Definitely a must for all animal lovers. How they rescue and take care of all of the farm animals is altruistic and compassionate. Food, restroom, and gift shop available. The entire tour only takes about 2 hours and the opportunities you get to feed and...More

One has to visit to appreciate the work done here. Great people, lots of saved animals and they could always use help.

If I stay in one of the cabins on the property (I realized they are fully booked for this year) will I have opportunities to interact with the animals aside from the tour, or only on the tour? Thank you.

Additionally, please note that if you are a B&B guest you can wander around the sanctuary after tours and observe the animals from outside the enclosures. Thank you for asking and we look forward to seeing you soon!
