Want to come up and visit the animals?
Check out the dates we are open for visits below.
2020 Visiting Days:
Visiting hours are 12-4 pm.
We ask for a donation of $10/adult and $5/child (5-15yrs). 100% of all donations goes towards feeding and caring for the animals at the sanctuary.
Visiting days are scheduled as the volunteers and owner know their work schedules and can commit to a date. We try to give as much notice as possible.
Feel free to bring a blanket and a vegan lunch to these events as well.
* Please no companion animals (cats, dogs, etc.) allowed on the sanctuary grounds.
** We ask please don’t bring any non-Vegan food to the sanctuary i.e. dairy, cheese, eggs, fish, or meat of any kind. Thank you!
2020 Visiting Days:
Sunday, April 13th from noon-4pm is our 2020 Opening Day!
Please note: The sanctuary owner, Debbie Kowalski, runs the sanctuary as well as working a full-time job as an ICU nurse. Our visiting hours are based on the work schedules of Debbie and the board members that run tours, so please plan your visits for the posted visitation days only. You can email us with any questions.
Work parties start off burning some calories cleaning barn stalls, maintaining the paddock areas, fluffing barns, or anything else that needs to get done. After the work is over, the food begins! We all sit down to share a vegan potluck and spend some time giving the animals treats and getting some animal kisses.
2020 Work Parties:
March 30th – Sunday
Work starts at 12 noon sharp!
Please RSVP to this event via email or preferably our Facebook page, through the work party event. If we have an idea of how many people will be helping, we can plan out our workday.
*Don’t forget to wear appropriate clothing, your boots, and some work gloves. Please note this is an adults-only event. If you have any questions please email us here.
