Visitors to the sanctuary get to meet all of the animals. We take a walk through their habitats and talk about where they came from, what hardships they have faced and how they have overcome them. Some of the animals get snacks during the tour, other animals prefer to get pets instead, while others might prefer a different activity.
During the tour we meet and interact with pigs, chickens, ducks, goats, special needs animals and sometimes the sanctuary dogs.
We visit the rescued hens who came to us from animal agriculture or they have survived predator attacks. They love to flock around your feet and ask for their favorite treats.
We house several roosters saved from cockfighting, sometimes we have dozens of birds saved from the cruel industry.
Next are the big pigs, Lucy, Ethel and Josie. They are 500lbs of curiosity and love. Ethel will even give you about kisses and many of the pigs like belly scratches. Brothers, Yoshi and Koopa also live with them.
Our goats Milo and Jack greet visitors by jumping on the gate to say hello. Milo is very curious to meet you and tug on all your zippers and buttons. Jack stands back but oftentimes can’t resist a good scratch begins the ears. They live with a giant red rooster named Robin who everyone loves.
Finally we meet our special needs pigs Fiona and Penelope. Both have difficulty walking but love getting treats.
