The Sanctuary is open to the public for tours where they can come face-to-face with animals they would only think of as food and to learn their stories (on Saturdays and Sundays, April through October).
The Sanctuary also needs volunteer help 365 days a year with cleaning barns, coops and pastures.
"Starting with an empty, un-fenced hay field, in a few short years we grew faster than we ever imagined. We’ve raised funds to build two large barns, two sheds for the cattle, five chicken coops, a duck/goose shed and pond, a modest animal hospital/treatment room and visitor center–and almost a mile of fencing. This has allowed us to rescue hundreds of animals who either stay here for life or are adopted out to loving homes that meet our strict criteria.
The shelter regularly takes in, or works to place, other farm animals that are victims of cruelty and neglect. Most of these animals are rescued during investigations of farms, stockyards, auctions, and slaughterhouses; others arrive from humane societies and SPCA cruelty cases. A surprising number of our rescued animals come from the streets of New York City. For the first time in their lives, these animals that have only known fear, isolation and pain now enjoy warm and clean barns, nourishing food, veterinary care and love."
