Went here with my kiddos last weekend and we had a blast. We were able to brush and hugs cows. It was incredibly educational and a moving day. We will be back for sure!

Visited here for the first time. They are organized & professional. Well run sanctuary for 150 animals. Visitors can interact with the animals. Many volunteers on site to monitor. Staff makes brief presentation - very informative. Great for kids & adults.

My grandson was three at the time and absolutely loved it! They get to feed carrots to the horses and comb the cows with brushes. It's also a lesson in charity as they take in animals that need a home who may be crippled or...More
