This farmed animal sanctuary exemplifies their motto "Love Spoken Here" - each animal is known as an individual and is loved and cared for. It was especially beautiful to see family groups of animals able to remain together for life, when usually as farmed animals their families would be torn apart. This is a great opportunity to see the incredible personalities of cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, goats - very much like our beloved pet cats and dogs.

The Catskill Animal Sanctuary is a great place to visit if you love Farm Animals. This is a beautiful farm for abused animals that are lovingly taken care of. They clearly state that they encourage a vegan lifestyle, but at no time did they preach to you. Not for toddlers? Why not? I will be bringing my granddaughter there next week. Lambs, Goats, Pigs and Roosters were walking about the grounds like they lived there; that's right, they do live there, so you are expected to follow some simple rules. They don't allow any food on the grounds. They ask you to leave it in the car. The work that is being done there is compassionate and loving. I became a member and plan to volunteer some of my time. It's exactly what the website says it is, times 10. I met Tucker, a 3,000 lb. cow. When he slapped me in the face with his 2 foot tongue, they said he liked me. This day was far better than a zoo that you see animals from 100 feet away. Take the tour!!! Donate $40 and become an annual member to visit all year long.

Visited with a friend and did the $20 day pass pp plus a special “behind the scenes” tour ($8 pp) and it was totally worth it. We spent about an hour and a half wandering on our own before the actual tour. The tour was conducted by the Director and was a full 2 hours long. Questions are encouraged and we learned the story of most of the animals there. There were lots of opportunities to interact with and touch the animals. This is a wonderful place which provides a safe and peaceful home for so many rescued farm animals. The animals are so loved and respected and that is so obvious in every interaction.

Great place to meet animals, and learn about their individual personalities. Bring your kids, enjoy the sanctuary, and increase your compassion for All Animals!
