We are always happy to welcome guests to the sanctuary and the animals love meeting new friends. However, we do have some rules to follow so you and the animals stay safe.
As we are essentially an outdoor sanctuary, we have some crushed shell pathways or areas a typical wheelchair can use. You can get close to most pastures from our main driveway and meet animals. Because pigs like to poop everywhere your wheels may run into poop.
You can bring fresh organic carrots or unshelled and unsalted peanuts. Our animals are on very specific diets and types of foods, so anything you bring will be fed to the animals during their normal feeding times. We don’t allow direct feeding because of the chaos that ensues.
No, but they are very large and can overwhelm most people if you get too close.
Yes, but do it kindly. Our animals know they are safe and they love humans. But they do get scared so be kind and hug wisely.
We are open to the public by appointment only. Please request a visit here
While we would love to meet your dog, some of our animals may be scared of them. So no dogs, cats, Peacocks, Wolves, Coyotes, and absolute no bears allowed.

We have clean Port-A-Potty.
No human food, but we can fill your reusable water bottle for free from our state of the art water filtration system.
