What you'll do

Meet us at Catskill Animal Sanctuary in the heart of the Hudson Valley, rich in history, natural beauty, and culture. You’ll be greeted by any one of our trained Tour Guides and our Underfoot Family, a group of animals who are so curious and well-behaved that they are happiest roaming around in a mixed-species herd. Don't be surprised if upon arrival you get up close and personal with Alice the Goat or Mary Frances the Potbelly.

On your tour, you will:

Stroll the Sanctuary grounds
Experience farmed animals as the unique individuals they truly are
Meet rescued animals and hear their stories
Understand what caring for these amazing animals has taught us
Learn about the plight of farmed animals and how you can help

The pace is leisurely, with plenty of time for questions and saying hello to the residents. Catskill Animal Sanctuary is a place of love. We believe that looking an animal in the eye and seeing someone — not something — looking back is one of the most profound shifts human beings can make in their understanding of the world and their place in it.

We look forward to your visit!

About the organisation: Catskill Animal Sanctuary



Located in New York’s Hudson Valley, Catskill Animal Sanctuary is a 148-acre refuge for farmed animals rescued from cruelty, neglect, and abandonment. The Sanctuary is a home for 250 - 350 residents at any given time. Through educational tours and compassionate programming, we advocate veganism as the very best way to end animal suffering, improve our health, and heal our ailing planet.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Catskill Animal Sanctuary.

Where you'll be

We'll begin with a brief history of the Sanctuary, then set off to meet our rescued residents and learn their individual rescue stories. Our tour guests often have a chance to belly-rub our pig friends, and meet some rescued roosters who will try to share some of their food with you! After meeting many more friends, your guide will end the tour at our educational center with a Q&A.

A wonderful place with beautiful animals and stories! We really felt like we got to know them and their struggles and learned what it meant to try to live a harm free lifestyle.

Took a trip upstate from the city for this experience, and it didn’t disappoint. It was a really lovely group experience. Highly recommend for animal lovers!

I left with my heart full. If you’re an animal lover, I can’t recommend this experience enough. You do learn of the horrors of what animals go through to become food, but it’s eye-opening for those that don’t know this information. I left informed and happy thanks to these beautiful animals and their caretakers!

A wonderful opportunity to meet farm animals up close. Passionate and caring guides. Bear in mind that this is a sanctuary for abandoned and abused farm animals however, so the guides have no love lost for people who eat meat.

Make sure you get to hang with Tucker the cow and Amelia and pig. If you’re not a vegan now you will be when you leave.
