I am thrilled to announce that we have received accreditation by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries! GFAS establishes high standards of animal rescue and care and visited the Sanctuary to ensure that all aspects of our operations met their high standards.
Accreditation signifies that Catskill Animal Sanctuary meets GFAS’s rigorous and peer-reviewed equine and farm animal care standards which are confirmed by a comprehensive site visit. Accreditation also signifies adherence to standards addressing the sustainability of the organization, ethical principles, finances, staffing, education outreach, security and safety and other operational aspects. The accreditation status also provides a clear and trusted means for the public, donors, and government agencies to recognize Catskill Animal Sanctuary as an exceptional sanctuary.
I could not be prouder of the donors, volunteers, and staff who worked so hard to earn accreditation. You can see our high standards for yourself by coming for a visit! See you soon!
