“Perhaps there is a language which is not made of words and everything in the world understands it.” – Frances Hodgson Burnett

For the safety of all members of our Herd, and to do our part in this unparalleled time, we will be closed until further notice (this includes all tours, cooking classes, sponsor visits, special events, and Homestead stays).

While we won’t see any of you in person for a while, we’re excited to share that we’ll soon be bringing the magic of Catskill Animal Sanctuary straight to your home — through our Virtual Sanctuary. This live streaming program has been in the works for a while, and we can’t think of a more essential time to connect with you and share: Michael Turkey’s mischief updates, “nose boops” from the sheep, up close goat shenanigans, species lessons, Breakin’ the Rules with Kathy, cooking demos, and so much more! 

You can stay in the loop on Virtual Sanctuary and all our other exciting programs by subscribing to Herd Around The Barn, our email newsletter.

Since You’re Here, Why Not Stay a While?

If you’re making the trip, consider staying at our 200-year-old, newly renovated farmhouse, The Homestead. The Homestead is currently only available as a full-house rental, for a minimum of five nights.
