We’re Open For Public Tours Every Saturday & Sunday!

For the safety of our staff and rescued animals, we do not allow drop in visits. If you’d like to visit, you’ll need to schedule your tour in advance, and agree to our safety guidelines. Please choose from a 90-minute tour, a 60-minute tour, or a Day Pass below.

Looking to take a private tour on a weekday this summer? Private tours are available by appointment only.

90-min Regular Tours: A 90-minute guided tour of the Sanctuary. You’ll get to connect and cuddle with the residents who love affection (and say a hi from afar to the shy ones). You’ll hear their inspiring stories, learn about where they came from, and get to know about standard industry practices. You’ll also learn more about how we can all create a more compassionate and sustainable future for all beings. Though all material is presented in a gentle, appropriate way, due to the duration and content of this tour, we offer a different option for visitors with children under the age of 5.

60-min Family Focused Tours: Bringing a toddler? This is perfect for them! We offer this 60-minute tour designed for maximum engagement of young children (under 4). You’ll connect with a select number of residents, learn their stories and what makes them unique as individuals, and cuddle with the residents who appreciate the attention from small humans. This tour is also a good option for those with limited mobility, or someone looking for a shorter tour option.

Day Passes: Day Passes are back! This unique way of visiting is one of the best opportunities to experience the Sanctuary at your own, leisurely pace. Stroll the grounds freely from 10am-3pm, saying hello to as many of our rescued animal residents as you may find along the way– including our iconic “Underfoot” residents, who free-roam the property all day long! Your day pass purchase also includes a complimentary 90-min or 60-min guided educational tour where you can learn more about the stories of the animals who live at CAS and have an opportunity to meet more up close.

Alert For Visitors With Birds: HPAI H5N1 (highly pathogenic avian flu) remains a threat to both domesticated and wildlife birds in our region of New York. Due to the highly transmissible and deadly nature of this strain of Avian Flu, we will not be visiting with our resident chickens, turkeys, ducks or geese on tours. We also recommend that you reconsider visiting at this time if you have a flock at home. You can learn more about our avian flu prevention efforts here, and, in the meantime, check out our virtual programming options!


Cancellation Policy:

All Sanctuary tours are held rain or shine. However, in extreme weather, we may need to make adjustments to the start time and/or duration of your tour. If we cancel your tour due to weather, a full refund will be issued. Unfortunately, as a small nonprofit organization, we are unable to issue ticket refunds if you are unable to attend.
