COVID Safety Procedures (Updated March 2023):
  • Based on CDC Recommendations and NYS policies, we are no longer requiring proof of vaccination or masks (indoors or outdoors) to visit Catskill Animal Sanctuary.
  • We ask that visitors please respect Tour Staff’s personal decisions to be wearing masks as they interact with a wide variety of guests.
  • We will continue to encourage (not require) limited occupancy and mask-wearing in our small, indoor Welcome Hut and restroom trailers.
  • All visitors must agree to this statement: I understand that due to the highly contagious nature of this virus that even with safety measures in place I may be potentially at risk because I am around other people. I waive Catskill Animal Sanctuary of any responsibility if I contract COVID-19 from this or any visit.
  • If you have booked a tour and are experiencing a fever or other COVID symptoms or have tested positive for COVID in the past 5 days, please stay home! We will help you reschedule your tour for another weekend.
Thank you for understanding — and for helping all of us to stay safe.

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.
