The Sanctuary

The Sanctuary is set on 110 acres of beautiful farmlands and rolling landscapes in New York's Hudson Valley and is home to more than 10 species of farm animals that have been rescued from abandonment, cruelty, and neglect. More than 4,000 animals have already been rescued since the sanctuary’s inception, including cows, pigs, goats, horses, and ducks and the farm is home to up to 350 residents at a time.

The Catskill Animal Sanctuary offers a range of tours, events, children’s camps, and overnight stays for all ages with a focus on animal conservation, rehabilitation, and care. In addition to aid and care for rescued animals, the Sanctuary offers a wide variety of programs and events designed to educate people about the exploitation of farm animals, the institutionalized suffering of food animals, and conservation of animals in general. The Sanctuary champions veganism and also offers a unique vegan culinary program in light of this. Best Day Trips from NYC: Catskill Animal Sanctuary - Photo: Catskill Animal Sanctuary
