What you'll do
Join us for a day at the sanctuary and meet a variety of rescued farm animals. We'll share their stories of resilience and healing and talk a bit more about the industries they come from. You'll love meeting our animal ambassadors and may be surprised at what you learn, since we so rarely see the animals in our food system. The Experience will last approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Please be mindful that as a sanctuary for rescued animals, our priority is the physical and emotional well being of the rescued animals who call Charlie's Acres home. Our loved animal residents are completely free and always have a choice as to whether or not they want to interact with visitors and will reside at the sanctuary for the rest of their lives, where we'll have the honor of taking care of them.

About the organization
Charlie's Acres Farm Animal Sanctuary
Charlie’s Acres is a 32 acre sanctuary in the heart of California's wine country, dedicated to the care of rescued farm animals. We serve as a sanctuary where our animals can live out their natural lives in peace, and as a venue for showing the general public that these intelligent beings deserve our compassion.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Charlie's Acres Farm Animal Sanctuary.
