Animal experience hosted by Kaleigh

2 hours
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English

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.

COVID19 safety protocols
We are taking the safety of our community very seriously. Face coverings are mandatory for ALL visitors and tour guides. Hand sanitizer is available at check-in and throughout the tour path. Shared spaces, such as bathrooms are sanitized regularly. As the tour is outdoors in open spaces, you'll be able to easily socially distance, just stay close enough to hear instructions from your tour guide.

This is an absolutely magical experience. Knowing stories about rescued animals & spending time interacting with them was such an eye opener for us. We will visit again for sure. Everyone should spend time knowing about these animals as their stories are beautiful. I wish there are more animal sanctuaries like these and more and more people become empathetic to these beautiful creatures. It’s a must visit for everyone. All proceeds are going to the care of the animals. I am gonna visit again with my parents soon. ❤️❤️

It was a wonderful tour. Brenda was a great guide and you could tell how much the animals loved her. Every time we entered a new pasture, one or two animals would always approach us and rub on her which was really sweet.

We had a great time at Arnold’s Acres. The tour was casual yet very informative and fun. My kids got up close to so many farm animals for their very first time. I felt like it was a healing place for the animals and guests. There is definitely a plant based message here but presented in a way I don’t even think meat eaters would get defensive over.
