What you'll do

If you are an animal lover visiting the Hudson valley, then Wayward Ranch must be a stop on your list of places to explore! We are a nonprofit animal sanctuary and rescue located on a beautiful 60 acre horse farm and would love to show you around and introduce you to our animals! Meet our horses, pigs, goats, and maybe even a dog or a cat, and learn their stories. This is a wonderful tour for young adults to take as an introduction to the world of animal welfare and rescue. We have learned a great deal from the our animals and the interactions we have had with them and we know you will too! Hands on animal interactions are included, with your choice to meet all of the farm animals or to focus on the goats, pigs, or horses in more detail.

I had a wonderful tour at the sanctuary! The tour guide shared a bit about every resident’s story and the opportunity to meet and interact with them. Most of the animals are very comfortable with humans and very happy to snuggle.

We had a lovely tour here that was one of the highlights of our weekend. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we loved meeting the animals and seeing how well they are cared for. This is also such an effective way of educating people about animal welfare without preaching to them, and we really appreciated everything that we learned. Would definitely come back!

So great! I love how they save/adopt/rescue all the animals and they tell you each animals own unique story. Staff was super friendly. You get to pet and play with the animals. The setting is out of this world!
