What you'll do

An afternoon visiting the sanctuary is time well-spent and a terrific experience for you or for the whole family. Promised Land's rescued farm friends love visitors as much as you’ll love meeting them! You will be touched by the animals' stories and have your own unforgettable stories to tell about your time spent with them.

Set on a century farm, amidst the rolling hills and hardwood forests of rural Northumberland County, this 1-hour experience will bring you up-close and personal with our rescued farm family. Hands-on play and grooming sessions with the horses and any other animal who feels like getting some extra love.

​• Get your friends and family involved!
• Organize a day trip and bring a plant-based picnic to enjoy on our scenic grounds
• Bond with co-workers by bringing the whole office out for a visit
• Forward information about our tours to everyone on your contact list

Finally, we love dogs and have four of our own, but please leave yours at home.

I really enjoyed taking a walk with Kat and the guests for a mid-afternoon walk through the rustling leaves in the forest. The animals including the dogs, mini horses and donkey all joined us for the walk, all without leads! It was very pleasant, to be surrounded by nature and learn about the animal residents and their back stories. What an inspiration to see and to learn by example how we can help with planet earth, the animals and the climate, even if it is a small step to begin with.

Kat's sanctuary experience is wonderful. You truly get to meet the animals and pet them. Loved going on a nature walk with a donkey and a goat!

My friend and I visited Kat's sanctuary today and had such a great time. The animals seem so happy and well taken care of. We got to meet a great variety of animals and felt very safe the entire time.

Kat has a really wonderful animal rescue where each animal is so unique, has a wonderful personality, and story. We came with 3 young kids and were worried about how the animals would take to them, but they pretty quickly bonded and my children kept talking about their new friends on the drive home and wanting to go back. Thanks Kat and I’m sure we will see you and the others again!

Kat was a great host and gave us a tour of the sanctuary. We had lots of time to explore and interact with all the animals.
