What you'll do

Upon arrival you will take a tour of the sanctuary, I will explain the daily routine and you will meet the animals and learn about their care and how they came to reside here. You will learn about
their lives in factory farms and other trends that have caused them to end up in sanctuaries. You will then have the opportunity to interact with them one on one. We know it will be hot so feel free to jump in the pool in your clothes if you wish, and you will keep cool the whole time.
Other things to note
You will be able to interact with the animals, however if you are not comfortable with that you can view them through a fence

As far as I can remember I have always loved animals and had a myriad of pets. I later started volunteering at an animal sanctuary and then in 2014 I started my own sanctuary. Running a sanctuary has to taught me to be keenly aware of the plight of these animals.
I learned about the care of each species and often how to treat them myself when they take ill. In addition, there are many other aspects of keeping a sanctuary going that don’t involve direct animal contact which I will share with you.

We had such a lovely time meeting all the animals in the sanctuary! Lisa is a great host and all her animals are clearly so incredibly happy and well taken care of. We got to pet beautiful pigs, goats and donkeys and our souls are all replenished!

We had a great experience at the farm with Lisa. It was a perfect experience for friends who are social distancing to hang out too. We had a great time meeting all of the sweet animals and learning about their care. We all fell in love a few times, first with Teddy the sheep, then Truffles the pig and later Dante the cow. I would highly recommend visiting Lisa and her animals.

Lisa was fantastic! Her animals are well loved and the entire experience was great. We made many new friends visiting the farm and we loved hearing all the stories surrounding each animal's rescue. The highlight was definitely giving everyone "treats" at the end and getting lots of interaction with some of the more shy animals.

This was a fun experience to interact with animals and learn morn about taking care of rescue animals. I would recommend for anyone that wants a small, manageable interaction with animals. Lisa was a lovely host and answered our questions.

This was a great experience. I am not really an animal person but I decided to try something new. It was interesting to hear about the animals and how they ended up in the sanctuary. Lisa is doing a great job. I enjoyed it and you will too!
