Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is one of the country’s most recognized and respected sanctuaries for farmed animals. It is where animals who once knew pain, suffering, fear and loss, now know healing, safety, love and trust. At the heart of their mission is the hands-on work of rescuing, rehabilitating and caring for farmed animal refugees while advocating on behalf of farmed animals everywhere through educational tours and outreach events.
We are a place where visitors can come face to face with the animals they may only know as dinner and learn about the devastating effects of modern-day agribusiness on the animals, the environment and human health. Here you can frolic with goats in a large open pasture, sit down with a pig who wants nothing more than a belly rub, cuddle with chickens who seek out your attention or get nuzzled by some very friendly sheep!
WFAS is not just for vegetarians and vegan but for anyone who is curious to get to know individual farm animals, observe their natural behaviors, learn more about how their brethren live on factory farms and just spend time around animals you probably don’t get to see day-to-day.
