Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary
To RSVP for this opportunity...
P.O. Box 1329, Woodstock, NY 12498
Surrounded by the Catskill Mountains in the town made famous for peace and music, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary provides sanctuary to over 200 rescued cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, rabbits and goats.
We are a place where visitors can come face to face with these animals who most only know as dinner and learn about the benefits of plant based food choices. 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!
At the heart of our mission is the hands-on work of rescuing, rehabilitating and caring for farm animal refugees â€” as well as educating the public about the horrific treatment of animals bred and killed for human consumption.
WFAS is driven by the simple philosophy that kindness and respect to animals is our moral duty and that all the creatures that share this earth are here with us and not for us. Like our faithful dogs and lap-sitting cats, farm animals are feeling individuals who deserve to be treated with compassion and to live free of fear and suffering.
WFAS depends on volunteers to make our daily operations, rescue, education and advocacy efforts possible. Volunteers are always appreciated to help staff clean housing and coops, assist with grounds maintenance, prepare and set-up our visitor center, and other projects (maybe some painting or assisting feeding animals). In addition, volunteers are needed to help with office tasks and outreach. Pack yourself a lunch if you are coming for a full day (vegan of course, out of respect for the animal residents).
