Catskill Animal Sanctuary rescues farm animals from cruelty and neglect, and educates the public about how they can live a more compassionate lifestyle. And in the summer they run a camp to teach kids about farm animals.

Nonhuman animals have a right to live their lives free of suffering and exploitation by humans.

Catskill Animal Sanctuary exists to provide them with love and safety until they do.

The Sanctuary is a 148-acre refuge in New York's Hudson Valley for eleven species of farmed animals rescued from cruelty, neglect, and abandonment. Thanks to the generosity of people like you, over 4,000 animals have been rescued since 2001. Between 250 and 350 residents call the Sanctuary home at any given time.

We believe that looking an animal in the eye and seeing someone — not something — looking back is one of the most profound shifts human beings can make in their understanding of the world and their place in it. And so we welcome visitors through toursovernight stays, and events.

As the very best way to end animal suffering, improve our health, and heal our ailing planet, Catskill Animal Sanctuary advocates veganism and provides support and encouragement through a culinary program.
