2019 Tour Dates

Address: 20179 McKernan Rd. Chelsea, MI 48118


Please be prepared to move-about in the open air and to endure whatever weather Mother Nature sends our way! Tours run for about 75 minutes. We reserve the right to limit or cancel tours during dangerous conditions like lightning, very high winds, or extreme heat.

Q: What do the tours consist of?

A: You will be taken from species to species and enter the pastures and yards with many of the animals. We’ll tell you their stories, including where they came from before, how they were rescued, and who they have become since.

Q: Are the tours child-friendly, or do you have special kid tours?

A visit to the sanctuary is appropriate for children. They will get to meet all sorts of animals, and many enjoy being touched or scratched. The sanctuary is an environment of respect and compassion and there are no graphic pictures.

Q: Can I feed the animals?

A: Many of our animals are on special diets, so please do not feed any food to the animals at the sanctuary.

Q: Can I bring my dog?

A: For the safety and comfort of both our rescued animals and your dog, dogs are not allowed on sanctuary grounds.

Registered service animals are the only exception to this rule, and must be kept on-leash at all times.

Q: Can I bring my own food?

A: Yes, but please do not include meat, eggs, dairy, or animal by-products out of respect for the animals, staff, and fellow visitors. You may be asked to put your food back in the car for consumption elsewhere if it does not meet these criteria
