Visiting an Animal Sanctuary

We visited the Catskill Animal Sanctuary on Sunday and got to meet some amazing animals that were lucky enough to find their way there! The sanctuary is a beautiful patch of land (about 123 acres) in Saugerties, NY that, since it’s opening, in 2001, has saved over 4,000 animals! We were able to hear different animal’s stories and hear our guide’s passion for spreading the importance of veganism for the animals, for the environment, and for ourselves. Dash loved petting all the animals and mimicking their sounds.  (He says he liked the cow best, but I think it was the turkey- so soft!) Sailor enjoyed being out in the sun and breathing in the fresh air at the farm. They are truly running a great mission out there, and if you happen to be in the area, I highly recommend a visit! (Although don’t be surprised if you leave with the urge to never eat – (insert your favorite meat product here). The also offer vegan cooking classes- which we’ve taken once before and would love to take another, and have a small B&B on the property.  Here are some of my favorites from the day, if you’d like to take a peek!
