Please join us for our upcoming events. We offer events at the sanctuary farm as well as off-site. Our events range from celebrations to health-centered educational seminars and group classes, to horsemanship activities, community fundraising events, to special activities in support of special needs groups. Unless otherwise noted, all our events are family-friendly and children are welcome. Visiting us and attending our events is a great and enjoyable way to support our important mission. You don’t have to be familiar with animals or be an activist of any sort. We welcome all friendly faces and look forward to meeting you!
