Frequently ask questions
Yes. All visits must be during one of our tours, fundraisers, or celebrations. Our team is busy at work running the sanctuary. We cannot accommodate drop in visitors.
You will be taken from species to species and enter the pastures and yards with many of the residents. During the tours we share the resident’s rescue stories, information about the various species of farmed animals, and the industries they came from.
Yes, kids are welcome and tours are appropriate for all ages.
Many of our animals are on special diets. Please do not feed any food to the animals during your visit to the sanctuary unless MCOH staff has provided that food to you specifically to give as treats.
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.
Yes, but please do not bring any meat, eggs, dairy, or animal by-products to the sanctuary 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.
The sanctuary is closed during the week. Our staff is working during the week and we do not accommodate drop-ins.
