Birthday parties & gatherings

Birthday parties at the sanctuary

We’re often asked if we allow birthday parties at the sanctuary. The short answer is yes, but let’s dive a bit deeper!

Guided tour + feedings

To schedule guided tour with a volunteer and have the opportunity to feed the animals, we ask for a minimum $50 donation. This will ensure you have volunteer support as you explore the property with your guests, and we will provide a bag of food pellets you can hand feed the animals with (under volunteer supervision).

Important note: At this time, there is no public restroom available. The home on property is a private residence. Plan accordingly!

Unguided visit

If you prefer to come on your own time and simply walk the property and visit the animals, entry is always free (though a small donation is encouraged and appreciated). However, please note that you will not be allowed to feed the animals. Refer to our hours & admission page for more information on visiting us.
