Non-human animals have a right to live their lives free of suffering and exploitation. Catskill Animal Sanctuary exists to provide them with love and safety until they do.
Catskill is a 110-acre refuge in New York’s Hudson Valley for twelve species of farmed animals rescued from cruelty, neglect, and abandonment. Over 3,500 animals have been rescued since they were founded in 2001; between 250 and 350 reside with them at any given time.
They believe that looking an animal in the eye and seeing someone — not something — looking back, is one of the most profound shifts human beings can make in their understanding of the world and their place in it. And so they welcome visitors through tours, overnight stays, events, and a children’s camp.
As the very best way to end animal suffering, improve our health, and heal our ailing planet, Catskill Animal Sanctuary advocates veganism and provides support and encouragement through a culinary program.
