Farm Sanctuary, Los Angeles

You've heard me boast about Farm Sanctuary before in my posts: Mary Had A Little Lamb...But She Didn't Eat It! and Give A Lucky Turkey A Happy Thanksgiving! and I Just Became A Farm Sanctuary Member!

I've been planning a trip to one of their locations ever since I became a member.

Living in Ohio, I naturally thought that I would visit their Watkins Glen, NY location.  But instead on a recent trip to California, I was able to check out the Los Angeles location, which was founded in 2005.

You don't need to be a member of the sanctuary to take their hour long tour, but wouldn't you just feel better?  Their $5 tour offered only on Sundays allows you to get up close and personal with various farm animals who were fortunate enough to land their forever home at this 26-acre sanctuary.  Unfortunately, they are there because they were abused, in a bad situation or left for dead.  The 100 cows, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens and one lama got lucky and were rescued, many more are not so fortunate.  You can learn about each animal's story during the tour and a lot more.

Make a plan to check out Animal Sanctuary, it's an experience you won't forget.

Check it out!
