As far as I can remember I have always loved animals and had a myriad of pets. I later started volunteering at an animal sanctuary and then in 2014 I started my own sanctuary. Running a sanctuary has to taught me to be keenly aware of the plight of these animals.
I learned about the care of each species and often how to treat them myself when they take ill. In addition, there are many other aspects of keeping a sanctuary going that don’t involve direct animal contact which I will share with you.

We had a great time! Lisa has a great place for these animals. You can tell she really loves all the animals. She calls them all by name and they are all very well taken care of. The place was very clean. I loved seeing most the animals free to roam as they please. She’s got pastures, shaded forest areas and a granite area, plus a nice garden type enclosure for the roosters. It was so cute to see the cows and horse coming to greet us and follow us along the tour. It’s a great place that these rescued animals are fortunate to have ended up at. Thanks for all you do Lisa!

I really enjoyed this experience! Lisa knew each animal by name and told us the story behind their rescue. We got lots of animal loving (especially the piggy belly rubs), and I didn't feel rushed at all. Actually, Lisa offered to let us stay behind after the tour if we wanted to go back to visit with any of the other animals. I was running low on time, so I wasn't able to stay. I do plan to go back soon!

I recommend this experience! It was fun learning about and interacting with the animals. I was surprised by how many different types of animals are here. Thanks for a great morning, Lisa!

Lisa's sanctuary is such a treat! We loved hearing how she came to have all the animals and the opportunity to pet them all. Such a fun quick trip if you're looking for something low key to do. All the animals were so sweet to us!
