As of May 7, 2022, we have started to reopen after being closed for 2 years due to Covid. During those 2 years a lot of things have changed for us, including like most other businesses, that we are dealing with staffing shortages. Because of this, many of our policies and programs have had to change.
Volunteers – Our volunteer program is on hold indefinitely due to staffing shortages.
Tours – All tours will need to be scheduled by appointment so that we have a designated staff person available to give you a tour. Currently, but subject to change, tours can be scheduled through our office for Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 10am and 2pm. Tours of the animal sanctuary will last around 1 hour and will include visiting with many of the animals. Tours of the nature sanctuary are booked separately, also through the office. The office can be reached by emailing us through our contact page or by leaving a voicemail at (315) 737-9339.
There is no charge for tours, however, donations are greatly appreciated.
Purrfect Readers and Cat Room Visitors – First time visitors will need to book an orientation tour before coming to read with the cats or visit the cat rooms for the first time. Once you’ve had the orientation, you can set up a time to come and visit. As we are slowly re-opening, we prefer to know in advance when people are planning to come. For Purrfect Readers, an adult must accompany children at all times.
We always love to have visitors! You are most welcome to come meet the animals and walk around the farm and its many flower gardens. For more information or to find out how to schedule a tour of the farm, check out our Tours Page.
