At Black Dawg Farm and Sanctuary, we offer a unique and immersive farm tour experience so people can meet and learn about the animals and their stories.
We are a farm animal rescue agency that provides permanent shelter to the residents entrusted with our care. We have many different animal residents, such as horses, cows, donkeys, alpacas, goats, sheep, pigs, birds, and bunnies, who have come from many difficult situations.
Our approach differs from petting zoos and other places that use animals for entertainment. We value each animal as an individual; here, they are not exploited for human entertainment where forced interactions exist, such as in a petting zoo. The petting zoo experience is designed to allow humans to handle the animals regardless of whether it’s safe, appropriate, or consensual.
Resident comfort, desires, and routines are prioritized over visitor engagement. We focus on providing individualized animal care and centering the resident’s emotional and physical well-being rather than prioritizing human desires.
We have several ambassador residents who are more amiable to human interaction as long as they have the choice to do so.
Our residents have their own stories, needs, and preferences. We work with each of our animal residents to help them with their physical and emotional issues so that they may lead better and happier lives.
We will also discuss the plight of farmed animals and share our residents’ stories.
