Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary

Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary (WFAS) is a non-profit organization and shelter that works to end the systematic abuse of animals used for food. At the heart of our mission is the hands-on work of rescuing, rehabilitating and caring for farm animal refugees -- as well as educating the public about the horrific treatment of animals who are raised in large, industrial factory farm systems.

Surrounded by the Catskill Mountains in the famous town of Woodstock, New York, WFAS provides sanctuary to cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, sheep, and goats who have been rescued from cases of abuse, neglect and abandonment. We are a place where visitors can come face to face with these animals who most only know as “dinner” and learn about the devastating effects of modern-day agribusiness on the animals, the environment and human health. Here you can frolic with goats in a large open pasture, sit down with a pig who wants nothing more than a belly rub, cuddle with chickens who seek out your attention or get nuzzled by some very friendly sheep!
