The cold is upon us

and our residents are taking a break!

Thank you for checking in to see what events are planned or in planning! Beginning December 19, our resident animals will be taking a break from our programs to enjoy the holidays with our dedicated volunteers. As the cold weather sets in, our ability to do outdoor programs becomes more limited. Generally, we do not schedule programs for the months of January and February due to weather. However, please follow us on Facebook for the latest daily updates and announcements!

Some things to remember:

  • Our unicorn festival is being planned for April! We are working on several variations of the festival to cope with our Covid climate.

  • Barn tours, lessons and other standard programs should resume in March.

  • Winter is a GREAT time to sponsor and animal here and really make a difference!
