Farm Animal Care Conference


We invite you to join Farm Sanctuary for our annual Farm Animal Care Conference held on September 20 and 21 at our New York Shelter in Watkins Glen, amid the beautiful fall weather. This conference will offer a variety of workshops that give participants an in-depth look into what it takes to start and operate a farm animal sanctuary or to simply care for farm animals.

Our interactive seminars will provide participants with information about effective fundraising, program management, visitor and volunteer programs, and animal care. All participants will get hands-on experience with the animal residents at our shelter.


Members from our senior staff are excited to share the insight they’ve gained from more than 25 years of experience as the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization. Farm Sanctuary is uniquely qualified to offer expert training in farm animal care. Participants will leave with a greater understanding of what is needed to rescue and provide lifelong care for farm animals in a sanctuary setting.

The ticket cost for Farm Sanctuary’s Farm Animal Care Conference is $175 per person. All participants must be at least 18 years of age or older to attend this conference. The registration fee covers all workshop activities and materials as well as a delicious vegan continental breakfast and lunch on both days. Accommodations during this conference will not be provided, however, participants are welcome to camp on sanctuary grounds.

Registration is limited to ensure that each attendee gets the most out of this experience, so be sure to register today to reserve your spot!
