Tours of Farm Sanctuary’s Northern California Shelter
The Orland shelter is currently closed to visitors due to recently reported cases of avian influenza in Butte County. This strain of flu is very dangerous to the birds. We are taking this measure to prevent someone from inadvertently bringing this illness to the sanctuary and infecting the birds. This strain of influenza is only a risk to the birds and is not a human health concern at this time. We appreciate your understanding during this closure.
We will provide notification as soon as we are able to reopen the shelter.
For their safety and the safety of our animal residents, companion animals are not allowed on the shelter grounds at any time. Dogs are welcome in our Visitor Center provided they are on a leash; however they may not be left unattended. Please do not leave companion animals inside your vehicle while you are visiting because temperatures inside of a vehicle can reach life-threatening conditions very quickly, even with windows open. If you are planning to bring your companion animals to Farm Sanctuary, please make sure that you have someone to watch them while you are touring our shelter. Thank you for your cooperation.
