Tours of Farm Sanctuary’s Northern California Shelter

self-guided Tours

We offer self-guided tours of the Orland sanctuary to Farm Sanctuary members all year between the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. During these tours, you are able to stroll through the sanctuary grounds and observe the animals from outside their enclosures. You do not need a reservation for these tours. Simply stop in at the People Barn upon your arrival to the sanctuary and one of our staff will assist you. If you are not a member, you can become a member with a donation of $20 or more.

Additional access restrictions to specific barns and areas on the shelter may be in place at any time for animal health reasons.

We are not currently offering guided tours at the Orland sanctuary.

Companion Animals

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.
