Tours of Farm Sanctuary’s Northern California Shelter
The animals at Farm Sanctuary love visitors as much as you’ll love touring our farm animal shelters! Our sanctuaries are home to hundreds of rescued cows, pigs, turkeys, and other farm animals — and each has a special story. After meeting our farm animal friends, visitors can browse through our Education Center, filled with literature, videos, displays, and cruelty-free gift items.
Guided tours are held at designated times throughout the year. Our current schedule is listed below. Please check back for updates and special tour events. Tours will begin promptly at the designated time. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before the tour.

For their safety and the safety of our animal residents, companion animals are not allowed on guided tours or 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.
Farm Sanctuary offers special tours for groups with 10 or more people — including schools, environmental clubs, and other groups. If you are a teacher or group leader and would like to arrange a special tour, please call 530-865-4617 ext. 105 to set up an appointment.
For important safety reasons concerning our tour guests and the animals, group tours are limited to ages 12 and older.
