Watkins Glen, NY

New York Shelter


The health and safety of the entire Farm Sanctuary family is of the utmost importance. As a precautionary measure due to COVID-19 concerns, we are temporarily suspending public programs and events at our Watkins Glen, New York Sanctuary. This includes all tours, visitors, accommodations, and volunteer parties until further notice. We will continue to closely monitor the situation as it evolves, and provide updates on farmsanctuary.org in the weeks to come.

And until your next visit please keep up with our Watkins Glen residents on Facebook and Instagram.

For questions please contact us at info@farmsanctuary.org

Nestled in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York, the rolling green pastures of Farm Sanctuary’s 275-acre New York shelter are home to more than 800 rescued farm animals. Spend the day with us and take an hour-long guided tour, browse our unique gift shop, learn more about farm animals in our Visitor Center, or enjoy a snack on our scenic deck. We are located next door to Sugar Hill State Forest, just west of Watkins Glen.
