We are thrilled that the Catskills Animal Sanctuary in Saugerties — about two hours north of NYC — has reopened to the public. The sanctuary sits on 150 acres and provides refuge for rescued farm animals. A founding tenant of Catskills Animal Sanctuary, which considers itself a “teacher sanctuary,” is the belief in “sameness,” that we as humans share much with other animals; their individuality, desire to live and the way they experience emotions. Public tours are family friendly, and in addition to learning about animals participants learn about veganism. For those who don’t want to make the drive in one day, the sanctuary boasts a 200-year-old homestead with rooms available for rent.
For a post-sanctuary bite, we recommend Black-Eyed Susie’s, which has plenty of vegan offerings.
