PIGS, a Sanctuary offers educational tours to the general public from May 1st through October 31st by appointment only.
All tours are walking tours. They last about an hour sometimes a little longer if the group has many questions. This is an all walking tour that starts with an introduction of how the sanctuary was formed. Your guide will then take you from one herd to the next introducing you to our animal residents and answering questions as they are asked. Visitors cannot enter animal areas but meet the animals along the perimeter of the fence lines. All tours will be cancelled in inclement weather.
Tour Days and Times:
Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m., 12 p.m. or 1 p.m.
Requested donation for a tour: $10 per person; $5 for Children under 12; $5 for Senior Citizens.
We can accommodate larger groups upon notice and encourage school and youth groups to join us. Please contact the sanctuary to make arrangements.
