Dusk at Animal Place is one of several opportunities for the public to visit this 60-acre sanctuary for abused and discarded farmed animals in Vacaville. This is a more exclusive open-house event, where adults receive a private tour to experience the sanctuary as the sun goes down. Sunset is an extra-special time at the farm -- with the oak-covered hills transformed into gold -- and visitors get to help lock up the turkeys and chickens, call the goats in from hillsides, give the baby pot-bellied pigs their last belly rub of the day, and walk the dogs. After tucking in the critters for the night, giving many of them -- including the dogs, pigs, and rabbits -- their evening meals, visitors enjoy refreshments, too: wine and appetizers al fresco.
The dusk tours are on Saturday, August 20 (beginning at 7:00 p.m.), and Saturday, September 3 (beginning at 6:30 p.m.). The cost is $25.00. Anyone interested in attending these open-house events can get information online at http://www.animalplace.org or by calling 707-449-4814.
Animal Place is a nonprofit sanctuary for abused and discarded farmed animals located in Vacaville, California. Since 1989, Animal Place has been taking in animals who have been abused or neglected and have no place else to go. Animals rescued from auctions and stockyards and animals used in research also make up the many animals who share 60 acres of forest, meadow, pasture, hills and a small lake, peacefully living out the remainder of their lives. In addition to providing the day-to-day care of animals, Animal Place is an advocacy organization offering farm tours, volunteer training and outreach activities. More information on the sanctuary can be found online at http://www.animalplace.org.
