Skylands Animal Sanctuary welcomes visitors for tours during the warmer months. (Tours are currently closed to 2019).
In the meantime, the sanctuary welcomes volunteers to help care for the more than 170 animals on the farm. Volunteers may engage in a variety of activities, including...
Raking and mucking coops and barns. Even if you can't make it to the farm on a regular basis, you can learn how to help - by sharing videos, for example - the farm's (and all) animals.
Sponsors are also needed to "adopt" the farm's residents. Donations from sponsors help pay for the "adopted" animals continuing care.
