A Visit To This South Carolina Animal Sanctuary Is Perfect For Your Next Outing

Much of the Palmetto State is considered farm country. In fact, according to the Farm Bureau, in 2015, more than 25,000 farms (large and small) were located in South Carolina. But, there’s only one Cotton Branch Farm Animal Sanctuary. It’s a working farm dedicated solely to farm animals that needed rescuing. And whether you just want to take a tour and meet some of these adorable and loving creatures, or want to volunteer your time to helping with the upkeep of this amazing rescue farm, a visit here will touch your heart.
