Tour of Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary

Short notice! Meet the animals and hear their stories!

Poplar spring has 200 rescued animals - cows, pigs, chickens, goats, sheep, turkeys, bunnies, etc. - on 400 beautiful acres outside Poolesville, MD - within an hour of most places in the DC-Baltimore area.

The tour is kid- and wheelchair-friendly and will be given by sanctuary co-founder Terry Cummings. Even if you've been to the Poplar open house or Thanksgiving events, this is different - more animal time, more hands-on.

When you arrive, open the gate to drive in, then close the gate behind you. Drive about a mile along the gravel road until you get near the end and can see some of the buildings on the property. We'll gather there. You can park your vehicle on the grass by the side of the road.

The tour is being organized by Compassion for Animals. You can RSVP here or via [masked]. If you're interested in carpooling, mention that here or email [masked].

    Very well planed, informative and interesting and a wonderful fall day. Casper the new calf, only 3 months old was so sweet and playful as was the shy lamb. So many friendly animals! Chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows, sheep and of course those silly goats!
