Located in the New York’s Hudson Valley, Catskill Animal Sanctuary (CAS) is a 110-acre haven for horses and farm animals rescued from cruelty and neglect. In addition to emergency rescue, CAS provides innovative programs that educate the public about the sentience of farm animals, and the impacts of agribusiness and institutionalized cruelty on animals, people, and the planet.
CAS offers weekend and special group tours, vegan cooking classes, speaking engagements, a summer day camp for kids, and a host of compassionate programming year round at its primarily solar-powered Sanctuary. Lodging and meeting space are available on site at The Homestead, a beautifully-renovated pre-Revolutionary War farmhouse. Since 2001, CAS has rescued over 2,000 animals, and has worked in tandem with law enforcement to bring animal abusers to justice. Founder/Director Kathy Stevens blogs for the Huffington Post and is the author of the highly-acclaimed books, Where the Blind Horse Sings and Animal Camp.
