Located in Poolesville, Maryland, Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary is a 400 acre non-profit that is home to over 200 rescued animals – from horses, mules, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, and many other animals to free ranging wildlife.
During the tour we will walk around to all the different barns and visit the animals to meet them and hear the stories of where they came from. Every animal has a name and a story, and many are very friendly and sociable. We will be able to interact with the animals, and during the tour you will be able to pet many of them, give a pig a belly rub, and hold some of the chickens.
*Once arriving at the sanctuary, there is a shut and latched green gate at the entrance, please get out of your cars to open and shut the gate. We will meet at the picnic tables for the tour.
**There is a suggested $5 donation per person. They also have a small gift shop and accept cash, check and credit cards for gift shop purchases and donations.
