Det skal I lave

Visitors to the sanctuary get to meet all of the animals. We take a walk through their habitats and talk about where they came from, what hardships they have faced and how they have overcome them. Some of the animals get snacks during the tour, other animals prefer to get pets instead, while others might prefer a different activity.

During the tour we meet and interact with pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys, special needs animals and sometimes the sanctuary dogs.

The sanctuary is home to 16 pigs of all sizes. You will meet big 600lbs pigs, little 100lbs pigs, naked pigs, pigs who love belly rubs and more.

We also visit the rescued hens and turkeys who love to flock around your feet and ask for their favorite treats.

Other things to note
Wear appropriate shoes and clothing. Boots or waterproof shoes are recommended. During the summer sneakers are good too. Please do not wear high heels or clothes you would hate to get dirty.

I have been working in animal welfare and research for over 10 years. In 2017 I left my career as a college science instructor to cofound a farm animal rescue which came to be known as Heartwood Haven. We have rescued over 1000 farm animals ranging from chickens to goats to pigs and even special needs animals. All animals here are rescued and living their best lives here at the sanctuary.

Kate is very nice and my group really enjoyed the tour. We learned a lot about the animals and their history, and it was very cool interacting with them. Some of the pigs love belly rubs! Kate was very receptive to questions which we appreciated as well.

Kate is doing a valuable service for these animals. She is dedicated, hard-working, caring and an advocate for the many species she looks after. My tour was informative, eye-opening, educational and gives me more realization of what factory farms are like and the difficult realities of how animals are treated. Kate is so compassionate about her work and her mission with these animals that she knows personally, by names and can communicate their stories in such a way as to paint a bigger picture. She is gifted in her education, experience and assistance to be the one who built this incredibly open environment for so many species to be humanely living their lives. I hope her goal to find a larger parcel of land to expand her special mission comes true. I now have a charity to follow and to give more money to annually! Thanks, Kate, for all you do every day!

I had such an amazing time. I learned so much about the animals and loved hearing their individual stories. These animals are so well loved. Everyone should support this sanctuary in anyway possible. I highly recommend all animal lovers visit.

Incredible experience. So great to meet all the wonderful animals, hear their stories, and see the new lives they’ve been given at Heartwood Haven. Already thinking about when we’ll visit again.

We had a terrific time! Kate is a great host. She has deep knowledge of the animals in her care and clearly holds love for every single one of them (81 and counting!). The tour was a wonderful combination of Kate sharing her scientific knowlege along with heartbreaking and hilarious anecdotes about the many sweet beings. We appreciate that Hearwood provides advocacy for animals without an advocate. We brought veggies for the animals and feeding them was an absolute highlight. We hope people will visit and support this awesome sanctuary!
