Our events at the sanctuary are a way for people to come to their own understanding that all species are deserving of respect and care. Every event is an occasion that kids (and their adults!) can connect with the nature, animals, learn about the benefits of plant-based living, the importance of caring for our earth, and fall in love with the residents here!

Upcoming events:


Sat. 7/20 from 3-7 pm. Riley White is offering 30 minute massages for $30, by appointment. Text her at (616) 915-5929 to set up an appointment, or stop by to say hello, meet the animals, see our expansion plans in person! 


Our next sanctuary tour date is Sat. 7/27 at 6 pm. The sanctuary tours are a very casual, simple way to get to know the animals here in a small group setting. You will learn about the animal's histories and what life is like now for them, what sanctuary life is like in general, take photos and videos, and just take time to connect with them as you'd like.

The tour and informative portion only lasts about 30 minutes depending on what group questions are asked; you may stay for as short or as long as you'd like! A waiver is required and donations are graciously accepted for our 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Find the event on our facebook page or email us ( to sign up. This small group is limited to 15 people.
