O que você fará

Enjoy a wonderful and educational visit to our beautiful and peaceful Black Dawg Farm and Sanctuary, in Rainier, Washington!

Meet the farm animals, learn more about the rescue work that we do, and walk away with a better sense of what it takes to run a 24/7 Sanctuary for abused and neglected farm animals.

TOURS: At Black Dawg Farm and Sanctuary, we offer a unique and immersive farm tour experience, where visitors actually get to enter the animal enclosures and interact with the animals.

Upon arrival, visitors are greeted and learn the story of Black Dawg Farm and Sanctuary, how we are making a difference, and our plans for current and future care of farm animals.

From there, visitors receive a brief safety and rule checklist, and then we are off to meet, mingle and learn about the various animals at the sanctuary. So fun, so interesting!

The animals are allowed to approach people for interaction, not the other way around. This is a great time for photo opportunities.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit, we serve as a rescue agency and permanent home for the farm animals in our care. Most have suffered from abuse, abandonment and neglect.

The goal of our tours at Black Dawg Farm and Sanctuary is to educate people about the plight of farmed animals and how people can get involved.

Plan on wearing tennis shoes, hiking boots and/or boots, and appropriate clothing for the weather.

I have 45 years experience of working, training and caring for animals. I've been an animal lover since I was little, my dream was to be a veterinarian and one day to have a sanctuary.
At nine years old, I saw a special on PBS about a couple that created a sanctuary where orphaned children and abused animal's healed each other. This was something I always kept in the back of my mind and was the inspiration in starting Black Dawg.
I grew up on a farm and was involved in 4H and FFA. I worked in veterinary medicine as a technician for 15 years, helping to give insight and structure to our animal care program.
My husband Tom, and co-founder, is an avid animal lover and always has been. Tom holds a degree in construction management and early childhood education. He has volunteered time with emotionally and physically challenged children.

Do yourself a favor and book a visit to Black Dawg ASAP after you read this. This was such an amazing experience! While we toured the grounds, Kelly was very thorough in explaining the use for each area, the history of it, and plans for future expansion and/or changes. There were a few volunteers on-site during my tour and they were all very friendly, pausing their tasks to greet and welcome me. One volunteer even took photos of me meeting the purrfect sanctuary kittens and told me about some nice travel destinations in Indiana! (Thank you!!!) The animals are beautiful and full of love. The intimate encounters were truly priceless. I loved giving the pigs a scratch and walking with the goats the most! Every animal had a distinct personality and I was in awe observing them in their element- roaming, eating, playing, and just being. The dogs were also adorable and protective of their flock, like older siblings. Kelly was the perfect host and tour guide. She knows each animal and their story like they are her children. She is a great storyteller and made me feel so welcome and comfortable, I felt like I had known her for years. The value of the tour was amazing! As a plant based eater, it was very fulfilling to know that I was supporting animal welfare. This visit reminded me that all animals- from the cats and dogs, to the pigs and goats, from the chickens and ducks, to the cows and horses… ALL of them are sentient beings who deserve love, care, and respect. Black Dawg Farm and Sanctuary offers all of that and more. I’m grateful that this organization exists and it was such a pleasure to visit. Thank you so much to Kelly, her team, and the sanctuary volunteers for all of your hard work and care in providing a safe haven for all of these animals. I will be back for sure- to pet the pigs and cuddle with the cats. Can’t wait to see you all again!

A perfect tour! Absolutely loved visiting with the well cared for animals. They are all so lucky to have their days spent here. It inspired me to help make a change in my own community as well.
