Chico Vegan Animal Place Tour

Please join Chico Vegan Meetup for a guided group tour of Animal Place on Saturday June 1, 2019. Afterwards we’ll enjoy a group potluck, talk about the animals we met, what we felt and learned, and how to do more good things for the animals. If you’ve never been to Animal Place, you’re in for a very special experience.

We’ll visit with some of the over 400 rescued farmed animals who call Animal Place home and learn about their history. Due to the virulent Newcastle Disease outbreak in southern California, the resident chickens, turkeys, and guinea fowl are quarantined for their safety and will not be accessible to the public.

The tour will last two hours and will entail a lot of walking on flat ground. The facility is wheelchair-accessible, although there are some rocky portions of the property.

You must wear long-pants and closed-toed shoes or boots (which Animal Place can provide). The property is shared with wildlife, including rattlesnakes. Closed-toed shoes also provide added protection when interacting directly with the large animals.

Children are welcome!

Visitor dogs are not permitted. This is for their safety and that of the animals. Please leave companion dogs at home.

The tour is free, but donations are gladly accepted.

Meet at the Chico Park and Ride at HWY 99 and HWY 32 (lot closest to 99) at 9:15 am. We will leave the park and ride by 9:30 am SHARP.
