Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary (WFAS) is a shelter that provides care, rehabilitation, and sanctuary for neglected, abused and discarded farm animals. Our purpose is to promote farm animal welfare and educate the public about how animals are treated to become our food.
Surrounded by the Catskill Mountains in the famous town of Woodstock, New York, WFAS takes in "food-production animals" such as cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, sheep, and goats. Most are rescued from the neglect and abuses of factory farms, stockyards and slaughterhouses. WFAS is a place where people can come face to face with these animals that most only know as "dinner" and learn about the devastating effects of modern-day agribusiness on the animals, the environment and our health.
