Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How far are you from my city?
A: We are located about an hour and a half from Orlando/Tampa and 45 minutes from Gainesville FL.
Q: Are young children allowed to come for tours?
A: Yes! Tours are a great chance for your whole family to get up close and personal with the rescued residents!
Q: Can I bring treats for the animals?
A: We want to give everyone a chance to meet animals face to face and for this reason we ask that treats not be given out during our guided tours
Q: I want to come on a day that isn’t a tour day. Can I just stop by and walk around?
A: For the health and safety of all the animals who call the sanctuary home we allow tours only on guided tour days. We do have three open house dates a year where you can come and walk yourself around!
Q: I need to give up my dog or cat, can you take them?
A: We are not a dog and cat shelter and do not take pets into the sanctuary. Please contact your local Humane Society for a list of dog and cat shelters in your area.
Q: I have a feral cat who would make the perfect barn cat, can you take him/her?
A: Due to the fact that we do have predators (coyotes, fox, bobcats etc) we do not take “barn cats”.
Q: I found/purchased/rescued a potbelly pig that I can not keep. Can he/she come to live at KSS?
A: We do not take potbelly pigs at this time.
Q: Can I adopt a farm animal from you and take them home?
A: We do not have an adoption program. Our residents will live out the rest of their lives at the sanctuary. If you are interested in adopting a farm animal we highly suggest you contact www.FarmSanctuary.org
Q: I have an RV or camping equipment, can I stay overnight at the sanctuary?
A: At this time we do not have the ability to accept overnight visitors, but we are hoping to change that in the near future!
