Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.

Frequently Asked Questions

Visit/Tour FAQs:

General FAQs:

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!

Work Party FAQs:

Q: Do I have to have a big group to volunteer?

A: Nope! You can come and meet new friends during your volunteer experience!


Q: Can our company/school/church set up a work day?

A: Yes we would love to schedule a time for your group to come out and volunteer! Please use the contact form to contact us about scheduling your groups day!
