Happy Trails Animal Sanctuary Offering Educational Tours


Ravenna – Looking for something unique to do with family and friends to kick off your summer? Visit Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary, a very special organization located in Northeast Ohio where healing takes place for farm animals and horses rescued from abuse and neglect situations. Guests can connect with rescued animals up close and personal, and have the opportunity to experience the sanctuary. This is a hands on tour so be ready to give a pig a belly rub, pet a retired cockfighting rooster, hug a mini horse and play with the goats. Meet and pet the rescued horses including the retired Amish horses, and get to know them through their stories of rescue and recovery. Learn about the Amish Horse Retirement Program, the Farm Animal Visitation Program and other community outreach programs. Find about how you can make a difference and get involved in animal rescue.

Be sure to check out our facility renovations, property additions, and the progress that is taking place at the sanctuary. Happy Trails’ new animal education classes and other unique seminars and clinics are being offered this year at the new Education Center.  Help spread kindness and compassion for all animals.

The cost for the tour is  $ 20 per adult, $10 per youth ages 6-17, and kids ages 5 and under are free.  Happy Trails offers a money back guarantee — this will be the best $20 you’ve ever spent. If you don’t learn something new, pet an animal you’ve never touched before, aren’t amazed by the stories and history of the animals, tell us. We’ll give you your money back. Tours last about an hour and a half. And please know we appreciate your support. We want you to feel that your money is going to a really worthwhile cause as all proceeds go toward the medical expenses and daily care of the rescued animals.

Tours are offered May through October on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 11:00am; 12:45pm; 2:30pm and 4:15pm.  Pre-registration required. Groups may include up to six people. To register call 330-296-5914 or via the website at www.happytrailsfarm.org
