This peaceful sanctuary gives both unwanted farm animals and injured wild ducks and wild turkeys a fresh start. Organized by a DEM permitted wildlife rehabilitator, West Place has a constant influx of waterfowl and Eastern American wild turkeys, providing food, shelter, care and necessary medical attention. The animals are also utilized to educate the public, by appearing at festivals and Easter Egg hunts around the area. Animals of the sanctuary have been featured in various newspapers and the RI Bar Journal.
