My first visit to the Animal Sanctuary was about 2 years ago, when I dropped of a box of orphaned baby geese from the RI Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic. I've been involved in the field for 10 years and this sanctuary is by far the most beautiful, up-kept, and caring facility I have seen. Each animal, whether great or small is treated like a beloved family member with all the medical attention, patience, and tenderness you could imagine.
The grounds look straight out of a fairy tale book; with flower gardens, duck pond, hills, fields, and white paddock fences. Its one of my favorite places to visit in Rhode Island.
