Rooterville Animal Sanctuary

Get away and spend a day in the beautiful country side, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of life. Rooterville is an amazing experience if you love animals and nature. Once you enter the gates of our magnificent property, you will be greeted by animals who are always happy to meet new folks. Our butterfly gardens will awe and delight you as they hum with busy bees, butterflies and pollinators. We have 2 hives of bees that you can take a peak in through windows as well! There is fun for everyone. You will be smiling from the moment you walk through the gate!
You'll enjoy meeting all of our animals: Tinsel the cow, rescued from the "dead pile" at a livestock auction, LOVES bananas -- peel and all! Rooterville does not keep the animals fenced off from visitors, most are free to roam wherever they choose, so be ready to give some belly rubs! We give you the opportunity to interact with animals in a way that you probably never have before. Here, you can pet pigs, hold chickens, and give delicious, healthy snacks to all of our animals. They love apples, carrots, and celery sticks!
After your hour long tour, feel free to browse our our gift shop and spend some time in our "people barn," which overlooks the sanctuary. Its a cool screened-in barn area and there is an outside shady tented sitting area, plus a play area for kids! Rooterville is a place like no other. It is a unique, magical place that will give you an experience you will talk about for a long time and don't forget to take many great pictures to share with your friends! Don't forget to browse our etsy store for great jewelry and gifts with meaning! All proceeds help care for the animals, not line corporate fat cats pockets!
What would be even more amazing is to have a party, meeting or event here! Yes, we rent our beautiful facility for parties and events, your friends, family or staff will be delighted to share your special day with you here!
Tours are by appointment only, please schedule your visit or event online at our website or give us a call! We can't wait to meet you!
