Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the Sammamish Animal Sanctuary with our sweet group of mama and baby friends. I can't believe we haven't visited sooner! We saw alpacas, llamas, cows, dogs, donkeys, horses, pigs, ponies, sheep and bunnies. You can feed most of the animals and even get in the enclosures. We brought veggies from home to feed the animals. Our group of toddlers especially loved the bunnies and goats. It's a great outing for a wide variety of ages. Our group of 20 month olds had so much fun, but honestly I think us mamas enjoyed it the most. There is no set admission to get in, but there is a bin for a cash donation, which helps with the costs of running the sanctuary. The volunteers there are friendly, informative and we enjoyed having them show us around the sanctuary.
"Second Chance Ranch is located in the heart of Sammamish, Washington. It is the home of the animals of Sammamish Animal Sanctuary; a non-profit place where where animals that need a home are cared for and loved by many as they live out their lives. Many of these animals have come from abusive and seemingly, hopeless situations. When an animal finds it’s way here, we first address any medical needs they may have. Then, we give them the love and attention they deserve and in time, they become trusting, friendly and happy pets that welcome all our daily visitors. This farm and the many friendly animals that live here, are so fun and amazing we just have to share them! We don’t just allow visitors, we encourage them to come and enjoy the peacefulness of the farm. Visitors are greeted by dogs, goats, donkeys and horses. Kids and adults alike will find something inspiring at the farm, so leave your troubles at the gate and come share in the life of our rescued pets!"
They are located at: 20727 SE 24th St, Sammamish WA 98075
Their hours are: Spring/Summer: Open Daily, 9:00 am to 7:00 pm
Large groups (10+) are asked to contact them to coordinate.
We'll for sure be visiting again! I hope you give this adorable place a visit.
Don't forget your cash donation and some veggies for the animals!
