Ranch Tours @ Sale Ranch
Tour the ranch, meet the inspiring animal residents, and learn their stories of hope and survival. Come and experience the power of kindness and compassion for all, regardless of species. Sale Ranch Animal Sanctuary is located in beautiful Temecula Wine Country on 10 acres. The ranch is approximately 1 hour 20 minutes from San Diego and Orange County.
Home to rescued horses, pigs, cows, donkeys, goats, sheep, chickens, and turkeys, each resident began a life of uncertainty in an abusive and neglectful environment known as the modern food system. During your tour, you will see that they now spend their days basking in the sun, rolling in the dirt, and living a whole and peaceful life.
Docent-led Private Tours:
Walk the Sanctuary with a tour guide and learn about individuals calling the ranch home. During the 90-minute private tour, you will have an opportunity to interact, get up and close with select residents, and tour the Sale Ranch gardens that feed the animals seven days a week.
Private tours can accommodate up to six people in a group and are available for a donation of $225. Advanced bookings are required. To organize your experience, please email [email protected]. Private tour reservations are offered on Saturday mornings only from 10:00 to 11:30 am.

Our Public Ranch Tours are ticketed events and include a self-guided tour with volunteers available throughout the Sanctuary to provide information and answer questions.
