Trick or Treat Yo' Self to Some Fun This October at Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary

Camilo Díaz

Autumn in Massachusetts is genuinely one of life's great treats. The trees are filled with brilliant colors, and the weather is briefly (we hope anyways) not too hot and not too cold. One of the best things about this time is getting to enjoy all the spooky Halloween spins on already great establishments. Luckily for all the animal lovers out there, The Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary is no exception!

What is the Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary?

As the name would suggest, Winslow Farm is a sanctuary for animals. Founded by Debra White, Winslow Farm Animal Awareness is a non-profit charitable organization with the goal of providing rescue and care for animals in need. The farm, established in 1996, aims to do just that by taking in animals who either do not have a home or ones who were abused by their previous owners. Visitors to the farm can not only meet and interact with some of the over 200 animals that live there but can also join in various animal-related activities.

What is Special About Going in October?

As mentioned in the first paragraph, not to mention the title that most likely brought you to this article in the first place, October is a special time at Winslow Farm. In addition to impressing the animals with your elaborate costumes, you can expect to find engaging events like Halloween coloring, story time, themed photos, and sticker fun! You will also receive a Trick-or-Treat Goodie Bag! Guests are asked to please not share them with the animals. However, if you do want to help feed the animals something more nutritious, donation information can be found here.
