Welcome to Spring Farm CARES

Spring Farm CARES is an Animal and Nature Sanctuary located in the scenic Mohawk Valley of Central New York. We are home to an average of 250-300 animals including horses, donkeys, goats, dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and poultry. We also have a Nature Sanctuary of over 250 acres of forest, wetland, and grassland with several miles of trails open by appointment and for tours. We are also home to Animal Communicator/Spiritual Intuitive Dawn Hayman. Please browse the many aspects of the farm, including learning more about our animal residents and our programs, by clicking the links to the left. You are also always welcome to visit in person. We would love to show you around the farm and introduce you to the many wonderful animal residents. Visits and Tours can be scheduled by appointment so that we are sure to have someone available to show you around.

Come Find the Peace Waiting for You

In this 2-minute film, film maker Joshua Ives shares what peace and meaning he found at Spring Farm CARES. This short film captures the heart of Spring Farm CARES and the animal teachers who share their lives and messages with us. We invite you to come for a tour - reconnect to your heart and nature when you take a workshop with Dawn Hayman, walk through our gardens and Nature Sanctuary, read to our cats - and find your own piece of inner peace that the farm has to offer to you.


We thank Joshua Ives for his beautiful film and letting us share it with you. For more information on his work, go to www.joshua-ives.com
