Blazing Saddles is a unique animal sanctuary operation located in the coastal town of Fairhaven, MA owned by Keri Wilson and her family!
Blazing Saddles was born out of the love Keri has for animals of all kinds. To support the cost of the animals - Keri created event entertainment involving animals and educational programs with hopes the local community would build a deeper love and connection to animals and nature.
Blazing Saddles, now Little Patch of Heaven Sanctuary 501(c)(c3) pending, is dedicated to giving all animals a beautiful life! To make lasting and widespread change, Blazing Saddles is also passionate about bringing farm and exotic animal care, knowledge and interaction to their community.
We rescue and rehabilitate animals all year long!
We are fully insured!
We are registered with the USDA!
We now work alongside with the MSPCA & Fairhaven Animal Shelter to follow the best code of care for animals and to also attempt to house those in need of care!
We are equipped for certain exotic animals.
