Founded in 1996 by Terry Cummings and Dave Hoerauf, Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary is a 400 acre non-profit dedicated to the care of deserted and mistreated farm animals and wildlife. The sanctuary has over 200 rescued animals including horses, mules, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits, turkeys and a peacock.
Join Obscura Society DC and field agent Julie Seigel for an exclusive tour of Poplar Spring, where guests will visit and interact with these adorable creatures; from Bella the Lionhead Rabbit to Irwin the Wooly/Hereford cross pig, each animal has a story to tell. The tour will conclude with a picnic of vegan treats supplied by Sticky Fingers Sweets and Eats. Be careful, you may make a new friend or two!
