    Welcome to the 3rd Annual Goat Games - Friday, August 12 through Monday, August 15 - hosted by Catskill Animal Sanctuary and sponsored in part by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS).  The Goat Games 2022 is YOUR chance to help rescued farmed animals across the country— by hiking, swimming, biking, kayaking, binge-watching Netflix, dancing or any activity of your choice– right where you live, work and play!

    In 2020, Catskill Animal Sanctuary created The Goat Games as a response to their urgent fundraising needs during COVID — and to give folks a taste of fun and athleticism in the wake of the canceled Olympics. The following year, they selected sanctuaries across the country to participate and the Games grew to a total of 10 teams, raising thousands of dollars to help save animals!

    This year, Catskill Animal Sanctuary is partnering with TWELVE other GFAS-certified farmed animal sanctuaries from coast to coast to increase awareness of all our life-saving work— and to have FUN! Simply pick a sanctuary, register as an athlete for their team, carry out your chosen activity, and ask your friends and family to donate to support you.

    Every dollar raised will go to saving lives and providing sanctuary for animals in need. It’s up to all of us to carry the torch and get the GOLD for farmed animals. Are you game?

    Everything you need to know about participating as an athlete on your favorite sanctuary’s team, or supporting a sanctuary as a donor, is right here in these FAQs.
