Go Wild at These Animal Sanctuaries in Sonoma County

Need a pick-me-up? These nonprofits offer ways to spend time with cute animals — you could even try some goat yoga or sheep meditation!

Sonoma County may be a dream destination for wine lovers but there are many ways to enjoy the good life here, beyond the tasting rooms.

A select few of these animal sanctuaries offer a chance to visit, learn and make a difference — some even host yoga sessions with goats and “sheep meditation.” Click through the above gallery for all the details.
