15 Sonoma Animal Farms, Petting Zoos and Wildlife Preserves for Springtime Fun

Calling all animal lovers! Spring is arriving, and so is your opportunity to take your kids (or any animal-lover) on an outing to one of Sonoma County’s many farms, petting zoos, preserves, and animal shelters. From safari tours to tropical fish stores, Sonoma County has something for everyone who wants to get up close and personal with a furry, feline, feathered or finned friend – you can even pair animal socializing with some wine tasting! Click through the gallery above for a few of our favorite animal spots.

Please note: Many animal farms, sanctuaries and petting zoos have seasonal hours or are only open by appointment, so be sure to check their website before going. Did we miss your favorite petting zoo, farm or animal experience in Sonoma County? Please let us know in the comments.
