The Black Sheep Retreat is a non-profit Animal Sanctuary located just outside Cancun, Mexico. Founded by Mandy Vara after coming to Mexico to work as a dive instructor, her goal is to rescue as many animals as possible while providing a high-quality standard of animal care.
With only eight farm animal sanctuaries in the entire country of Mexico, we aim to give a much-needed home to an array of species rescued from slaughter or abusive and exploitative situations. We also aim to give a peaceful space for people to come and enjoy time in nature, surrounded by safe and happy animals, something different than what we experience in our everyday world.
Black Sheep Retreat currently sits on 6.7 acres of Jungle land, although if I was able to grow in the future, there is land on both sides of the property currently for sale. The number of animals I will be able to rescue will depend on a range of things, including the species of animals and the amount of financial support we gain.
This trip is limited to 4 people maximum so not to disturb the animals includes and meet and greet with the animals, a delicious vegan lunch and some relaxing jungle time.
The price of this trip includes a $25 donation.
