A 501(c)3 non-profit animal sanctuary
To help keep our staff, visitors and volunteers safe from the Covid-19 virus, we are limiting access to our premises to those who provide essential functions during these difficult times. We will resume access to our visitors and volunteers once it is safe for normal social interaction.
We provide a safe, nurturing home for animals that have been neglected, abused and abandoned and have no other chance for adoption or fostering.
We care for older individuals, those with special health care needs, and those that just aren't very adoptable.
We encourage our visitors and volunteers to consider the ethical, environmental and health benefits of a plant based diet.
Queso came from a local shelter where he was too fearful and aggressive to place. After a few offers of treats and a few days in the small dog pack, his only aggression is competition with other dogs for toys.
Nippet, a senior Pekingnese, was found wandering in the extreme summer heat. She was covered in mats and feces, blinded by dry eye, suffering ear infections and hardly able to walk. After weeks of care and vet services she is sweet, feisty, and healthy, a testament to the transformative nature of love and kindness.
Aubergine was injured when very young, leaving her legs paralyzed. She lives upright in a little hammock and accompanies Eden on her animal care rounds. and spends some time in the grass where she can dig and forage with her beak. We offer her patience and care in memory of the billions of nameless birds that live short, tortured lives in factory farms.
Guinea Pig Pickle was surrendered by a family no longer able to care for her. She enjoys outdoor time with Bambi, who weighs about the same.
Peanut was turned in to a shelter, neglected and covered in fleas, She was surrendered because her owner didn't want her around her grandchildren. She is sweet and gentle.
In addition to our many dogs and cats, we care for farm animals, including equines, pigs, goats, sheep, chickens and ducks and rabbits.
We provide opportunities for local high school and college students to provide care and companionship to abandoned pets and farm animals
We maintain 20 acres of wildlife refuge in the old growth wetland adjacent to the Twelve Mile Swamp Conservation Area.
We have spacious, secure quarters that keep our rescue animals (and the local wildlife) safe.
If you are as passionate about the well-being of animals as we are, please help by donating money and/or time with us and our animals.
Veterinary costs are our biggest expense. Bella's tooth abscess ruptured out of her cheek. Emergency dental extraction and antibiotics were required ($$$).
While the pandemic has eliminated our principal sources of income (events and tours), our animals still need food, shelter and veterinary care. We continue to take in abandoned , abused and neglected animals that have no other chance for a safe, comfortable life. Since the pandemic began, we have taken in dogs, cats, ducks, and chickens, pushing the limit of our capacity and resources, and have found other placements for animals we could not help directly . More than ever, we depend on the generosity of individual donors.
Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! As we reopen, we will be looking for volunteers and will provide tours of our sanctuary for prospective volunteers and for others who wish to support our activities. Email us at email@example.com
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or by letting others know what we do, thank you. We can't continue to care for these animals without the help of supporters like you.
