1998 – Sara’s Sanctuary was created in loving memory of an incredible dog named Sara. It was because of her exceptional love of other animals that the Sanctuary was named in memory of her.
Sara’s Sanctuary is a place where animals are given a second chance at life, a place of hope for animals that in many cases these animals are not given that extra mile. For over seventeen years now, the Sanctuary has been a haven for countless, though never nameless’ animals.
Sara’s Sanctuary is a true sanctuary in every sense. The animals that find their way to our doors, are able to live out the rest of their lives with everything they need. They get the love they ask for, the best diet available, and are kept in enclosures not cages. Animals rarely leave our facility and are only relocated if another home can better accommodate their needs. The care they are given here, is a lifetime commitment. These animals had few options for survival if we had not taken them in. Our family of animals has come from all over the U.S. ,with the majority coming from the Puget Sound region.
Sara’s Sanctuary began because I believe that all animals deserve “an unconditional chance at life, and love from us if they so choose it”. For too many years mankind has bred exotic, domestic and even wildlife for human pleasure and financial gain, without any regard for their well-being. I believe we need to take responsibility for the situations we have created for these animals. To me, this means the commitment of love and care that all animals deserve – from the very expensive exotic, to a simple wounded dove, even the much dreaded little starling. I believe all creatures have the same heart and soul, and feel the same pain, no matter what price that they have been purchased for. I believe that all animals deserve our love, understanding, and care to the best of our ability. I know this is what I was meant to do. This is my time, my gift to these wonderful creatures that are in desperate need of our help.
For the Love of Animals,
