Most of the residents of Sara’s Sanctuary were abused, neglected, or illegally owned. The vast majority of our animals were someone’s “pet” and were confiscated by law enforcement officials. Over the years we have rescued hundreds of animals and each one has it’s own sad story; we wish each could tell you each and every story. This is just a small peek at some of their stories from what we know. Please consider sponsoring one of the many wonderful creatures that have come to call Sara’s their home. Your sponsorship would help in so many ways: fresh food, consistent medical care and keeping each of their individual homes in good repair, weatherproofed and comfortable.
You can help just one animal in need, even if you already have a full house. Join our “sponsor an animal” program. For just $25.00 a month, you can contribute to one of the Sanctuary’s life- long residents. This donation will go such a long way towards the feed and medical care for one deserving animal. It also makes a great gift for that special animal lover who has everything.
It takes approximately $75,000 per year to feed, house, and provide medical care for all the animals that we provide a lifetime home for. Every dollar raised is used strictly for the direct care and maintenance of the animals. Unlike most rescues, Sara’s Sanctuary - has No paid staff, No paid directors, and No administrative fees. All those who work at Sara’s Sanctuary do so on a purely voluntary basis.
Every time a new animal comes into the Sanctuary, we assess its physical health and decide if it requires medical/veterinarian care.
Although not all of the animals that come to the sanctuary live long lives, they are all given the best care possible for the length of time they have left. Those who meet and care for them, even if only for a short time, are touched.
The Sanctuary was founded on the belief that “all animals” are worthy of our care. That care means it’s our responsibility for their safety, well-being, and quality of life they deserve.
