Sara’s Sanctuary operates 100% with an all-volunteer staff and NO administrative salaries or paid directors. When you donate, you can be sure that 100% of the money you give will go directly towards one of the following:
- Veterinary expenses, medical care, health maintenance
- Feed – e.g. fresh food, meat for the carnivores, exotic bird seed and pellets
- Animal enclosures - maintenance & repairs
- Utility costs (approaches $2,000 per month during the winter months)
We run on a very tight budget, and unfortunately, with the state of the economy, donations have been down. Even a $10 donation can make a difference!
Since the inception of its 501(c)3 corporation status in December of 2000, Sara’s Sanctuary has been a place of refuge for hundreds of animals with no other options. We provide the care needed to allow these animals to thrive in a secure and loving environment for the rest of their lives.
Sara’s Sanctuary survives solely by the goodness and generosity of people who truly love animals, who believe in what we do and who are willing to financially support our cause. It is very expensive to provide the quality medical care, food and appropriate housing needed for each of the animals that has come to live here at the Sanctuary. Many of the animals arrive here in desperate condition and need a lifetime of medical assistance and constant therapy.
Our vision goes beyond the obvious tasks of rescuing and caring for animals. We continue our mission to educate the public about animal neglect and abuse and its prevention. Our hope is to help reduce the large number of animals left in distressful situations.
Continued public support is essential for us to continue to provide for the many abused and disabled animals that find their way to Sara’s Sanctuary each year.
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer!
