First name / Friend,, when we speak of kindness and compassion to all living beings, we speak to the transformational quality of caring for one another. Every selfless act, no matter how seemingly small, carries a vibration with it; an energy that expands instead of contracts. Nowhere is that more evident than within our own hearts. When we truly CARE and seek to make a difference, the heart breathes as if with lungs and opens to hold and give more love.
We care for you, dear friends. No matter how close or how far away, we stand united with you in creating a better world for all. Together, we got this…one kind act, one smile, one moment of grace at a time.
Friends, we got you covered!
SENIOR PAW PROJECT
Enjoying the love and companionship of a pet is a gift at any age which is why the sanctuary is committed to helping older Americans keep and care for their animals. To honor and support this special bond, our Senior Paw Project provides critically needed pet food, veterinary care assistance and foster/respite care to senior pet owners. Together, we're caring for each other…one animal and person at a time.
When Food = Love: Maintaining a healthy weight for your pet
Who doesn't love to spoil their animals with a few treats and snacks? Unfortunately, too much of a good thing can lead to overweight or obese dogs and cats. Check out our latest blog post from Dr. Emily Andersenon quick tips to keep your beloved pets healthy and happy.
Human activities leave behind materials like pesticides, pet waste, trash and even loose soil that can wash into our waters and pollute them. Even streets, ditches and underground storm sewers can carry polluted runoff into the closest waterbody. The good news is that a few actions go a long way in keeping water clean for humans, animals and the environment:
Return used motor oil for recycling. NEVER pour oil onto the street or down a storm drain.
Use a commercial car wash or wash your car on the lawn to keep dirty, soapy water from flowing into storm drains and eventually into local streams and lakes.
Sweep sidewalks and driveways instead of hosing yard debris off hard surfaces.
Fight mud by covering areas of bare soil with mulch, or plant grass or ground covers. Fine soil particles, or sediment, can suffocate fish and destroy their habitat.
Avoid using lawn fertilizers that contain phosphorus
Leave an unmowed buffer next to streams and lakes to filter pollutants carried by storm runoff. A buffer of native plants benefits wildlife and beautifies your backyard.
Flush responsibly and dispose of cleansers, beauty products, medicine, auto fluids, paint, and lawn care products at a local household hazardous waste facility.

May we raise children who love the unloved things -
the dandelion, the worms & spiderlings.
Children who sense the rose needs the thorn
& run into rain swept days the same way they turn towards sun...
And when they're grown & someone has to speak for those who have no voice
