Living One

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.

Our mission:

Inspire radical change in human culture by translating the understanding of Animal sentience into practices and ethics of nonviolence.

Our Work

How we become who Animals need us to be.

Beginning with the discovery of Elephant PTSD by founder Gay Bradshaw, Kerulos has produced nearly two decades of research to form the scientific architecture of Animal rights and self-determination. Kerulos’ central goal now is translating this understanding of Animals as fully sentient beings into practice. Our education and sanctuary programs help bring human lives and values into alignment with Nature.

We provide trauma-informed care for Animals in need and train students and rescue, medical, shelter, and other professionals in principles of trans-species psychology and trauma recovery.
