Rescued Animals not only need physical sanctuary, they require trauma-informed care and healing.
The Kerulos Center’s School for Trauma-informed Care for Animals will be located at our Oregon Sanctuary. This will be the first School of its kind where learners in our Animal Care Professional Certification Programs are trained in principles of trans-species psychology and trauma-informed care with practical application in service to individual sanctuary residents. Graduates of our programs will staff rescue centers, shelters, veterinary clinics, educational institutions, and sanctuaries including our All Bull Elephants’ Sanctuary (ABES).
In addition, the School will host International Conferences and Workshops that bring together people from around the world to share experience and expertise for the purpose of building a supportive community in service to Animals. Existing improvements on the property are ideal for classrooms, conference facilities, and guest lodging.
By translating our research on Elephant PTSD into practical training, the Kerulos School for Trauma-informed Care for Animals fulfills a core component of rescue and healing for all Animals exploited by the food, fashion, experimentation, and entertainment industries.
