We are expanding our Oregon sanctuary with the purchase of forty-three more acres. With a total of 75 acres and its existing structures, we will be able to provide lifetime care for many more farmed and companion Animals in desperate need of rescue from the food, fashion, experimentation, and entertainment industries.
The expansion will also enable the establishment of The Kerulos School of Trauma-informed Care for Animals. This will be the first school of its kind where learners in our Animal Care Professional Certification Programs are trained in principles of trauma-informed care with practical application in service to individual sanctuary residents. Curricula, designed and taught by experts from a variety of fields, will be evidence-based and infused with somatic and contemplative studies. Graduates will staff rescue centers, shelters, veterinary clinics, educational institutions, and sanctuaries, including our All Bull Elephant Sanctuary (ABES). The space and care necessary to support physical and psychological healing and wellness are guided by The 10 Principles of Being Sanctuary, a trauma-informed approach to care.
Please donate today, your support will save lives and bring peace to some very special individuals.
