We are kicking off our #GivingTuesday Campaign on November 27th.  We are using the contributions to give more dogs a NEW LEASH ON LIFE!  Our kennel is currently in dire need of major repair.  We are working on remodeling so that we can offer better living conditions that would reduce stress and promote health for our pups. 

We’ve raised enough money to renovate half of the kennel.  This decreases the number of dogs we can house by 30, leading to 360 unsaved lives annually. 

So help us give dog’s like Reggie new leash on life by contributing to our Giving Tuesday Campaign. 


Animal Care Sanctuary is able to provide extended care for our animals that need a little more time and attention. There are still many waiting in the kennel for their new furever home, but we would also like to highlight some of the dogs who have already been given their New Leash On Life.

Chrissy has shown me the unbridled power of love and patience, which have completely transformed this dog as well as myself. She’s more trusting and relaxed than I could have ever envisioned her becoming. To her core, she is a wild and fiery hunter, but her divine feminine gentle energy towards those she loves only expands with every day. I have learned to not impose my human values and anthropomorphism upon her but instead, embrace her for the dynamic animal that she is. I’m grateful for all the lessons she’s taught me and the person she’s shaped me to become. Nothing brings me more joy in this world than seeing her happiness. I hope everyone is able to unlock the part of their soul that is experienced through a partnership based on mutual love and devotion, regardless of species. I’m so grateful to Animal Care Sanctuary for never giving up on Chrissy and giving her so much love.
