Who Are We?
We are passionate about educating children and adults on the care and maintenance of domestic animals. We feel that if we teach how to properly care for pets, the number of incidents of neglect, abuse and injuries to animals will be reduced. The Sanctuary also rehabilitates animals in our care that have come from abusive or neglectful situations. We gently guide them to become well mannered and loyal pets. Our sanctuary program consists of housing animals in a clean, spacious environment, tailored to each animalÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs specific needs. We provide diets that meet high nutritional standards, accompanied by the best medical care available. In addition, we practice preventative medicine on a daily basis, which is an important part of our program. Our organization has large and small veterinarians and other animal professionals on our advisory board to ensure that the animals will truly have a happy ending.Our Horse Helpers program was inspired by our mutual passion for horses, and by shared desire to improve the lives of children. Happy Endings Animal Sanctuary and American Charities Foundation have collaborated to provide an innovative equine program using rescued horses in need of a second chance to engage at-risk youth.
We are passionate about educating children and adults on the care and respect for all animals. To provide refuge to animals that would otherwise be euthanized and to remove those who are in neglectful or abusive situations. Here they will be provided with the best nutrition, housing and love. Having room to roam and play, interact and socialize with other animals, the sanctuary gives a second chance to animals that would have no hope of a decent life, instilling trust in their hearts, so they may feel safe and loved.
