Beautiful Together Sanctuary
specializing in cats & dogs
*space is extremely limited, consider volunteering!
"A major charter of this sanctuary is to also create ongoing programs for children in foster care, group homes and at-risk situations to visit the animals, help care for them and spend time in 'pet therapy' sessions: bottle feeding kittens, socializing puppies, brushing goats - and so much more."
Their mission: "To connect the vulnerable and the voiceless in purposeful ways that benefit us all."
