Welcome to Journey's End!

What We Do

Florence with the dogs on the front patio

Journey's End Animal Sanctuary provides lifetime care and shelter for dogs, cats, horses, pigs, sheep, and birds that have been abused, neglected or have special needs. Rather than emphasizing adoption, Journey's End provides a homelike setting where animals can enjoy the remainder of their lives in a comfortable, loving atmosphere.

Our 2018 Calendars are here!

2018 Calendar cover

Our 2018 Journey's End calendars are here, with new photos and captions of our own animals. The calendars are large size (8.5" x 11"), and are printed on glossy, high-quality paper. Available now in our online Online Store.

Our Year End Newsletter

Tres, our new 3-legged orange cat

In our latest Newsletter, our new cat Tres still has his sweet
personality despite having to have his injured leg amputated; our
new pig Pygmalion is enjoying his large pen here after living in a
crate at his previous home; and meet our founder, Florence Thuot,
as she approaches her 90th birthday!

And please visit our Newsletters page to see
any past issues of our newsletter.

Please check our page for updates and photos on our animals' current medical needs, and if you are able to help, we appreciate it very much!
