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.

The Jackie Oen Fund for Animals

Jackie Oen

Journey's End is honored to be the recipient of funds from the Jackie Oen Fund for Animals. Jackie was a lifelong animal lover who rescued many animals over the years, including domesticated animals, farm animals, and wildlife. She was deeply moved by the work she saw at Journey's End and fell in love with the animals she met here. One of her final wishes was to help raise funds for repairs to our Cat House.

Our Newsletter

In our latest newsletter, our playful new resident, Pops, tells his story of starting over in his new home after rescue from a difficult life. (He has us all charmed with his playfulness...he seems to think he's a puppy!) Also, a tribute to our blind and disabled animals, and summertime updates and photos. And be sure to visit our Newsletters page if you missed any back issues.
