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 latest newsletter is here!

Daisy and Hope play tug-of-war

In our latest newsletter, our new puppies Daisy, who was paralyzed by an injury, and Hope, who was born with deformed hind legs, become best friends as they await their doggy wheelchairs. See a tour of our Cat House, where most of our 100+ cats live, and meet some of our new residents who desperately needed a home. And new photos too!

Please visit our Newsletters page to see any back issues of our newsletters.

Help keep us going!

We realize times are hard for many, and Journey's End is no exception. Our expenses are high and ongoing, and the sanctuary has been especially struggling in recent months; in addition, this is the time of year when donations begin to taper off, which continues throughout the summer. While we dream of someday becoming financially secure, that is not a dream that has been realized.

But Journey's End also began as a dream, and your generous support enabled the sanctuary to grow from a dream into reality. As a result, you have transformed and saved the lives of thousands of animals in desperate need. You are the only reason Journey's End has been able to remain open all these years. Our unique mission is to provide safe haven in a loving home environment for unadoptable animals, and this is possible only through your donations. Without you, we would be forced to close our doors.

Please know you have our most heartfelt gratitude for everything you have given and for whatever you are able to give now to help us continue to lovingly serve the animals of Journey's End. If you would like to donate, please click the Donate button above, or go to our GoFundMe page to donate directly to our veterinary expense fund.
