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.

A Special Message from Florence

At this time of year, donations tend to be sparse, and we typically find ourselves struggling financially. This year is proving to be no exception. We know that our cherished supporters understand the unique nature of our rescue work, dedicated to "unadoptable" animals with special needs. Even at nearly full physical capacity, there are occasions when we cannot in good conscience say no to a special needs animal. When we accept an animal, we pledge to provide them quality medical care for life. With the high cost of veterinary needs, in addition to our fixed expenses like food, we sometimes find ourselves with extra expenses to pay, even having to postpone payments. This is one such time.

Your donations are always appreciated beyond our ability to express our thanks. They are especially needed now, and we are appealing for your help. Donations can be made here at our website or GoFundMe page (https://www.gofundme.com/journeysendmedical). Gift cards for Tractor Supply, where we obtain most of our animals' food, are also very appreciated.

If you prefer, donations may be made towards our account directly to the providers listed below. Thank you, as always, from our most grateful hearts.
