Lily’s Place Animal Sanctuary

Lily's Place  is a small animal sanctuary that provides forever homes to a pack of furry friends (and soon, feathered and hooved friends too).

It all started when Tim and his 3 rescue dogs met Jamie and her 3 rescue dogs... it didn't take long for Tim and Jamie to form the canine version of the Brady Bunch!

Since that time, the 3 oldest members of the original canine Brady Bunch have passed peacefully over the rainbow bridge, a 3 legged member has joined the pack, and numerous foster dogs have bunked at Lily's Place before being placed in forever homes.

The adventure continues as Lily's Place gets ready to open its doors once again; this time to feathered and hooved friends. 

We’re in the final stages of expanding our small "dog only" sanctuary with the inclusion of “farm friends” - more specifically, we’re preparing for rescue chickens in September, as well as a pair homeless pot belly pigs and lambs this fall. ⁣

With the quickly looming deadlines, we’ve decided to do a few special fundraisers to raise the funds needed to propel the project along faster (so we can save lives sooner).  

This is one such fundraiser and focuses on the building costs for the housing needed.

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far - because of you, we were able to get started on the piggy and chicken shelter!

We'd like to finish that shelter and get the second one put ASAP as we now know "who" will be coming to us. We'll share their stories soon (but can't for privacy reasons at the moment).

If you’d like to help us expand Lily’s Place Animal Sanctuary, please consider donating - every donation makes a huge difference no matter how big or small!
