SOS - Save Our Animal Sanctuary

We are a church sponsored animal sanctuary where  elderly, abused, and handicapped animals come to live out the remainder of their lives surrounded by God's love and compassion.

2012- When Blaze arrived emaciated at age 29:

For over 13 years,  Southwind Ranch Animal Sanctuary has lovingly cared for domestic horses, donkeys, dogs, cats and birds on our 10 acre sanctuary. We are a non-profit ministry of His Living Light Church.

2018 - Blaze at age 35 at his proper weight:

Since 2014, we have been fighting to save our land from an unwarranted and immoral attack by the IRS. At this point, we've exhausted all available resources and donations and are in peril of losing  the animal sanctuary and animal cemetary. There is no place for these beloved animals to live out the remainder of their lives if we can't pay necessary legal costs for the May 2018 trial.

Our small church congregation, volunteers, and caring donors over the years have struggled to get us this far while making sure all the animals receive the best care possible without interruption.  

We desperately need $50,000 by the end of April 2018 to pay for our legal costs. Please consider helping us  Save Our Sanctuary.
