Our sanctuary animals are the heartbeat of Earthfire.

Coming to us through a variety of circumstances, our domesticated wildlife cannot survive in the wild. Some were kept as pets, some came from fur or meat farms, and others were surrendered to us. All of them are cared for throughout their lifetimes. Our animals serve as vibrant, evocative emissaries for their species and for species individuality, opening the door for all of us to see ourselves and nature through different eyes–eyes that recognize and embrace our interconnectedness with all of Earth’s ecosystems.

Visitors to Earthfire—whether through story-sharing newsletters, onsite retreats, private visits, or social media—are given the opportunity to connect with these wild beings heart-to-heart, reawakening an expanded understanding of community and our place within the web of all Life.
