One Heart Wild Education Sanctuary & ROOTS Institute

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 18 people are interested
One Heart Wild

The animal sanctuary has a few projects coming up that we are looking for support around.

We would like to create a trail around the property that can be used by our youth and adults for walking with our nonhuman animals during an equine experiential learning or therapy session and for kids to get out on during camps to experience nature.

This would be a great project for a group to do together or for people to independently work on as time permits.

We also have various fencing repair projects and some new fencing we would like to install to make things easier for our volunteers and safer for our animal residents.

Civic, military, corporate groups welcome as well as individuals.

About One Heart Wild Education Sanctuary & ROOTS Institute


12620 Willamette Meridian Road Northwest, SILVERDALE, WA 98383, US

Mission Statement

We exist to promote the health, well-being and welfare of humans, animals, and nature through mutually beneficial relationships. One Heart Wild Education Sanctuary envisions a community that inspires healing, kindness, and advocacy through empathic relationships with all life on earth. One Heart Wild is committed to recognizing the rights of all individuals to mutual respect; acceptance of others without biases based on differences or status of any kind, including but not limited to, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, or species.


The importance of the human-nonhuman animal connection is becoming widely understood. What began as casual observations--how aquariums can reduce blood pressure or how petting a dog can reduce anxiety in nursing homes--has grown into exciting scientific disciplines. Within mutually beneficial experiences, Animal Assisted Self Development & Psychotherapy has the capacity to improve social-emotional skills, emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and nonverbal communication.

Healing and growth is a two-way street at One Heart Wild. Here, animals, many with physical and emotional wounds created by traumatic experiences with humans, are carefully selected to meet our requirements--especially those governed by capacity limitations, quality of care standards & environmental impact. With time, understanding, and a stable social environment, the animals to which we provide sanctuary not only recover, but grow an increasing capacity to help heal our human community.

ROOTS Institute represents a scientific, and ethically sound paradigm shift in animal assisted self development/ psychotherapy training. ROOTS facilitators enable mutually beneficial social-emotional growth using tested principles of psychology, ethology, and neuroscience while meeting or exceeding the Animal Assisted Therapy in Counseling Competencies developed by the American Counseling Association & Animal Assisted Therapy in Mental Health Interest Network.
