Indraloka Animal Sanctuary is named after the Sanskrit "heaven for the Gods", and is founded on two principles: 1) the earth herself and all life is sacred and 2) we are all related. Indraloka is a lifelong heaven on earth for animals that would otherwise be euthanized or slaughtered. We support rescue groups by giving safe sanctuary to animals they cannot place, and also rescue farm animals from cruelty. We purposefully take in old, injured, and sickly animals knowing they will end their earthly lives in our care, and view giving them a good death as a sacred act. Indraloka Animal Sanctuary seeks to educate the community, especially children, on ways in which we can better care for ourselves and the environment while helping animals in need. Our five core values inform every action that we take, every day: Reverence Mitakuye Oyasin (Lakota for "We are all related, we pray for all of our relatives") Joy Lovingkindness Mindfulness
We currently have 200+ animals in our care, including cows, sheep, cats, horses, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks, peafowl, geese, quails, mules, and turkeys. Many of these are elderly, have chronic medical conditions, or have other special needs.
