Dreams Disabled R Elderly Animal Mountain Sanctuary

DREAMS, a final resting place for Disabled R Senior Animals. A home sanctuary in the hills of the central valley of Cali, for senior animals in need.

rescuing senior or disabled animals in need of care

DREAMS has been dedicated to saving seniors out of central valley shelters since 1998. Some seniors reaching us before getting to shelters when their owner passes away, or if senior & found on streets as stray. SO far DREAMS has been keeping things small due to limited income. With so many seniors in need after 15 years of being a private sanctuary we have started working on non profit status in California. Where when money permits we can rescue many senior or disabled animals in need. We are striving to be a hospice sanctuary for critical seniors in their last months. We have around 40 acres in the foothills of central California where our home sanctuary is located. We are a no cage, roam free home where the seniors are only crated when I am away in town a few hours, when needed.
