Our Rescue

TaraSun Animal Rescue Retreat has been helping animals in need since 1993 regardless of age, color, breed, size or species. Our focus began and continues with spay and neuter to help the over population of cats to reduce pain and suffering.
 
Over 99% of the tame stray and feral cats and dogs come still intact and sometimes already pregnant. We help animals who come to us after abandonment and when they are ill and/or injured. Most animals are weary from neglect and/or abuse and take much time and care to learn to trust again.
 
Each animal is fed a species-appropriate diet and we have been raw feeders since 1996. Extensive research and experience has shown that often times simply providing a safe and secure chemical free environment along with proper nutrition is all that is needed along with time, love and acceptance for an animal to reach his/her optimum level of wellness. TaraSun has assisted cats, dogs, chickens, birds, turkeys, goats, rabbits and horses. Especially during grim economic times, we have helped humans by taking in animals on a temporary basis while their humans relocate so to be able to care for their animals companions again. Relinquishment to a county shelter often means they will not be able to get their animal back. When a new special forever home is not found, we offer lifetime care and hospice when an animal is ready transition.
 
TaraSun is a committed no kill sanctuary but we do follow expert veterinary advice when the suffering is extensive and euthanasia is the humane action to take. We are a non profit 501(c)3 rescue sanctuary. TaraSun has no paid employees and all donations go directly to help the animals.
