To alleviate animal suffering by providing sanctuary from abuse, neglect, and homelessness;
To end the killing of healthy animals as a method of population control;
To teach that animals are intrinsically valuable, worthy of respect, compassion, and care.

Currently our efforts are focused on dogs, who live safe and free here while they recover physical health and emotional harmony. All are spayed or neutered, receive appropriate veterinary care, and excellent nutrition. No cages, no chains. They have 35 snugly fenced acres on which to run and play. They are occasionally separated in large shady enclosures as may seem prudent for the safety and comfort of both the newcomers and the old-timers — an adjustment period that is usually brief, since most dogs are so fond of other dogs.

As needed, they receive homeopathic and herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, and western medicines to address acute or chronic physical or behavioral symptoms. When they are ready, we help them to join new human families.

We are a No-Kill Sanctuary, and part of the No-Kill Movement growing in shelters and sanctuaries across this country. We regret deeply that we cannot take in every animal who needs help because we do not kill dogs to make space for other dogs. We see each dog through to adoption into a new family or to old age and death. We do euthanize for untreatable suffering.

Occasionally an unexpected condition such as cancer is revealed during the initial veterinary exam. Or a traumatized animal who functions joyfully in this "free" environment cannot adjust to the requirements of life as a "pet" and is considered "unadoptable." We do everything possible to help those animals achieve comfort and happiness and they live out their lives with us.

We chose the name Bridging the Worlds because we like the idea of a path that bridges the human and animal realms. A path to human/animal relationships of mutual respect, true communication, and mutual aid. Everyone who has ever loved an animal has crossed that bridge.
