Carol Hine

SAINTS Founder

Animal welfare in Western society is gradually getting to a point where no homeless, adoptable, animals are killed. We humans are the voices that speak for them and we get to feel good about that.

But what happens to the unadoptables, and who speaks for them? Where is their value? Where is their right to life with compassionate and responsible care?

I started SAINTS as a means to provide respectful, responsible, and compassionate care to the unadoptables of all species. We provide a home to these deserving animal souls, while also helping human souls to grow when they come here and meet the animals and see their true value.

Our animals may be old, or sick, or injured, or disabled. They may require expensive medical care, or ongoing palliative or chronic care, be easy or difficult, pretty or homely, nice or grumpy. They may eventually find their own home, or they may stay with us for the rest of their time.

No matter their past, or how long they’re with us, when they come into the care of SAINTS they are each valued for who they are.

Humans bred them, bought and sold them, used them for whatever purpose they had. Animals have had no choice in that and, at these most vulnerable and helpless moments in their lives, they all have earned the right to respect and care. That is the core of our mission at SAINTS.

It has been a very long road, and there are many miles ahead, but with every unadoptable soul that we’re able to help, we are slowly getting there.
