Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary: Phase One!

12348110_10206348214116618_2526632748151938020_nPhase 1 of our Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary goal is COMPLETE! Now watch us GROW!

December 18th was settlement day for the 5.5 acre site near Chesapeake College. We are so very grateful for all who are helping make our dream of becoming Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary a reality. We want to publicly thank Scott Saunders, who has been our Sanctuary project manager and has driven this entire process; and the Wentzels, without whom we would not have realized this dream as soon!

Over the next two months, we will be working to repair the farmhouse to transform it into our interim office and adoption center until the new facility is built. We will need YOUR help and support to get this done; including volunteers to help us with labor and donations of items needed for repairs. Work started on the farmhouse with our New Year’s Weekend Fix Up, but there is still a lot of work left to be done. We will update this post with needed items and work events; for now, our Sanctuary wish list includes:


  • Building materials:
    • 6 (4’x8′) sheets of 3/8″ cement fiber board
    • linoleum flooring
    • drywall
    • screen doors
    • insulation
    • paint and painting supplies
    • interior trim
  • Pet Screening for Windows
  • Kitchen cabinets
  • Revolution flea treatment for cats and dogs
  • laundry detergent
  • dryer sheets
  • a floor cleaning machine
  • lamps
  • light bulbs
  • household supplies (toilet paper, basic tools, etc.)
Reaching settlement was only phase 1 of our Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary project. Our long-term goal is to build a brand-new state of the art animal adoption center and home. To support our Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary initiative, please click on the “DONATE” button to the right:
