Spiritual Retreat for Pets (and Their People)

Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace. ~ Albert Schweitzer

What more do I need to say about WolfStone Ranch’s goal to create a spiritual retreat for pets (and their people) than what I already said on my Home page?

Best-selling author Marianne Williamson has said, “We must commit ourselves to incorporating the conditions that foster peace and serenity into our daily lives. So much inside of us can flourish when we turn off the worldly noise! The search for inner peace is a lifestyle decision.” Well, WolfStone Ranch’s spiritual retreat for pets (and their people) is my vision of how to do just that… it’s my idea of heaven on earth! It’s where and how I want to live. And beyond that, I want to share this peaceful, healing lifestyle with the rest of the world!

Because loneliness, anxiety and depression are rampant in our society, many people turn to their pets for much-needed companionship and comfort. But unfortunately, our pets are emotional sponges, soaking up and then acting out OUR emotional pain. Therefore, many emotionally wounded people and their equally troubled pets are in serious need of some deep healing. Not surprisingly, even during these economically difficult times, pet-related businesses are booming…

Therefore, I have outlined a complex of businesses that I hope the WolfStone Ranch Community will eventually be able to start… businesses that will share the environment that we will first create for ourselves and then expand to offer to others… an environment that supports healing for all living beings AND promotes compassionate treatment of all animals… while simultaneously generating profits that will help support our charitable work of rescuing, rehabilitating and adopting out our animals to appropriate homes.

For more on this, I’m going to send you to my old webpage… Read more...

Please Note

WolfStone Ranch is a small, exclusive facility. We are not a typical shelter open to the general public. We do not accept owner surrenders because we are simply not set up to be that kind of rescue operation. Instead, we are able to take in only a small number of “unadoptable” shelter animals in need of intensive rehabilitation. Once we are able to adopt out one of these animals, we are then able to pull another “unadoptable” animal from one of the local shelters so that they can take in more animals in dire need of rescue. With this in mind, we suggest that you contact the Farmington Pet Adoption Center if you need to relinquish an animal (be it your own pet or a stray you’ve picked up). Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
