Some words from our volunteers about their experiences at the Indraloka Animal Sanctuary.
“These animals are the reason we created the sanctuary. We set out to save them, but in the end their love and remarkable ability to teach and heal have inspired growth in all of us, too.”
"This place in not just a sanctuary for the animals we take in, but I believe it is also a sanctuary for us humans who choose to spend time there. It is…a place to form life-long friendships with various beings, human and non.”
“All I can say is that since I’ve started volunteering [here], I have found a patience within myself that I didn't know existed. It's helped me become a better, more understanding person towards the humans in my life…I have definitely stopped to appreciate my life [more]…because the sanctuary is a part of it.”
“It is all so magical. It warms my heart to be able to help these beautiful beings. I also receive renewed hope in the human species because of all of the wonderful work and compassion the volunteers bring to the sanctuary”
“The Sanctuary has [made] me a better version of me. Since I began volunteering at [the sanctuary], I have become more confident, my relationships are stronger, I have learned to live life with love and gratitude, and I have more respect for all living beings … Indraloka Animal Sanctuary is my Heaven on Earth.”
