Wishing Well Sanctuary Mission, Vision, and Values

Wishing Well Sanctuary is undergoing a strategic realignment in order to ensure that, going forward, we remain true to our mission, vision, and values. We will continue to ensure that our animal family receives excellent care and we will focus on our mission to promote mental health and well-being for children, youth, their families and caregivers; we will be extending sanctuary to those affected by trauma, addiction and other difficulties, by providing courses, seminars, and workshops.

We will continue to provide a safe haven for abused and neglected animals, to promote care and respect for all beings through humane education, and to foster personal and community responsibility to alleviate suffering. We also remain committed to promoting greater awareness of our relationship with, and impact on, the environment, by providing programs that encourage responsible stewardship of our planet.

During our review process, we have come to the understanding that a realignment of priorities is necessary in regards to board composition, governance, strategic staff skill set, and allocation of priorities. While complex and challenging, Wishing Well Sanctuary is well on the path to embracing these structural changes and solutions.

Now in our eighth year, we look forward to broadening the scope of our programs to include even greater community enrichment. We hope you will join us as we move forward and continue serving the people that reach out to us, the animals in our care, and those that support us in so doing.

With gratitude for your unwavering support,

WWS Board of Directors
