As a leading non-profit 501(c) 3 organization, Denkai Animal Sanctuary has provided
rescue, rehabilitation and, if indicated, permanent sanctuary to over 500 animals since its
inception in 2004. The Sanctuary is unique in that, in addition to providing services to
animals in need, it provides hands-on educational animal husbandry opportunities to
at-risk youth. The bonds we have seen form between our youth and animals have been
both inspirational and, without a doubt, beneficial for both. Educational
programs for youth that unite environmental awareness with compassion for animals
are currently being developed by our Board of Directors and an extended committee.
This multi-pronged mission positions Denkai Animal Sanctuary to become a leading and
innovative facility in Colorado and Wyoming


We promote healthy environments in which people and animals interact and connect through applied, environmental, and educational programs to cultivate mental and physical health.


Denkai Animal Sanctuary has truly come a long way since it began with 25 animals on 15 acres with minimal facilities and a few volunteers in May of 2004. Three years later, our Sanctuary is now located on 180 acres, caring for over 100 animals with over 500 active volunteers and a support network of more than 10,000 people.
