NOTICE TO ALL VISITORS
All Tours & Visits to The Llama Sanctuary have been suspended due to unexpected relocation. The Llama Safari will return & the llamas will be hungry for your love ….and carrots!
Why Save Animals?
You might have noticed the huge increase in animal societies and rescue organizations. This is a direct result of an increasing compassion that is being felt by the people of this planet. This compassion is finding expression through such advocacies as cleaning garbage from the oceans and reducing our use of fossil fuels. This is just the very beginning of a tidal wave of awakening that is occurring, together with a realization that we SHARE this planet with other life forms that have as much right to live as we do. Having developed a passion for llamas and alpacas, life has directed us to provide a special home for those camelids who require assistance.
Why Make a Donation?
Not everyone is in a position to care for animals, nor perhaps have they the experience or inclination to do so. Donating is a way of sharing the burden of cleaning up the mess of human existence and caring for those we might have harmed along the way. The costs of running a large animal shelter are considerable and the hours required to manage all of the animals and all of the enquiries often stretch beyond the hours available. It is a passion that rises from the soul and often demands everything one has and more. We get down on our knees and beg for a penny here and a saving there to try and make ends meet. And we appreciate every word of encouragement and every penny that is offered.

The Search for a Forever Home
It is with great sadness, The Llama Sanctuary was forced to leave the beautiful park seen in these videos. The Sanctuary is temporarily located in Vernon, British Columbia and actively seeking parkland that the llamas can enjoy forever more. The Sanctuary continues to serve llamas throughout Canada, but is closed to the public at the present time.

Adopting vs Buying
Not all llamas require shearing. The majority of the llamas that come through The Llama Sanctuary are Ccara llamas, which have a coarse guard hair covering a soft under-down. If you are hoping to use fibre from a llama, then the ccara llama is not for you! Also, many of these animals have not been trained or have experienced some form of abuse or neglect and require time and handling to acheive trust and respect. If you require a well trained llama that produces beautiful fibre for spinning, we recommend that you buy from a respected fibre llama breeder.
Animal Welfare & the Law
Canada has a long way to go to reach standards of animal welfare found in other nations, but laws still apply and are improving each year. Where natural compassion and respect are absent or lacking in an animal keeper, then the law can force the keeper to provide proper care or force them to surrender the animal.
