Residents of The Llama Sanctuary

by | May 12, 2021

The number of resident llamas and alpacas varies from week to week, sometimes day to day!  Many have come to The Sanctuary to retire, too frail to undergo yet another re-homing transition.  Some come to The Llama Sanctuary due to illness or injury or because or behavioural challenges.  And then others are here just for fun, to keep the spirit high and the llama games alive!

Everyone who visits The Sanctuary comes away with a favourite: the cheeky one, the noble one, the friendly one, the sad one, the crippled one or the naughty one.  Who’s your favourite?
