THE SANCTUARY OF HOPE
Conservation. Preservation. Rehabilitation.
Guatemala is a country of rapidly declining natural resources and extreme poverty, resulting in abuse of resources, poaching & a steady illegal black market pet trade for profit.
The Sanctuary of Hope is devoted to the conservation, rehabilitation & protection of rescued abused and/or abandoned animals such as: dogs, cats, monkeys, foxes, raccoons, iguanas, cows, goats, horses, chickens, birds and sheep. It provides educational opportunities & focuses on reforestation and conservation of water and the protection of Guatemala’s natural resources. We have an on site animal sanctuary for rescued animals and a farm within walking distance where we grow crops and trees for our reforestation, empowerment and nutrition programs.
The Sanctuary of Hope is one of the few legally registered & veterinary attended animal rescue facilities in Guatemala. It provides education opportunities for the people to learn & respect the delicate balance and harmony between man and nature.
The Sanctuary also partners with the Centre of Hope, providing Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) for the Special Needs students & families.
