Whisper's Sanctuary

Located in the beautiful Canelo Hills of Southern Arizona, Whisper’s Sanctuary is a 501c3 nonprofit permanent home for animals in need. Current residents include horses, donkeys, mules, geese, cats and one goat. Begun in 2005, the Sanctuary is now home to over 40 animals who were unwanted, previously abused/neglected, or retired from public service. We greatly appreciate your support. Please consider visiting and experiencing the beauty of the Sanctuary and the peaceful presence of the residents.

Motivated by witnessing the misfortunes of abused animals, and the uncertain plight of horses sent to auction, we are dedicated to offering an alternative solution for unwanted animals, or those whose owners can no longer care for them. We provide animals a place to live out their days in peace, surrounded by beauty, companionship, and love.

The Ranch is comprised of 26 acres in Elgin, Arizona at an elevation of 5100 ft., surrounded by the Coronado National Forest. The views are endless, as are the dreams inspired by providing a safe haven for animals in need.
