The Glady Mae Animal Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and was incorporated into the state of Minnesota on December 4, 2014. Our mission is to provide a safe and permanent home for those cats and dogs at risk of unnecessary euthanasia. We have started taking in animals at very small sites, but are pursuing a 15 to 20-acre farm to fulfill our mission. We also provide a safe and temporary home for the pets of domestic abuse victims who often will not leave their abuser fearing for the pet's safety. This will allow the person to relocate to a safe place (places that often do not allow pets). The pet(s) and his or her human are reunited when the human is ready to leave the safe house and resume community living. Many pet and human lives are saved.
Most of the sanctuary animals come to us as strays or from shelters, the latter of which we will be networking with to obtain these animals before they are unnecessarily euthanized. Others will likely be drop-offs. After being quarantined for a short while to check for medical and psychological issues, most dogs will be members of a particular pack. All cats and dogs will be spayed or neutered.
The Glady Mae Animal Sanctuary provides the utmost love and care for all its companion animals for the best quality of life by meeting their physiological, social, psychological, environmental, and behavioral needs. Our animals are never hungry, thirsty, in pain, or in any discomfort. They are always free from fear and distress.
The Glady Mae Animal Sanctuary provides training for its dogs. Behavioral issues are one of the biggest reasons dogs are relinquished to shelters and subsequently are unnecessarily euthanized. For the vast majority of dogs, behavioral issues can be successfully treated. Treatment plans are tailored to the individual dog. We already have well versed trainers on board for this fun and rewarding task.
Our Executive Director/Secretary is a long-time pet lover and owner with direct experience in animal rescue, fostering, behavior, and medicine. She has been trained as a clinical psychologist with significant writing, statistical, and organizational skills. Our Chairperson is not only an avid animal lover, but is also a corporate attorney sitting on three other nonprofit boards. His vast knowledge of nonprofit management is an invaluable asset to our organization. Our Treasurer comes to us as a long-time educator with a long history of rescue, foster, and shelter work specializing in taking care of orphaned kittens. She is also a long-time pet lover and owner and is known to not only tend to saving the lives of dogs and cats, but birds and bunnies as well.
We are currently an all volunteer organization and rely on donations. Your donations will directly go to the care of the animals. Your donations are 100% tax deductible. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
