Precious Life Animal Sanctuary

A safe home for animals who have suffered from cruelty and neglect

Happy Holidays to All

Precious Life Animal Sanctuary’s 85 acres on the Olympic Peninsula is a mere speck, but to wildlife, rescued farm and companion animals (pigs, cows, burros, sheep, turkeys, rabbits, dogs, cats) and hidden and declining pollinators, it is special. A home, a safe place, independent from any human wants or needs, to live out their lives.

While they share the land with us, so many of them are in peril because of us. More are in decline from increased habitat loss. More land clearing, more housing developments, more shopping centers, more native vegetation plowed up for crops and dire use of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides.

At PLAS, all animals, large and small, can enjoy their love of life and intuitively know they are protected and valued for who they are and not how they can be used.

Thanks to all who make it possible for us to continue.

We asked about his male dairy calves and he replied they were born every day and picked up three times a week. He didn’t seem to know or care what happened to them as they were an inconvenience and there was little return on investment.
