Frequently Asked Questions

1.) How many animals live at The Sanctuary?

We have between 15-20 dogs onsite with several more in foster care.  We also have between 65-75 cats, many of whom roam freely about in our dedicated cat building. 

2.) Where do your animals come from?

The Sanctuary rescues local animals in the Lehigh Valley and we also partner with both regional and out of state shelters who are over-crowded and at risk of euthanizing their animals.  We are a community resource and can offer assistance for surrendered pets under special circumstances such as military deployment.  

3.) What is a "no-kill" shelter?

We adhere to a No-Kill animal welfare approach which means no animal is ever killed to make room for new arrivals.  In very rare cases, if animals are suffering and are too sick to heal or too vicious to be rehabilitated, they are humanely euthanized.  Both of these situations are extremely rare occurrences.  

4.) How do I report neglect? 

The PSPCA Humane Law Enforcement program serves Lehigh County. You can find more information below to report cruelty cases:

AJ
AJ is one of over 110 cats who were rescued from a home in April 2019. Like many of the others, AJ was very confused and scared when he came to the Sanctuary. In the 9 months since then, AJ has learned to trust the volunteers who care for him. AJ has learned that human kindness and affection are good things. He has come such a long way and deserves to live his life in a loving home rather than the shelter. AJ is gentle and gets along very well with other cats. He is a good boy and would thrive with caring, patient and loving people. 
AJ is 4 years old, handsome, healthy, neutered, vaccinated, negative for felv and litter trained. It was reported that AJ does have some night vision issues but it does not limit him. Please consider opening your heart and home to AJ.
