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:

Newt
Newt shares the same backstory as many of our Sanctuary residents over the past year. He came to us as part of a situation involving over 100 cats. He was very nervous at first, choosing a quiet hideout in the corner of the room. However, with time, patience, and the love of our volunteer staff, Newt has really come into his own. He now spends much of his time, when he is not stretched out and sleeping, exploring the room and socializing with volunteers. Newt enjoys napping in a patch of sunshine. Newt‘s favorite activity is eating and can be won over with his favorite treats.
 
This lovely fellow is one of our longest feline residents, having joined the Sanctuary in April of 2019. Initially, his timid personality was an obstacle for finding a forever home. However, Newt has blossomed into a gentle, sweet cat who deserves a home of his own.
 
Newt is great with other cats. He has a calm personality and can frequently be found cuddled up with a feline buddy. He is about 5 years old. He is healthy, neutered, vaccinated, negative for felv and litter trained.
