Home for Life is an animal sanctuary that welcomes animals of all ages and abilities. Rescuing sick or aging pets from being put down, the shelter gives a home to over 200 animals -- dogs, cats and more. In addition to giving these animals a new start, Home for Life also brings the animals into their local community and shares them with children who have faced violence and abuse. The children and the animals both have known difficulty and a healing bond of empathy grows between them. At Home for Life, the animals are teachers of connection and compassion and are given a chance to share their gifts with those who need it.

    The embodiment of life at its finest. The shame is that so few of us experience this...

    There is nothing more pure in this world than the love and healing powers of an animal. As I watched this film I realized that there are no disabilities in the animal world, but more different abilities.

    Just beautiful.To see such kindness, such empathy for these wonderful animals and their connection with those innocent and beautiful children, brought tears to my eyes. Tears of joy, to know that God's Angels are certainly among us 😊

    We think of dogs, cats, and other animals to visit the sick and elderly but what a great idea for abused children!
