How We Help
Sanctuary for Animals
At Clearwater Sanctuary, our passionate team treats and cares for almost every species native to Louisiana, including migratory birds and endangered animals. We have an extraordinary understanding for the depth and awareness that these species possess, and we’re honored to help them return to nature.
Daily, we monitor hundreds of animals that roam our sanctuary, caring for them as needed in their reestablishment to the wild. As the space arises, we accept new admissions from rehabilitators, veterinarians and animal shelters for release into the wild on our protected sanctuary grounds.
"If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion, you have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men"
- St. Francis of Assisi
Second Chances Start Here
Our companion animal orphanage provides second chances for less fortunate animals. It’s been home to hundreds of orphaned dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, hamsters, turtles and birds. Each new resident is accepted on a case by case basis and some are adopted into loving, private homes. Others remain at the sanctuary, where they live life to the fullest and enjoy all our planet has to offer.
"The greatness of a nation, and its moral progress, can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
Helping Our Forever Friends
Our Companion Animal Trust cares for pets after their owners have passed away. We’re sensitive to the grieving process of companion animals, and we try to offer them the comfort and love found in their former homes. It’s particularly helpful if arrangements and visits are planned in advance. This eases the transition for the companion animal and offers peace of mind to their human family.
