Special Appearance by Ultra-Marathoner and Best Selling Author Scott Jurek

The goal of this fundraising event is to raise capital funds to purchase a property in Colorado for our animal sanctuary and retreat center.

We’re seeking unique property with space and water for vegetable, butterfly and bee gardens, natural wildlife, and a home for rescued domestic and companion animals.

Our new home will also serve as a retreat center for people to escape their daily lives with time to restore and heal with rescued animals in the tranquility and beauty of the sanctuary.

Andrea RoseInterim BoardmemberAnimal Care Manager

My name is Andrea Rose and I love animals and the planet. I have felt a connection to animals and nature for as long as I can remember. By spending time with animals, I’ve seen they have emotions, are self-aware and truly value their own lives. Because of this, I believe we have an obligation to respect, protect and care for them.

That connection has turned into my life’s mission of working tirelessly to help animals in need. I currently work as a veterinary technician where I provide care for animals at work and I care for many animals in our microsanctuary.

Because of my deep reverence for animals, I decided to help start Living With Harmony with John Pierre. In my work at the sanctuary, I help our residents, many of them with behavioral or special needs and that have been injured, abandoned or neglected, so they can live out their lives in peace and with joy and comfort. We all strive for a fulfilling life full of happiness and it’s my honor to provide this same opportunity to animals in need. In my work at the sanctuary, I also try to provide education and resources about companion animals and classroom pets and the issues they face.

In addition to working and caring for animals at the sanctuary, I use my passion and experience as an environmental educator to bring awareness to the benefits of sustainable and greener living. At Living with Harmony, we hope to also inspire people to create a positive change in their lives through their experience and connection to the community that we are trying to create.
