Thanks – We Did It – We Made our Matching Goal!

Thanks to you, we met the Malcolm B. Bird Charitable Foundation fundraising challenge to earn our matching grant.

This means we were able to almost double our $25,757.00 in donations to $50,757.00!  This money has now been set aside for our much needed property fund.

Our Search for A Home

During the fundraising campaign we’ve been busy looking at properties and trying to find the perfect home for the Living With Harmony Sanctuary and Retreat Center. There are so many beautiful communities in Colorado that it’s hard to make a choice. And if you know of any properties that you think might work for us, please let us know.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this fundraising drive so successful.  We especially want to thank the Malcolm B. Bird Charitable Foundation for providing us with this wonderful fundraising challenge.  We would not be able to do this without your support!

New Opportunities and Experiences

We’re continuing to gain experience through volunteering at new local sanctuaries.

We’re currently spending time at Luvin’ Arms Animal Sanctuary in Lafayette, Colorado and are always helping animals in need when we can. Here’s a great photo of two of the pigs at Luvin Arms – Felix and Franklin.

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.
