Tucked away in a picturesque valley near the Canelo Hills is a place of healing for unwanted and retired animals. Whisper's Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit permanent home for animals in need. Current residents include horses, burros, goats, dogs and a flock of geese. We are delighted to be a retirement home for service animals, including horses from Ft. Huachuca's 4th (Memorial) B Troop, therapeutic horses, and a retired Border Patrol dog.
The Sanctuary offers children a special program called Forever HERO, a program that aims to teach children humane options for retiring horses. Children and guests visiting the Sanctuary can meet the animals, hear their stories, and learn about good stewardship.
100% of all donations is used for the direct maintenance of Sanctuary animals - feed and health care expenses. Donations are tax deductible. We operate Sparky's Cantina, a gourmet vegetarian, vegan and allergy-free food mobile to "fundraise" for the Sanctuary. Sparky also offers special-event catering. Sparky's food can be found at the Sierra Vista Co-Op market, where we sell our ready-to-eat prepared meals, conventional and allergy-free/vegan baked goods, specialty nuts, and horse/dog treats.
