Beautiful Together: An Animal Sanctuary 
Connecting Children Waiting for Families to Animals In Need

For the past six years, Beautiful Together has focused on supporting children waiting for families through a variety of tangible projects and ongoing funds, both here in the United States, as well as in Africa and Syria. Our goal has always been to improve the lives of children growing up in orphanages, group homes and the foster care system. 

Along the way, we have repeatedly witnessed the incredible therapeutic connection that children make with animals. And research backs up what many pet owners already know: children connect with animals for comfort, reassurance and emotional support, especially when experiencing fear, loneliness, sadness or stress.

To that end, we are excited to announce a new initiative that powerfully connects these meaningful efforts: The Beautiful Together Animal Sanctuary, a safe and nurturing environment for animals in need of refuge. Our mission is to love, care for and provide a home for abused, abandoned and neglected animals so they can one day find families of their own - or live the rest of their days with us, in peace, at our sanctuary. And a major charter of this sanctuary is to create ongoing programs for children in foster care, group homes and at-risk situations to visit the animals, help care for them and spend time in “pet therapy” sessions: bottle feeding kittens, socializing puppies, brushing goats - and so much more. 

Our goal is simple: To connect the vulnerable and the voiceless in purposeful ways that benefit us all.
