Since April of 2013 I have had to pleasure to become part of Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary in Imlay, NV. 

Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary is a nonprofit organization founded in 2000 in northern Illinois. Once they started growing, they moved out west in 2006 to Imlay, NV (outside of Reno).

Several of their residents were former exotic pets that were unwanted. Others were neglected and abused. Thankfully, with Safe Haven these beautiful animals can get a second chance at life. It is because of places like Safe Haven that give the education to the public about wildlife and the need to save them.

Safe Haven offers educational tours of their sanctuary and private tours with their Executive Director, Lynda Sugasa. Check out how and when to make your visit here.

Throughout the year they host events that benefit their residents. For more information, go here.

How does our partnership work?

Any piece I do that is of a Safe Haven resident, when it sells 40% of the price will go directly to the residents of Safe Haven. Several pieces are at Safe Haven ready for purchase, some are being worked on as we speak. It's for a wonderful cause. I work from reference photos provided by Safe Haven. Each resident has a story of their own. With each piece, their personal story will be provided along with information on the species, and how you can help.

I've always wanted to work to save wildlife and I am thankful everyday that I get to do that with another passion, my art.
