Happy Tales Animal Sanctuary (formerly Sun Qu Healing Animal Sanctuary) is a unique organization.

We rescue all types of animals, focusing mostly on wildlife, exotics, and farm animals. We rehabilitate them using natural methods such as bodywork and give them a permanent, loving home. When appropriate, we release native wildlife back into the wild. Happy Tales Animal Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization run entirely on donations from the public. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Happy-Tales-HorseMany of the animals who remain at the sanctuary participate in our therapy and educational outreach programs and help to facilitate healing in the individuals seeking our help.

Our goals in our educational outreach program focus on Conservation, Preservation, and Education. We want people to be aware of what is happening in the wild with these animals and their native habitats and why it is important for us to work to preserve these lands for humans, animals, and the world in general. We also want them to understand why certain animals do not make good pets.

From a healing aspect we provide bodywork, long distance healing, and energy work for those looking for alternative ways to heal. We are in the process of beginning “Animal Theraplay”, a program where children of special needs can come for therapy with our animals. We also incorporate bodywork with these children and the results thus far have been astounding!
