A donor funded 501c3 non profit organization

Your donation is tax deductible


Our Mission:

We are a 501-C3 non profit organization located in Cave Creek, Arizona. Our mission is to rescue unadoptable Siberian Huskies and Nordic breeds and let them live out the rest of their natural lives in a stress free and natural environment at Animal Town. All of our residents are SENIORS rescued from death row shelters.

Unlike traditional shelters that emphasize adoption, the primary purpose of Animal Town Sanctuary, is to provide a lifetime of care and sheltering for these animals. Including end of life care.  There are no cages and the animals are free to move about, interacting with each other.

We also promote animal education to the public, with holistic treatment techniques being a major focus. We have over eight years of experience with CBD oil to treat cancer, specialized diets, natural foods, canine supplements, aroma and music therapy. Our rehabilitation efforts and treatments are aimed at improving an animal’s quality of life. We provide 24 hour around the clock, as well as End of Life Care for all of our rescues. We always emphasize the importance of spaying and neutering your pet and reporting animal abuse. With your support, Animal Town Sanctuary will be able to continue its mission

Pistachio the homeless husky

  Pistachio is a 15 year old Siberian Husky mix. She was a street dog for 8 years.

 Pistachio came to us five years ago from the Santa Monica Animal Shelter. Shelter staff informed us that Pistachio was a frequent “guest” at the shelter because her owner was a local homeless man who lived on the streets. Unfortunately, the homeless man would often get incarcerated and Pistachio would be sent to the shelter. The staff was very familiar with her. Sadly, her owner was sent to prison permanently and the shelter reached out to our sanctuary in hopes of rescuing her


 She was in poor health due to her inconsistent diet of leftover human junk food. Her coat and her teeth in in poor condition, her energy was low and her ears were down. We slowly introduced a grain free dry food, glucosamine, and omega 3 oils and saw an instant improvement in her fur and her energy. It took her almost a full year to be rehabilitated to normal status.


 Today, Pistachio is being treated for canine dementia. She requires a lot of care and we are happy to provide it for as long as she needs it.
