Juliana’s Animal Sanctuary is literally the only hope for farmed animals in Colombia and the only project to provide help by rescuing them from suffering or providing emergency medical care.
We are the first sanctuary established in South America and are currently the only one in Colombia. We have also established strong educational programs, including vegan cooking workshops, vegan comics, vegan food relief and strong social media activism.
Juliana’s Animal Sanctuary was founded in 2008 in Colombia. However, the project has its roots in Juliana’s initial desire to save all the world’s animals when she learned about the suffering of animals as a 5-year old girl. At age 11 she began saving money to build her project and by age 26 she purchased her first property. However, in pursuing her dream, Juliana faced numerous challenges, including a public that did not even understand the meaning of a sanctuary, legal battles for her land, lack of funds and overwhelming demand of animals in need. In 2015, the project was registered as a 501c3 charity in Maryland, USA and with this brought a new source of funds and support from overseas.
Today, the project cares for 93 animals on a new 10,000 sqm property in Colombia.
We have an annual budget of $150,000 to cover the expenses for providing first-class food, shelter and medical care for the animals under our care, as well as animals in need outside of the sanctuary, and our amazing strong educational programs.
Donations made to Juliana’s Animal Sanctuary enable us to provide the absolute the best life for the animals under our care, as well as empower our vegan advocacy projects for the Colombian population and most importantly, to address the root cause of animal abuse – inequality.
