These are identified by local health care providers and organizations knowing the financial and medical condition of the individual. Volunteer labor is used t​o build the ramps.

Our vision is that no New Mexico resident shall lack safe access because of financial limitations. 

Sunflower Sanctuary Animal Rescue was founded by Cynthia Dares in October of 2008. She was a hurricane Katrina survivor and worked with Best Friends Animal Rescue to help rescue thousands of animals that were left behind. There were many animals lost because their owners could not take them with them. Cynthia witnessed many sad stories and also many miracles.

After settling in Tijeras, New Mexico Cynthia bought the perfect place to start an animal sanctuary. We now have been in business for 5 years and have saved over 100 old dogs. Our primary existence is to provide a loving and safe home for the elderly animals that can not be placed in a home. These animals still have a good life left to live and need love and peace at the end of their lives. 

Sunflower Sanctuary Animal Rescue also provides a home for handicapped dogs. Others come to stay because they have behavioral issues and would have been killed. These animals need training and lots of patience to overcome their fears and to learn to trust again.Type your paragraph here.​
