This is Briggitte, the former volunteer co-ordinator for Serenity Springs. It is with great sadness that I inform you of Terry DeGaw's (Serenity Springs Founder) death. Terry created a beautiful haven for the animals at Serenity Springs and her memory along with her kindness for all creatures will live on forever. The majority of the animals from Serenity Springs were relocated to Atlasta Home Sanctuary in Ennis, TX. The cats and dogs along with a few horses were privately adopted or sent to other sanctuaries to live out the rest of their lives in peace.

Chris Hinterman who runs Atlasta Home Sanctuary outside of Dallas, love volunteers who are willing to help with the animals. Her information is at the website below:

Haven for a Few Animals

4 Posted on 01 / 03 / 2011

Serenity Springs is run by a friendly one-woman tornado who cares for about 150 animals at any given time. Lots of pigs, a few horses, mules, cows, steer, donkeys, chickens, dogs, cats, and ponies. There are blind animals and those without limbs who would surely be put down if not for this one woman. She can use all the help and financial support we can give her. Call ahead if you want to visit. She will give you a Texas welcome if she possibly can!

Pros: Accepting of all animals, Friendly owner
Cons: Not yet vegan - working on it
