You can stay at the sanctuary in an adorable cabin and embrace the experience of compassionate living. Take a look for opportunities to volunteer which will ignite your spirit! There are also Visiting Days most months of the year where you can enjoy the grounds and learn about the residents. Also look for special events like PEAKSGIVING hosted every November.

My Favorite Place on Earth

Uplands PEAK is sanctuary for all of us. I always go with the intention to volunteer in some way, but spending 10 minutes with any of the animals—I learn quickly how much more they do for me.

If you've never been, I recommend starting with a visiting day where you'll get a tour and education on the animals. But I find the most rewarding time there is spent volunteering, because you really get to know the residents and founders. All of which are incredible souls.
