Target demographics: Active adults between 18 and 70 years young nation-wide.

Youth Groups ages 6 -18 in the Rocky Mountain Region.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Denkai Animal Sanctuary is unique in that it aims to provide a combination of services for animals in need, at‐risk youth, and environmental awareness. This will be accomplished through hands on educational opportunities.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Socialize animals, update website information, create or distribute literature, clean kennels and cages, groom animals, walk dogs, pet and give love to horses or other livestock, clean pens, feed animals, work in our gardens, transport an animal from a shelter to the adoption facility or sanctuary, transport an animal to a foster or adoptive family, help with repairs or maintenance on structures and buildings or yards, take photos for petfinder and websites, THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!

Geographic areas served: Denkai has helped several regions of the US including CA and the victims of hurricanes in the coastal regions of the south.

Programs: I. Current services offered through the Sanctuary include:
A. Adopt common “companion animals”, namely dogs and cats, to suitable homes, as well as adoption of other animals including horses, pot-bellied pigs, and other adoptable livestock. We define "adoptable" as: “Dogs and cats that are eight weeks of age or older and livestock that are one year of age or older that at or subsequent to the time the animal is impounded or otherwise taken into possession, have manifested no sign of a behavioral or temperamental defect that could pose a health or safety risk or otherwise make the animal unsuitable for placement as a pet. The animals are adoptable if they have no signs of disease, injury, or congenital or hereditary condition that adversely affects the health of the animal or that is likely to adversely affect the animal’s health in the future. Healthy/adoptable animals may be old, deaf, blind, disfigured or disabled.
B. Provide a permanent sanctuary for animals that are deemed as non-adoptable. Non-adoptable animals are defined as any animal that does not fit into the definition above.
C. Provide education and outreach on proper animal care to current and potential animal owners.
D. Assist law enforcement in investigating and prosecuting cases of animal neglect and/or other abuse.
E. Provide volunteer opportunities for the young and old in the local and national community. We are especially focused on reaching at-risk youth and serving as an approved site for court-ordered community service hour projects.

Mission:
Denkai Animal Sanctuary impacts the community as a whole through our animal rescue services and outreach. We provide life-saving options to a wide variety of abused, abandoned, or neglected animals that have nowhere else to turn. Our outreach in the community, through adoption events and humane education, aims to increase awareness of our relationship with and responsibility to the animals that share our world. Volunteers at the sanctuary get valuable hands-on experience in the growing field of animal welfare along with sustainable living practices. Not only do they make a difference in the lives of the animals they help, but they are also making a positive contribution to their community by donating
Results:
The sanctuary began with 25 animals on 15 acres with minimal facilities and a few volunteers. There were no large benefactors that started this organization, it has grown over the last three years through very hard work and hands on daily chores, sometimes lasting late into the evening. Thanks to a very dedicated group of volunteers who stayed with us through a very rough beginning, our sanctuary is now situated on 640 acres and includes a small barn in need of repair, a quonset building for machinery, a small garage, 600 square foot house, and pasture, and we are caring for more than 150 animals on a daily basis. Denkai has in the past actively operated using sustainable energies. Denkai has doubled its income in the past year, largely through our website. Individuals who have heard about our organization can log onto our website to learn more about our efforts, and can easily make monetary donations through Network for Good. Approximately 90% of our donors have never physically visited the sanctuary, and have learned about us by visiting our website, via media exposure or through public outreach activities. The newest acquisition is the adoption center located near Greeley, CO which enables the large populations of surrounding areas to have ready access to approximately 70 adoptable animals. Since 2005, Denkai has provided rescue, rehabilitation and permanent sanctuary to over 1000 animals.

The Sanctuary has offered educational programs to area schools such as the Fort
Collins Lab School and Meeker Elementary School.


Denkai has responded and provided relief to national emergency situations such as the CA wildfires and hurricane Katrina. Denkai responded to a horse slaughter plant in Dekalb, IL and rescued horses right off the kill line as the plant was closed due to newly implemented restrictions banning the slaughter of horses in the US.
