Stardust Sanctuary is a rescue, refuge, and retreat for animals located in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. We are a Not-For-Profit 501(c)3 Charitable Organization #26-2812383. We rescue dogs, cats, and horses from abuse, neglect, and abandonment.

We provide refuge for animals until they are ready to be adopted out. We are a safe haven for unadoptable animals as well. These animals may become unadoptable due to urgent medical needs or severe trust, territorial, or other emotional issues.

We also recognize and address the healing potential for both persons and animals in need. We have various day retreats at the Sanctuary where focused animal activities such as reading to the animals and caring for them brings peace to those involved in the interaction.

100% of all proceeds go to the direct care of animals.

Has this past year left you feeling too emotionally charged, drained and/or hopeless?

Well you are not alone, the energy was overly intense. Many people were feeling this intense energy, and then (consciously or unconsciously) they added in their momentum.

Along with a New Year, there is also a new energy arriving. For those that follow Astrology or Numerology, this year is all about “New Beginnings” and “Taking Back Your Power”

We have designed a special class to help process through the negative energy of 2016, understand what’s upcoming for 2017, and accessing your powerful heart connection that links us to each other, along with connecting us to the Divine support that is available whenever we ask for assistance.

We at Stardust Sanctuary would like to take this moment to express our deepest gratitude to all who have strived to make a positive impact on the world this year. Whether you have helped a family of baby ducks cross the road safely, took care of an ailing relative, adopted an animal, or made a heartfelt donation of funds or time, you have made the world a better place.

Many people would say that 2016 has been a rough year. We have lost family members, both human and nonhuman, friends, acquaintances, Hollywood and music icons. Here, at Stardust, it's been a year filled with many vet visits, surgeries, cancer treatments, broken bones, heartbreak, and soul shattering grief. On the up side, we have experienced happy tears and joy at the lives saved and hearts healed, we relax in the satisfaction of hearing and sharing amazing love connection adoption stories, and we are awed by witnessing newfound trust in former fearful eyes.

All these experiences only make us stronger in our belief that what is ultimately meaningful and important is to reach out and help. This is our path, our calling, our lives. We want to thank everyone for holding us up through the hard times and rejoicing with us when the good comes. You, with your kind words, actions, and prayers, have sent love and light to help us this year. Your helping hand has resulted in successful rescues, food, shelter, and medical care for these rescues, and allowing this peaceful animal sanctuary to continue to exist and move forward. We love you all.

Thank you.
