Revelation Gardens

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death, or mourning, or crying, or pain for the old order of things has passed away”.

Revelation 21:4

Revelation Gardens was founded to offer cats and dogs sanctuary in a home-like environment.  Our primary focus is pets surrendered or abandoned as a result of owner death or disability.

Research shows when companion animals experience loss they need time to grieve and heal. When placed in a shelter environment, which is often characterized by high levels of stress or are placed in a rescue (after experiencing loss) and then are uprooted again sometimes multiple times they can experience compounded grief leading to health and behavioral problems. By providing these companion animals with a sanctuary environment, we enable them to heal, rebuild trust, and experience stability for the duration of their lives.

Our programming is rooted in a home-like environment. Residents listen to soothing music, watch nature videos, explore the outdoors, engage in individual and group playtime, and enjoy healthy, nutritious food! Through a consistent routine our rescue-pets transform from being fearful and withdrawn to exploring, playing with toys, and bonding with their rescue brothers and sisters.


When Revelation Gardens was founded, we filled up almost immediately. Our plan was to expand but quickly realized it is not sustainable to continually expand to help all the cats and dogs in need. We believe it is imperative we address the underlying causes of pet abandonment, surrender, and abuse. For this reason we founded our community outreach program which helps more pets stay in their home.

Our goal is to to provide pet owners with the resources they need including education, stress-reduction tools, and resource alignment so they keep their pets.
