About Us

Gentle Touch Animal Sanctuary was founded in 2001 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit animal rescue and placement organization.  Our mission is to find homes for homeless and abandoned animals by providing refuge in a comfortable, safe environment until new permanent homes can be found.

After 10 years of having a cage-free shelter environment for our animals we are now going through a transition period from shelter based to foster based.  Our animals are placed into loving caring temporary homes until they can find new homes of their own.  Before each animal is placed for adoption, they receive a vet exam, vaccinations, spay or neuter, and are treated for any known medical issues such as colds or other minor medical issues.

Some of our animals require major medical treatments before they become available for adoption.  GTAS does not turn any animal away needing medical treatment (provided space is available).

As a volunteer-based organization, our volunteers provide the necessary daily care and love needed by all the animals seven days a week. These dedicated and caring volunteers are the foundation of our organization.

Volunteer and you too will feel good about life.


These are just some of the thousands of kitties that have touched our lives.  Volunteering makes all this possible.
