–Natalie, the staff and all the animals.


The Heart and Soul Animal Sanctuary is a place of refuge for animals who otherwise would perish: The abandoned, the abused, the sick, the old, the suffering. Located on 130 wooded acres In the Santa Fe National Forest near Santa Fe New Mexico, the Sanctuary is non-profit and tax-exempt. We also are an accredited member of The Association of Sanctuaries, a national organization with the highest standards for animal welfare and care. Our founder and director, Natalie Owings, works at the Sanctuary 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without salary. She and the dogs live, family style, in the “Giant Doghouse”—essentially a spacious room with 25 or 30 dog beds and one human bed.
