Laudate Dominum: A Sanctuary for Pets Left Behind

Edward the Rabbit

Laudate Dominum Hermitage is a modest monastery in the Appalachian mountains near Elk Creek, Virginia that serves as a refuge and sanctuary for unwanted and abandoned pets. Dogs, cats, a few chickens and a rabbit have found their forever home here within this traditional, religious community of the Hermits of the Contemplative Heart of Mary.

With God’s blessing and a few loyal supporters, these genuine custodians of creation barely manage  to pay for pet food, people food, vet bills and various other expenses. These dedicated people deserve any support we can offer them. They always need more pet facilities, donated veterinarian services, volunteers to help with the animals and, of course, food and monetary donations. To Learn more about the sanctuary and how you can help, go to:
