SELR tries to never turn away a lama (the family that includes both
llamas and alpacas), and it is our intention that such an event
doesn't occur. We have been able to successfully rescue over 500
lamas since our inception, thanks to all the dedicated people
who volunteer their time and effort to help transport, temporarily
house, and ultimately place the lamas surrendered to our organization
into their forever homes.
The need is ongoing. The issue is not limited to lamas that are abandoned
or abused. Numbers of llamas and alpacas that are much loved and well cared
for are affected when owners can no longer care for them due to unforeseen
changes in life circumstances. Often these beloved animals are older, have
health issues, or there is no time for a lengthy sale process - the animals
need to be relocated on a relatively immediate basis.
In order to provide support where possible, we need your help. The burdens
associated with vet care, feed and associated supplies are significant. In
an effort to underwrite ongoing expenses, we have launched a fundraising
campaign in hopes of creating a recurrent revenue stream that can be used to
maintain and expand our mission.
