Southeast Llama Rescue is always willing to try to help you. SELR is also one of the few organizations that can be turned to in cases of
aggression and other behavior problems. But there are other rescue resources and options that may be closer to your area. We hope that everyone who has a legitimate rescue option will contact us to be listed here. Please feel free to link our site to yours so that all llama owners, and the llamas, have an opportunity to be helped. Working together benefits llamas most of all.
SELR does not endorse or inspect these organizations, their practices, policies or care. They are listed here for your information only.

Creek Llama Sanctuary in Tennessee
Contact: George Brandon
564 Mahoney Road, Oliver Springs, TN 37840
See their online news article and video at:
Indian Creek Llama Sanctuary was formed to provide a permanent home
for llamas generally considered to be "unadoptable" because
of chronic medical conditions that require continuous care. We currently
supply food, shelter, and medical care and treatment to 21 llamas
and have room for several more. Of special interest to us is the
care of animals with digestive problems that require special feeds
and underdeveloped llamas typically diagnosed as "failure-to-thrive".
In addition, we also offer support and help to new llama owners
in the East Tennessee area. We will pick up llamas within a 150-mile
radius of Knoxville, Tennessee. We receive occasional donations,
but fund most of the Sanctuary's activities through our own personal
resources. We are accordingly unable to buy llamas and must reserve
our funds for use in caring and treating the animals permanently
residing at Indian Creek.

PO Box 411, Goshen MA 01032
We aren't an organization, just a farm with lots of space for critters
and a heartfelt need to help when we can. Services include providing
a safe, long term home for llamas and other animals in need. We
will do rehabilitation, but only with animals we own or who have
been given to us. We do offer consultation for people who are experiencing
problems with their llamas, horses, or other animals. We are a working
farm of close to a thousand acres with a number of good useable
barns and lots of pasture space. We currently have 75 llamas, eleven
horses, an orphaned goat, chickens, guineas, dogs, cats, parrots,
and a king snake. In the past 12 months we have taken in about 14
llamas in need of a home and several horses as well. This is a farm
supported rescue operation. We receive no funding or donations,
so are limited by our resources at the time of the request for assistance.
Most of the animals who are adopted remain here for their lifetime.
A few are placed in well screened and appropriate homes. In most
cases we are able to offer transportation for the animals we adopt.
It often depends upon distance. We employ two horse trailers and
a utility van to transport.

provide transportation to a temporary haven for them until placed.
We can contact experienced llama veterinarians when serious medical
care is needed.
Llama Rescue in New York

We are located in the Northeast but have rescued llamas from all
over the US. We have rehabilitated and found homes for over 50 llamas
in 2001. We try not to turn any animal in need away that needs a
home. We have a truck and trailer and have traveled thousands of
miles in our quest to pick up animals that need a home. Unfortunately,
we fund this unprofitable enterprise out of our pocket so we no
longer are able to afford to buy animals and are always looking
for donations to help us save more llamas.
