Launching My Non-Profit Animal Sanctuary – Painted Rain Ranch

I am excited to announce the Official Launch of my new Non-Profit 501-c-3 Animal Sanctuary:

Painted Rain Ranch

Your donation is tax-deductible – Click here

A final refuge for elderly, ill, and abandoned companion animals.

Our residents live with us as a family in our home.

Our motto is…

“No companion animal should die alone or in a shelter”

They can live out the rest of their natural life in a loving home surrounded by almost 30 acres of beautiful forested mountains, a raspberry garden, fruit trees, grapevines, green grass, and sunshine.



We will provide all the medication, treatments, exercise, and rehabilitation they need to be happy and healthy.

As a small, family-run rescue we only care for a small number of residents so we can devote every moment to their needs.

When one leaves us it opens a space to bring in a new deserving soul.

The Painted Rain Ranch Animal Sanctuary and Final Refuge is my dream come true.

For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to save every needy creature I found.

I just received my ‘official letter’ from the IRS that the Painted Rain Ranch is a legal non-profit charity so all donations are tax-deductible.

Donate here


I will dedicate the rest of my life to providing a final refuge to these deserving souls.

Dreams really do come true.

If you work really hard and follow your heart and your passion you can do anything you set your mind to.

Don’t let anyone or anything stand in your way of following your dreams.

  1. I am so happy for you Karen! What a huge accomplishment! I’ve thought about doing this for years and have never made it happen so I am going to live vicariously through you. I’ve been a client for decades, a fan for life. Your books and your philosophy about the afterlife has helped me heal in so many ways I’ll never be able to thank you. I’m setting up a monthly donation for your wonderful sanctuary. Thank you for always giving so much to the animals. You are a true blessing.

    1. Thank you so much, Val! It has been quite a journey you’ve had and I am honored to be a part of it. Thank you for your support. The animals and I are so very grateful. You are the true angel on Earth! Biggest hugs of gratitude!

  2. Congratulations Karen!
    Wow, I don’t know how you do it but you manage to exceed the boundaries of what one person can do. I wish you the best with your new animal rescue and I am so glad we have met. You have helped me through my pain and were there for me when no one else was. So thank you!I sent in my donation and I am sharing your rescue site on my Facebook page.

    1. Thanks so much, Julie! Your generous donation is greatly appreciated and so needed. We send our gratitude to all of you! Big hugs to all…

  5. Congrats Karen!
    You are so amazing helping even more animals with your sanctuary.
    Those are some lucky residents to have you as their caretaker.

    When I lost my Joey, I thought I would die. You helped me find my life again. I still miss him more than life itself but I am no longer in that dark place….because of you.

    We are sending a donation to your wonderful Painted Rain Ranch with our gratitude and may you continue to do such great work for these precious babies.

    1. Sara, thank you so much for your generous donation. You have suffered a devastating loss and my heart goes out to you with love and healing. I’m so proud of how you have taken the steps to move forward and how you made the decision for Joey’s sake that you would honor him by celebrating his life. You’ve come a long way and you should be so proud of your accomplishments. Thank you for being you, for sharing your angel Joey with me. He is a bright star shining upon you always. Sending love and healing…

  6. I think this is wonderful! I care for several special needs pets and it is a 24/7 job. No weekend or holiday breaks, no vacations..It is hard to leave them for even a few hours. Thank you for helping these animals and we need more people to open their homes to these precious souls.

    1. You got that right! It is a labor of love that never ends. Thank you, Barbara, for caring for your precious babies, too!

  7. Thank you for sharing this exciting announcement with me. I’ve worked in rescue for 30+ years and I know how much work goes into getting your non-profit status. Good job and congratulations. The first of many donations are on the way.

    1. Thanks so much, Rex! I really appreciate it and also thank you for all YOU do on behalf of the animals. We need to clone you! Thank you for the generous donation and blessings to you and yours!
