Your Departed Pets Will Always Be With You…

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

We Save the Pets No One Else Wants

We are a final refuge for elderly, special needs, hospice, and abandoned companion animals.

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

They stay until their last breath on our 30-acre ranch with fruit trees, gardens, and a sunny deck.

They have suffered enough. Now it is their time to live the best life as part of our family. 

Our two newest rescues: 



These two cats were from a hoarder house with over 30 cats.

Most were very sick, including Maui and Kona.

Suffering from upper respiratory disease and stomatitis (painful mouth ulcers), malnourished, and fearful of humans.

After 400+ days at the shelter, no one wanted them. 

They are now doing well and slowly adjusting to their new home 

Maui even made her debut on the sunny deck!

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

As a family-run rescue, we rely on private donations for ongoing support.

When we save a pet, it opens a space in local shelters for adoptable pets.

We save two lives for every pet we bring to the sanctuary. 

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 a dream come true.

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

Donations are tax-deductible where allowed by law.

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.

    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.

    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.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      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…

    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.

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