Indraloka Animal Sanctuary announces its new Animal Sponsorship program. A monthly donation, based on the type of animal sponsored, helps feed and provide veterinary care for the animal of your choice. Sponsors receive photos of their animals, with biographies that tell the animals' stories—how they arrived at the Sanctuary and what their lives are like now. Sponsors are also invited to make appointments to visit their animals and witness the peaceful environment in which they now live.

Animal sponsorship is a great way to forge a connection with a farm animal, said Indra Lahiri, founder and director of Indraloka Animal Sanctuary. Most people are unable to adopt their own horses and care for them privately. However, you can sponsor an Indraloka horse for only $100 a month, or an irresistibly cute pig for only $35 monthly and we do all the work. We also have beautiful cows and mules, impish sheep and goats, adorable chickens, fun ducks, a gorgeous peacock, a brave goose, and some very cuddly turkeys. What could be more romantic than giving someone you love sponsorship of a living, loving animal for Valentine's Day?

Between now and the end of February, true romantics can sponsor a pair of animals for the price of one. Email the Sanctuary at indra@epix.net for more details.

People interested in sponsoring an animal can visit the Indraloka website's Give page online at http://www.indraloka.org/give/.

As Pennsylvania's only farm animal rescue, Indraloka provides heaven on earth for 165 animals that have nowhere else to turn. Indraloka educates the community, especially children, on ways in which to better care for the environment while helping animals in need. Indraloka is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit situated on 30 pastoral acres nestled within the Endless Mountains. The Sanctuary's residents include horses, mules, cows, pigs of all sizes and breeds, goats, sheep, chickens, turkeys, ducks, a goose and a peacock. Several domestic animals that rescue groups were unable to place also call the Sanctuary home.

Indraloka hosts workshops and events at the Sanctuary throughout the year. Most events are family friendly. Tours of the Sanctuary are also available by appointment. For more information, visit: www.indraloka.org.
