Since 1990, our approach to animal health and wellbeing has progressively shifted from a completely conventional approach to a more holistic one (although we still use conventional approaches for acute situations if needed).
We’ve definitely followed the wisdom of the animals as we’ve made this fascinating journey! As a result, BrightHaven has developed into a unique and renowned animal sanctuary, hospice, rescue and education center, with our Menu for Healing as the foundation of our animal wellness and hospice work.

We are proud to share a few of the lessons that our animals have so persuasively taught us about the importance of balance of body, mind and spirit: This harmony is a vital part of living well and of any healing process.

Animals are the bridge between us and the beauty of all that is natural. They show us what’s missing in our lives, and how to love ourselves more completely and unconditionally. They connect us back to who we are, and to the purpose of why we’re here. ― Trisha McCagh
