Animal Guardian Network’s mission:    
To advocate for the welfare of all animals.

To educate people about proper animal care.

To inspire compassion and respect for all animals.

AGN Sanctuary and Healing Center - 
    24/7 long-term care and rehabilitation is provided to an average of 40 plus animals including dogs, horses,
    chickens, and other livestock. The sanctuary includes the following facilities:

Bow Wow Bunkhouse -
    Sanctuary and enrichment provided to adoptable, special needs, and long-term care animals. It is the next best life
    to a permanent home with a family.

Old Dog Inn - 
    Two small cabins where senior dogs that have lost their human seniors can spend the rest of their lives in a loving
    setting that feels like home.

Healing Heart Chapel - 
    A special place where people can go to grieve the loss of an animal. The walls of the quaint chapel are filled with
    tribute angels, each bearing the name of an animal that has passed. It is a comforting reminder that you are not
    alone in your grief.
