Free Spirit Sanctuary Logo

Free Spirit Sanctuary provides a peaceful, lifelong home for both domestic and wild horses, donkeys and farmed animals rescued from abuse, neglect or slaughter. FSS is founded on the belief that all living beings have inherent value, and are deserving of respect, compassion and the freedom to live according to their true nature. By helping people truly see the sentience, intelligence and rich emotional lives of animals, we hope to inspire compassionate living and interconnectedness with Nature and all living beings. We are also involved in increasing awareness about and advocating for the wild horses of Alberta, bringing an end to horse slaughter in Canada and the humane treatment of farmed animals.

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying.
