The Fruits of Our Labor
What We Do, Who We Can Help
Indian Creek Sanctuary's Sponsorship Program
Please consider helping to support one or more of the animals we have featured below. They are a subset of the current population maintained at ICLS but are among those which require the most care and thus the most financial support.
The average cost of maintenance includes supplements, medications, vaccinations, general upkeep and unending hugs and kisses. It does not include veterinary care, hospitalization or any "extraordinary" expenses which are managed separately via a general fund. If you would like to instead contribute to that fund, please reference the Donations page to send a contribution in the amount of your choice.
Won't you consider a sponsorship? Or perhaps your 4-H group, Girl Scout, Boy Scout or school class might be interested in taking up the cause! We also welcome visitors - not only those who wish to help out around the farm, but also those who wish to meet their sponsored llama.
You can sponsor several llamas for a month or one llama for several months. Multiple sponsors may be required to ensure a specific animal is taken care of for the year. The name of the sponsor(s) will be reflected in association with the llama (or llamas!) you have sponsored and a graphic will show how many months of sponsorship each animal has accumulated, so you can tell who might need a bit of a financial boost relative to the others.
Many of these animals are compromised in one way or another and it is a sad fact that some could die before their sponsorship funding is depleted. If this situation arises, you will be immediately notified and remaining sponsorship funds will be shifted to the animal of your choice or to the general care fund, depending upon your wishes.
These animals represent the ones with few options - nowhere else to go and few people equipped to handle their care. Please help us provide them the life they deserve through your generous donations.
|Prince William (Prince) RIP - This fine Gentleman endured a a level of tradgedy during his 10 years old that many would not be able contend with. He was attacked by dogs, losing a large part of the muscle structure on his left rear leg. After several surgeries and during a long recovery period, he was bitten in the same area by a rattlesnake, causing additional permanent nerve damage. He spent a number of years contending with R foot neuropathy and infections that resulting in forcing the Brandon's to choose amputation and a commitment to a labor intensive aftercare. Our Prince made it out of surgery, but didn't have the strength for another fight. We will miss you and you will always be in our hearts. Please think about giving in Prince's memory to the many others here that need the level of care Indian Creek offers.||

|Zorro is a young llama who had never been touched until we put a halter on him to move him to the Sanctuary. He is extremely cautious with people and after being at the Sanctuary for some time, still will not let anyone touch him.||
|Madam X was pregnant when she came to the Sanctuary from a Georgia petting zoo. She has no front teeth, cannot graze normally and requires supplemental feeding.||
|We didn't know a lot about Bob's background at first, but had since learned he is from a farm in East TN. He came to the Sanctuary with dropped pasterns and lives in a pasture where he doesn't have to move long distances from pasture to barn.||
|Apricot has general aging problems. She suffers from arthritis and has poor teeth. Because she cannot browse properly, weight is a constant problem and she requires supplemental feeding.||
|Buster came to the Sanctuary through the Scott County courts. When we found him, he was in a small pen with no food, shelter water. His health has improved and stabilized, but he is extremely wary of people.||
