Frequently Asked Questions
when to Call the SPCA
I’ve seen a llama and it looks really thin and I don’t think it’s receiving enough food or proper care. Will you come and rescue this llama?
A: No. The Llama Sanctuary does not have such authority to take the property of another. If you believe that an animal is suffering from abuse or neglect, call the SPCA or the police. The Sanctuary can then assist under their authority and direction.
If life takes an unexpected or undesirable turn, there may be an urgent need to find a new home or a temporary home for your llamas or alpacas. Contact us. We do our very best to connect you with someone who can help you or if necessary, we can move your herd to The Llama Sanctuary whilst a new carer is found.
Evacuation of animals due to forest fires, floods and other environmental situations is becoming more common as Earth Changes occur in these times. The Llama Sanctuary can provide short term care for animals and herds displaced by evacuation. This is for camelids only. We cannot take dogs, cats, goats, sheep etc.
Situations sometimes arise where people suddenly find themselves unable to care for the animals they love. Retirees are welcome at The Llama Sanctuary, where you are welcome to visit and spend time in the beautiful parkland setting with your friends. We do ask for donation(s) sufficient to meet all needs for the life of the animal(s), which is in the order of $1200 per year per animal.
What should I do now?
If you are new to llamas or alpacas, you might have a thousand questions that arise: How do I catch her? I have heard that an alpaca can die if the halter is not correctly fitted… Do they always require shearing? Help! He’s jumping the fence! She won’t let me cut her toenails ….and on and on.
Ask. We’re here to help.

Be a Llama Advocate
Once upon a time, The Llama Sanctuary was small and relatively easy to maintain. As the Sanctuary has expanded, so the amount of time available to post updates on Facebook and other Social Media sites has decreased, but we are still there. You could help The Llama Sanctuary enormously by becoming our social media advocates! Follow Us, Like Us, Love Us, Tweet, Pin, Post or whatever you can to bring attention to camelids in need. Blessings to you!
