Transforming stress into tranquility
SARA brings peace to shelters and their animals through meditation.
The Shelter Animal Reiki Association (SARA) is a worldwide grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of shelter animals and their caregivers through proprietary meditation techniques.
Donate to SARA today and become a partner with us in supporting shelter animals through:
Our field-tested techniques have consistently supported stress management in the shelter environment and thus increase the chances for adoption. Our meditation based techniques create peace and calm for animals who may be stressed and/or have difficulty acclimating.
The unique work shelter staff and volunteers do can take its toll, and shelters sometimes find they lose the best people all too frequently. Our members train staff and volunteers in easy to use, powerful techniques that combat compassion fatigue. The best part is that training only takes a couple of hours but the effects are transformative.
Our teachers, who are experienced in shelter environments and are certified in the proprietary Let Animals Lead® method of meditation, provide team building workshops. We give staff and volunteers an extra tool in their toolbox to help animals as well as a way to support each other!
SARA consistently donates over $100,000 USD per year in volunteer hours, classes and fundraising donations to sanctuaries, shelters and rescue centers.
WORLD WIDE REACH:
SARA has a worldwide network of members who are effectively using our methods for the comfort of animals in shelters, sanctuaries and rescue centers.

Watch this video to see how effective our techniques are for bringing peace to a stressful kennel environment:
The importance of an animal’s sense of well-being cannot be understated. Animals can have food, water, shelter, and exercise but still be depressed. They can be surrounded by other animals and people and still feel sad and alone.
SARA’s proprietary meditation techniques transform:
Sadness to Happiness
Overwhelm to Confidence
Suspicion to Trust
Our techniques differ from any other modality because we allow the animal to guide the process. We don’t control or dictate what’s happening thereby empowering the animal, sometimes for the first time in their lives, which creates the foundation for a happier, more confident future.
