The following links and resources have been helpful to us in our pursuit of wellness for the animals at Unmistaken Stars Farm Sanctuary. Many of the animals we have rescued came to us with a myriad of issues that have been healed by holistic practices as well as behavioral challenges that have been remediated with humane training practices.  

We hope you will have a look at these resources to help you help your beloved companion.

Be blessed!
