Our Mission Statement 


Animal Nation is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to eliminating cruelty to animals while promoting compassion and respect for all living beings.


Our Vision & Guiding Principles


At Animal Nation we hope for a change in culture that promotes the health and well-being of all who reside on earth. At the heart of our organization, you will find a fundamental reverence for all living beings, regardless of species.


Our guiding principles reflect who we are as individuals and as an organization. They provide clear direction for our actions and motivate our volunteers by forming a common bond. We pledge to live these values day in and day out.


Our Story 

In 2001, our organization was founded by Elle Jill Doornick and focused on providing wildlife rehabilitation and rescue services while educating the communities in their catchment area. Since that time the organization has expanded to include domestic and farm animal rescue, adoption and sanctuary as well as humane education and community outreach programs.
