The Shelter Animal Reiki Association is a global community of more than 250 members and 75 shelters, sanctuaries and rescues — and they’re celebrating 10 years!

In 2008, 20 people and five shelters came together to form the Shelter Animal Reiki Association (SARA). Their goal was to bring Animal Reiki meditation to shelters and rescues around the world. Over the past ten years, they’ve turned that goal into a reality. Today, SARA is a global community of more than 250 members and 75 shelters, sanctuaries and rescues.

Animal Reiki meditation creates a peaceful healing environment within animal care settings – and SARA provides the tools shelters and rescues need to make it happen. The non-profit organization has over 1,000 staff and volunteers, all trained in the ethical and effective Let Animals Lead™ approach created by Kathleen Prasad, world-renowned Animal Reiki expert. This Reiki method is ideal for rescued animals who have suffered from stress, abuse or trauma.
