About Us

GODOT ANIMAL SANCTUARY, founded in 1991, is a Federal and State Certified Charitable Organization for Animal Welfare and Rescue.

We are dedicated to the care and welfare of abused, injured, displaced, and disabled animals of both domestic and wildlife species.

We strive to foster respect, kindness, and responsible stewardship for all living creatures.

GODOT ANIMAL SANCTUARY is situated on 160 acres located in the rolling hills of western Pennsylvania.


The Sanctuary, named after 'Godot', a favorite pet, and the first of many animals rescued by the founder, is currently the permanent residence of over 300 domestic animals, and a refuge for area wildlife.
