Denkai Sanctuary located in Northern Colorado was founded by Floss Blackburn who had a dream to help animals and youth in crisis back in 2004. Since then Denkai has been doing just that at a facility in Grover, Colorado. When the Grover facility was purchased, Denkai was able to successfully raise a down payment and work with the seller to carry the note for them, however, it has been four years and this note balloons in May of 2013. Denkai needs a total of $383,000 to continue with its mission to save animals in need and helping youth in crisis. This is where they really need our help….any size donation would be greatly appreciated. Daisy Paw has donated and if you are able to, as well, it will truly go towards a good cause.

Along with their Sanctuary in Grover, CO, Denkai has recently opened a Veterinary Clinic in Eaton, CO. This clinic provided exceptional subsidized veterinary care for low income pets and their families. Daisy Paw had the pleasure of touring this facility with Floss Blackburn and are happy to say that Denkai will be using are aromatherapy products at this location and others. Here are a few photos of the clinic. If you would like more information about their veterinary services please click here.

Denkai and Floss Blackburn has so much to offer pets, their people, and youth in crisis. If you are ever fortunate enough to meet Floss you will instantly come to realize that although running this non-profit is an enormous amount of work she loves knowing that she is making a positive difference in pets and peoples lives. Here passion reminds me of a quote from Mother Teresa.
The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it.
