Edwards Animals is a family owned and operated, no kill, non-profit, large animal sanctuary. It was founded in 2007 by John and Lynda Edwards, both retired teachers and foster parents who love animals and want to make a difference in this world. Our animals come to us from referrals by people and organizations in Colorado. There are many small animal shelters but few that take in LARGE unwanted or neglected animals. We have seen a tremendous increase in the demand for animal care and placement due to the poor economy and the unfortunate loss of jobs in the past couple of years. We currently finance most of the care of the animals out of our own pockets. Lynda is a substitute teacher and John is a night cashier at Wal-Mart. All donated money goes strictly to the care of the animals. Neither John, Lynda or board members take any compensation for what we do.
