Llamas in Need of Sponsors
Sponsorship is a great way to get more personally involved with a llama that needs your help. Perhaps you aren't ready or able to take a llama home, but one of them has already stolen your heart. Or maybe you just like to have a bit more say about where your donation dollars are spent.
At the SWLR Sanctuary, we have several llamas who are not yet ready for adoption because of health or other issues. In some cases, a llama may be considered "special needs," requiring additional time in the facility or needing medications or other treatments.
You can help! Your donation can be earmarked for any of these llamas and will contribute directly to the care of that animal. You'll also receive an "autographed" picture and a Sponsorship Certificate for your llama, and we'll let you know about "your" llama's progress.
I came from a ranch with my herdmate, Carmelita, where the owner died. I've been retired due to my age.
I give kisses. I am called Mrs. Jones after the song "Me and Mrs Jones" 'cause I am such a love bug, especially for Darry. He adored me from the minute we met. I'd never been handled or touched and didn't know what it was like to have human contact, but I grew to adore him as well. I'd see him coming toward my pasture and I would run to him and every time he would sing "Me and Mrs. Jones" to me.
I've been retired because I'm down on my pasterns.
Gus is a gelding who is retired from a goat farm. He is a sweetheart but has some unusual behavior (rushing to greet people). He likes visitors who bring carrots. His behavior has improved with being around other llamas as he was a lone guard for 13 years or more.
I'm 28 years old
