Our Story

Our Story

Tranquility Trail is a sanctuary specializing in the care of senior and special needs animals. Each animal has a home with us until we find the perfect family for them. Tranquility Trail welcomes visitors on a daily basis so they can learn how to properly care for their rabbits and get ideas for stimulating their curious nature.

Tranquility Trail Animal Sanctuary is a new generation of animal sanctuary. We provide an environment that nurtures each animal. We take care of both the physical as well as emotional needs of each animal. We provide a sanctuary that is peaceful and happy. Our sanctuary is painted in bright colors with soft relaxing music. Each animal receives play time each day in one of our designated play areas. We also have lounging areas where volunteers can help socialize each animal.

Our world renowned youth programs include summer camp, leadership training, reading programs, job training programs, internship programs, therapy sessions for children with social anxiety, fear of animals and much more.

Tranquility Trail offers exceptional programs of rescue, spay/neuter, rehabilitation, adoption, sanctuary, holistic care, community outreach and education, pet parenting support and collaborative partnerships. With an eye to decreasing the euthanasia of adoptable and treatable animals in Arizona, Tranquility Trail works in partnership with the animal rescue organizations in and around Arizona and the southwest.

Tranquility Trail does not receive any federal or state funding. We rely on donations, fundraising programs and our retail pet supply store to support the sanctuary. Every donation we receive ensures that these programs sufficiently serve those animals that are lost, abused, neglected or unwanted in our community.
