Dreamtime began in 1997, operating under the umbrella of another equine sanctuary organization to offer lifetime sanctuary to horses and donkeys. They quickly began to include sheep, goats, and pigs; then came the dogs and cats. Current sanctuary residents include 13 horses, 12 donkeys, seven sheep, 14 goats, 11 pigs, 44 chickens, six Guinea fowl, eight dogs, 18 cats, 10 ducks and one goose named Leona. The sanctuary is located on a rural road outside of Elgin, Texas. Here, animals and human visitors alike find new life and hope.
