Our Mission:

Sanctuary Tour was founded as a platform to support sanctuaries around the world. Our mission is to connect humans with animals by sharing and highlighting the work of animal sanctuaries, activists, and Earth loving organizations around the globe, cultivating a more compassionate, awake world. Through art, cooking, volunteering, and a podcast, Kim Beller strives to bring awareness to the plight of animals used for food.
Sanctuary Tour – the podcast features conversations with the founders, directors, caregivers, and volunteers from different sanctuaries around the world, as well as anyone who works to promote a more peaceful world through compassionate actions or activism, to highlight the work they are doing, the stories of the animals they rescue, and how we can support them and their work. 

Sanctuary Tour is an organization whose mission is to provide a platform for, and to support those who are striving to make a difference for the planet and for the rescued animals, while also providing a network for sanctuaries to share vital information about animal care and running a sanctuary by forging authentic relationships with each sanctuary we visit and connect with. We believe that sharing information is crucial for the animals and their care.


Sanctuary Tour works to support, connect, and advocate for animal sanctuaries around the world. Through networking and relationship-building, Sanctuary Tour supports sanctuaries both monetarily and by providing the necessary connections needed for sanctuaries to place rescued animals, share stories and needs, and attract more visitors. We are building a network—more and more sanctuaries are connecting with us to share their needs. Often, this work is behind the scenes, but no less valuable to the animals needing support. Through a unique approach of building authentic relationships and connecting with sanctuaries around the world, Sanctuary Tour is able to recognize direct needs and organize help for each individual situation and sanctuary.  Traveling to sanctuaries around the country, making face-to-face connections with both humans and animals, and providing a platform for these sanctuaries to share their stories on the podcast enables more people around the world to connect with sanctuaries and their animals.  Millions of people listen to podcasts; it is estimated that 48 million people listened to podcasts weekly in 2018, and 115 million people are expected to listen to podcasts by 2021. We are confident that we will continue to impact more and more people as Sanctuary Tour grows.
