Sounds of Silent Spirits is a 501 C3 charity started over 10 years ago when our two founders, Deb Henggeler and Regene Fonville, saw the desperate need to secure a permanent sanctuary for injured Desert Tortoises. This endeavor expanded to become a home for unwanted, or abandoned reptiles, and birds. But we we never turn away a special needs animal. To date we have over 50 tortoise and turtle enclosures that mimic each specie’s natural habitat. Our other rescues consist of horses, goats, pigs, dogs, cats, and a variety of Birds. Although Sounds of Silent Spirits has accomplished a great deal we still have lots to complete at our Sanctuary in Lucerne Valley, CA. We need to build a few more aviaries, horse stalls, a winterized area for our hibernating Tortoises/Turtles, a new indoor snake and lizard habitat, and a new roof on the Barn. We encourage and rely on your donations of time, money, and animal supplies of all kinds.
