Become a “PEAK Pal:” 
Monthly Sponsorship

Monthly sponsorship is a great way to play a role in the life of a rescued farmed animal and support PEAK’s work! As a “PEAK pal,” you’ll help cover the daily care costs like feed, bedding, on-going medications, and preventative veterinarian care (yearly shots, fecal exams, etc.) for one of our residents. Even better, you will foster a special bond with your animal pal.

Please review FAQ regarding animal sponsorship below.

As a PEAK Pal you’ll receive

  • A beautiful packet including a picture of your sponsee
  • Certificate with a little info about the resident’s history and varied personality traits
  • A PEAK magnet (perfect for your car, fridge or you know… places you put magnets)
  • VIP visitation with your special animal pal by appointment during the year
  • A one-year membership to the Sanctuary which includes:

» Free admission for you and two guests during Visiting Day (May-October)

» Eligibility to book the Retreat Suite or our Eco-Friendly Cabin

» 10% off anything in the PEAK store (online or in the gift shop)

» Opportunity to purchase event tickets before the public

An Uplands PEAK membership is activated with a donation to our Membership Campaign.

A membership is valid for the year it is purchased only and must be renewed each year following.
(Ex: If you buy a membership in July 2020, it is good for all of 2020 and then you renew in January 2021.)

 

PEAK is part of the Kroger Community Rewards Program! You can support PEAK’s residents with every purchase using your Kroger Plus Card across much of the state of Indiana.

People sponsor animals for a variety of reasons. Some want to reconnect with a particular species for whom they have fond childhood memories, others bond with an animal through a PEAK visit, and some people want an animal in their lives but can’t have one in their homes. For all, sponsorship is a meaningful way of connecting with our mission and providing the on-going support we really need.

Yes! We encourage you to visit your animal with advanced notice, contingent on staff availability. Kindly give us at least 72 hours advance notice for visits.

An animal may have more than one sponsor. However, all sponsorship funds are used for the care of PEAK residents.

In the heart-breaking instance that your animal pal passes away, we’ll notify you, invite you to continue your sponsorship, and help you choose another special friend or allow us to assign you a new one.

Uplands PEAK is the only farmed animal sanctuary in Indiana and one of the few in the “middle” portion of the country. We are located in the middle of animal agriculture where support for farmed animals is needed most.
