What is Peaceful
is a home-based animal rescue, located in Fluvanna County in
Central Virginia. Our vision is a world where no animal has to be
euthanized because of age or medical challenge, where a quality of life
consider my work with animals to be a "calling."
I believe our choices in life are driven by who we are; what we need to feel complete. In that respect, my choice to work with animals is driven by a need to advocate for a "voiceless" population, our animal companions. It is a personal and spiritual mission to serve the animals that have graciously chosen to share their lives with me. I have been a human companion to animals for over forty years. I am a person who cares deeply for the well being of all animals, and has found a special calling to work with senior and hospice animals. The insight that I bring to the mission of animal service has been acquired over time and can be learned by anyone with the desire to do so.
