Overview:SALI is a new innovative organization that serves at-risk children and at-risk animals in Surrey, Langley and White Rock. SALI's Farm provides a safe haven for at-risk children and rescued farm animals to bond, learn and heal with one another. Young children who have witnessed or experienced violence attend SALI's Farm and engage in animal-assisted activities. Our farm program is rooted in the realization that one of the most common components of violence is a lack of empathy. Caring for animals teaches the children empathy, non-violence, and that all living beings deserve to be loved and cared for. Our goal is to break the cycle of violence.
SALI's Guardianship Program provides for the needs of companion animals women and children fleeing violence, seniors living in isolation, and people living in poverty and on the street. SALI believes that all members of our community deserve the love and support that pets give us. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life of our most vulnerable community members.
