Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation
Juliana’s Animal Sanctuary is at the forefront of animal rescue and rehabilitation in the country. Since 2006, we have rescued and rehabilitated over 3000 animals. Our current property sits on approximately 40,000 square meters in Chía, and is home to around 300 rescued animals.
Vegan Cooking Workshops
Juliana’s Animal Sanctuary helps parents and young people adopt a vegan diet through vegan cooking workshops. We teach participants how to prepare easy, delicious vegan meals and provide them with relevant nutritional information.
Since we’ve found that many parents discourage their children from going vegan, these workshops are free and offered to both new vegans and their parents. The only requirement is that every participant must bring along with them a non-vegan member of their family, preferably their parents. We help more than 200 parents learn to support their children’s vegan diet and lifestyle a year.
Maha – Vegan Comic
Maha follows the lives of the sanctuary animals and Quiltro, our hero dog. Featuring the illustration work of sanctuary friend Juan Faundez, the comic educates children about the realities faced by animals raised for food.
The comic reaches about 8,000 people a month. We distribute Maha widely to local cafes and students from schools visiting the sanctuary.
Maha is a pilot project made possible with the support of the Unbound Project. As the comic is translated into other languages, the project will be brought to other parts of the world.
Maha – 3D Visual Experience
The 3-D version of Maha allows viewers to experience the disturbing reality of animals raised for food. There is currently nothing like this in Colombia, and we believe it will have an enormous impact on the public’s awareness of animal rights issues. Currently, we reach about 500 people a month with this powerful project.
