Welcome to The Burrow

A spiritual safe haven for those who love animals.


Welcome to The Burrow! Our online platform and physical spaces are a place for Zoos and Therians to come together to take care of their mental wellbeing and to grow spiritually. As Zoos and Therians, we are an integral part of the world's history, and we believe that those who love animals should be proud of our many names and ancient and far-spread roots.

We understand that our journey as Zoos and Therians is a deeply personal and sometimes difficult one, which is why we respect the privacy of all our participants. We offer a safe and supportive environment for everyone to share their experiences, offer support and guidance, and learn from each other. Our aim is to help you feel confident, strong, and connected to a positive community of like-minded people who share your passion for animals and their wellbeing.

We offer a variety of resources and tools to help you take care of your mental health and spiritual growth, including interactive sessions, activities, and teachings from different spiritual practices from around the world. Some of these activities take place in person as part of a group or one-on-one, in addition to the those available online. Some of our activities include:

At The Burrow, we believe that taking care of yourself is essential to your relationship with yourself and the animals you love. We welcome everyone from all backgrounds and experiences, so come join us and let's grow together!

Who is holding this space?

The Burrow is run by Kumukemai, a member of the Wixárika People. He has been trained in Lakota style ceremonies as well as the medicine practices of his own People. He has practiced Theravada Buddhism in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hahn since 2016.


To ensure that we create a safe, positive, and supportive environment for all members, we have established the following guidelines. These guidelines are designed to help us prioritize the wellbeing of our members and their animals, focus on building community, respect each other's privacy, and participate positively. By following these guidelines, we can all work together to create a community that supports and uplifts each other on our collective journey towards animal freedom and happiness.
