Spot's Sanctuary

Stephen Huneck is an eclectic folk artist from Vermont who welcomes all creeds and all breeds to his doggie chapel. After a near death experience, Stephen Huneck had a vision to build Spot's sanctuary.

This whimsical whittler of dog statues and furniture wanted to create a place where people could go and celebrate the spiritual bond they have with their dogs. He believes that dogs are the 'great spirit's special gift to mankind'

The chapel's interior walls are plastered with posts from visitors who have lost a pet and want them to be remembered. These handwritten remembrances, photographs, and postcards create a very powerful statement.

Degas had his ballerinas. Monet had his water lilies... Stephen Huneck has man's best friend as his muse.
