Adopt an Alpaca

Three is not a crowd! Meet Providence Ignatius

Ignatius “Iggy” born May 22, 2019

Providence Sullivan and Cowboy Jimmy are pleased to announce the birth of their son, Providence Ignatius, the afternoon of Wednesday, May 22, 2019. Mother and cria required virtually no assistance and are doing just fine.
Ignatius was named in celebration of our ongoing relationship in service and learning with Jesuit schools, the University of Scranton and Creighton University. These students bring the spirit of St. Ignatius of Loyola to us each year and give much appreciated service to White Violet Center and the broader SP ministries and community. We think St. Ignatius would be proud of them. The name was offered by one of this year’s students. She also suggested we call him Iggy. It seems to match his personality!


Providence Tracy Dawn

Providence Tracy Dawn born May 21, 2019

Providence Olivia and Providence Stardust are delighted to announce the arrival of their girl cria, Providence Tracy Dawn, at 8:40 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. She  is named in honor of Tracy Wilson of Aris Farm. 

Tracy served as herd manager for the White Violet Farm Alpacas herd for more than 13 years and continues to provide professional services with love, skill and care to our herd. Olivia needed assistance in getting the cria in birth position last night and Tracy was right there to help her.

Tracy Dawn is the second of four crias to join our herd this month!


Providence Jean Raphael entered the world by c-section at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7.

Alpaca adoptions make great gifts

For each adoption you’ll receive:

Adoptions are for one year and cost only $100. We’ll send your adoption to you or directly to the recipient. They make great gifts for children, grandchildren, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers – anyone who loves animals! You can also visit your alpaca sometime during the year. What great memories you’ll make!

Besides being a unique gift for your loved ones, the Adopt an Alpaca program has been a blessing to the Sisters of Providence. Your support helps our ministries so we can continue to grow.
