Meet the Animals

The sanctuary provides a compassionate 'no-kill/no-breed' haven for abused, neglected and unwanted exotic animals. A safe caring place in which they can live out their days in a healthy, natural environment with a good quality of life. We also rescue, rehabilitate, and release injured wildlife. Wildlife that cannot be released may become goodwill ambassadors for their species by participating in educational programs.
Here are some of over 100 animals we currently have.
