The Wild Animal Sanctuary cares for more than 650 Lions, Tigers, Bears, Wolves and other animals that have been rescued from illegal and abusive situations and provides more than 10,500-acres for them to live on. We operate three world-class sanctuaries for captive wildlife This fund will help us continue to rescue, rehabilitate, and provide life-long homes for large, exotic and endangered captive wild animals and to educate the public about the causes of and solutions to this crisis.
America and the world have a captive wildlife crisis. As many as 30,000 captive great cats, bears, wolves and other large carnivores are living in substandard conditions such as backyards, apartments, tiny cages, garages, crawl spaces, horse trailers, barns and other terrible situations throughout the United States. In fact, after illegal drugs and weapons, the exotic animal trade is the third largest source of illicit profits in America and the world today.
The Wild Animal Sanctuary is all about saving the victims of this crisis. We travel the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Central & South America & the rest of the world rescuing captive exotic & endangered large carnivores that have been abused, abandoned, exploited or illegally kept. Once the rescued animals arrive at our state of the art facilities they are rehabilitated & provided with veterinary care. Thereafter, we provide our rescued animals with a forever home & place them in large natural habitats.
This project will help us continue to save and provide life-long homes for rescued large carnivores living in captive situations. The Wild Animal Sanctuary works tirelessly to educate the public about the captive wildlife crisis to change social consciousness so that people understand that captive large carnivores do not make good pets, and should not be used for entertainment or profit. This is critically important to the alleviation of suffering endured by millions of animals worldwide.
