The Wild Animal Sanctuary currently operates four facilities within the United States. Three of our Sanctuaries are located within Colorado - while our fourth one is located in Texas.
Keenesburg, Colorado Sanctuary
Craig, Colorado Refuge
Springfield, Colorado Refuge
Boyd, Texas Sanctuary
Combined, they encompass more than 33,000 acres!
Each of our facilities have incredibly unique programs that rescue animals from horrific captive situations and rehabilitate them so they can live and roam freely within large natural habitats with others of their own kind.
We care for more than 750 Lions, Tigers, Bears, Wolves, Jaguars, Cheetahs, Leopards, Mtn. Lions, Camels, Mustangs and many other species of animals!

Currently, there are more than 20,000 Lions, Tigers, Bears, Wolves and other large carnivores living outside of our zoo system in America.
These animals can be found in people's back yards, basements, apartments, garages, roadside zoos and other terribly unnatural places.
There are no places for them to go other than a Sanctuary like ours where they can be given a new life free from exploitation and abuse.
The vast majority of animals we rescue have never been able to walk on grass before... or run... or even sleep on a natural substrate.
Once they have been rescued and rehabilitated, they get to live and roam freely within natural habitats for the rest of their lives.
The Sanctuary travels across America and into foreign countries around the world to rescue animals that are suffering.
Each rescued animal is rehabilitated and released into large natural habitats with others of their own kind.
Their remarkable recoveries lead to a life filled with friendship, love, freedom and joy!

What makes the Wild Animal Sanctuary so different than other sanctuaries around the country?
FREEDOM to ROAM!
What else makes the Wild Animal Sanctuary so different?
We cater 100% of our care to match each animal for who they are and what they have experienced in life before ever coming to our Sanctuary. As a result, through a highly specialized rehabilitation process, we change each animal's life for the better!
