Habitats at the refuge are being built in harmony with the natural surroundings and general topography that exists.  Throughout the property there are endless numbers of canyons with offshoots heading in every direction.

In order to build numerous habitats we follow the natural contours of the land and fence around individual features.  This 35 acre habitat was built for two Tigers and one African Lion.  The three had been raised together and were rescued as a trio - so they wanted to continue living together in this massive 35 acre habitat.

Here's the same 35 acre habitat from a different angle...

Underground dens are provided for all the animals with the entrances being embellished by natural stones.  These dens go down 6' underground and have a 40' tunnel leading to their sleeping chamber - which is full of wood chips and soft straw bedding.

Closer look at den entrance...

While fencing around the individual features, we stay out of the main drainage areas and flood ways to protect each habitat's integrity.

The end result is a wonderfully forested habitat where the animals can explore, play and relax to their heart's content...

Our 41-acre Boyd, Texas Site

Previously operated as a non-profit Sanctuary identified as the International Exotic Animal Sanctuary, Inc, this 41 acre facility is located in a heavily wooded area just west of the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

It features numerous 3 to 5 acre Bear Habitats, where nearly 40 bears can romp, explore and play.  Other areas of the Sanctuary feature large enclosures that are built for big cats, Wolves and numerous smaller animals like Ocelots, African Servals and Bobcats.

The facility is not open to the general public, but Active Supporters can visit on special days.


The Sanctuary features wooded habitats for Bears and large enclosures for the Tigers and other big cats living there.  The large trees provide shade during the summer days, and water misting systems help keep the enclosures cool during the warmer times of the year.

The facility has numerous animal care staff, as well as many volunteers and a robust intern program.  Up to 8 interns live on site while learning and training to care for large carnivores. 

Having special weekend each month where supporters can visit helps demonstrate the mission and programs we have in place.  Active Supporters can tour with staff and see how the animals are thriving in their natural enclosures.

Our 23,000-acre Craig Site

The Wild Horse Refuge’s mission is to provide a home for wild horses that have been captured and removed from their natural habitat due to increasing BLM roundup situations. The Wild Horse Refuge in Colorado is dedicated to preserving the freedom of wild mustangs and horses by allowing them free-range access to over 23,000 acres of natural space.


This safe haven offers a unique opportunity for these horses to return to their natural rangeland, complete with natural features such as rocks, trees, hills, buttes, bluffs and water. However, what truly contributes to the safety, happiness and good spirits of these horses is their individual freedom.


Upon arrival, new horses are typically tired and disoriented after spending almost a year in cramped and severely restricted corrals at government holding facilities. But once they regain the ability to run free, they exhibit great enthusiasm by running, jumping, bucking, and kicking!


Be a part of something bigger than yourself by purchasing an acre of land at The Wild Horse Refuge!
