The Faces of Animal Rescue: The Wild Animal Sanctuary

The Wild Animal Sanctuary is the largest nonprofit carnivore sanctuary in the world with over 900 rescued animals including lions, tigers, bears, wolves, leopards, and other large carnivores, plus wild mustangs—all living in their own large natural habitats.

Established in 1980, the Sanctuary operates three locations within Colorado and one in Texas with more than 30,000 acres for abused, abandoned and/or confiscated animals. The Sanctuary specializes in rehabilitating captive wildlife so they can be released into natural habitats where they’ll roam freely and live with others of their own kind for the rest of their days. 

The main facility in Keenesburg, Colorado is open to the public for education every day from 9 a.m. to sunset. Guests may learn about the Captive Wildlife Crisis from a 1.5-mile-long elevated walkway.
