    Detailed Information:
    The animals that come to our sanctuary are given permanent homes and most have come from situations that were potentially harmful for the animals. We do not sell, transfer or give away any of the animals we rescue and they are not used for breeding; we simply protect them from harm. Our highly trained staff ensures that their medical, nutritional, and emotional needs are well met. With help from our supporters, we are able to provide permanent habitats for these animals on our 90-acre compound.

    There are many other kinds of facilities who keep exotic animals, including zoos, breeders, attractions and parks, pet owners, placement or adoption shelters, and even hunting ranches. These facilities are distinguished from TRUE sanctuaries in that their income is derived from the animals they have. True sanctuaries, by their very nature, can derive little if any income from the animals because the needs of the animals come first.
