Sara’s Sanctuary is a Federally Licensed 501 (c) 3 non profit Exotic Animal Rescue Facility
USDA # 91-C-0094
Sara’s Sanctuary was created to provide abused, disabled and neglected animals, a quiet, predictable, safe and loving home. Something many of them have never known before.
We are not a petting zoo, or road side circus – we are a rescue facility. We are not open to the public; our enclosures are designed and built for the animals needs and not public access. Because of their backgrounds, many of the animals can be unpredictable and react negatively around people they are not familiar with. It can take months for them to put their trust in their caregivers.
We support the rights of all animals. We strongly believe that exotic animals & wildlife should be born in the wild and stayed there. Because of human involvement, that option is impossible for too many. Animals are bred and sold every day into private ownership – from exotic cats to bears, primates to foxes, deer to raccoons, squirrels to skunks and even the often misunderstood little opossum – basically any mammal, bird or reptile you can think of. It is very disheartening to see the sad and filthy situations many of these animals are left in after being forced into human hands, totally dependent for even something as basic as clean water. The exotic bird trade is one of the most prolific in the animal industry. Birds were born to fly and yet so many of them will ultimately end up sitting in a small cramped cage in someone’s home with no attention or care.
We believe all creatures deserve the same care and quality of life, no matter what size or shape it is. Providing that has always been our first priority.
Meet a few of the wonderful critters who have found their way to our doors.
