Sara’s Sanctuary is a Federally Licensed 501 (c) 3 non profit rescue facility for Captive Born Wild Animals.
USDA # 91-C-0094
Sara’s Sanctuary was created to provide a lifetime home to abused, disabled and captive born wild animals. We give the animals that come to us 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 strictly a rescue facility. We are not open to the public; our enclosures are designed and built for the animals needs and not for public viewing. 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, even years for these animals to put their trust in their caregivers, this is a bond that takes time and dedication.
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 has been bred and sold, and many times illegally. It is very disheartening to see the sad and filthy conditions many of these animals are left to live in. They are totally dependent on their owner for something as simple and basic as clean water.
We believe all creatures deserve the same care and quality of life, no matter what size or shape it is. Providing the best care for the animals that come to live at our Sanctuary, will always be our first priority.
