Mission Statement:

"Keepers of the Wild is a nonprofit sanctuary dedicated to the dignified rescue of exotic animals. Internationally recognized, it is our goal to build a facility that will be the standard for all future animal parks...

... with educational and research facilities that span all ages; and diverse programs that offer our visitors artistic and cultural experiences indicative of the countries that our animals come from. We will keep to the high "no breeding" standards that we started with and strive to make the public aware of the challenges faced by some of the world's most exotic and beautiful animals."

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Keepers of the Wild....
is a non-profit sanctuary dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of neglected, abused or endangered exotic animals. The preservation and protection of these wonderful, animals is paramount in our hearts and minds.

For many of the animals, this is their last chance for a life of peaceful coexistence with man. Their last hope... as with Sabu , before and after arriving at Keepers of the Wild.

Keepers of the Wild provides a clean, safe and loving environment for over 150 exotic animals, including lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars, cougars, wolves and other wonderful animals. Each of these animals have their own history of how they became a member of the Keepers of the Wild family. At Keepers of the Wild, these animals have been given the chance to recover and live happily ever after and despite their respective backgrounds, have even learned to trust people again. When rescued, these animals become a part of our family. We love, nourish and care for them as if they were our children. Because in reality...they are.
