Rocky Mountain Wildlife Conservation Center - now operating as “The Wild Animal Sanctuary”- is located just outside of Denver, CO and is a state and federally licensed zoological facility. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (tax deductible) and operate with your donations and the help of very dedicated people who volunteer their time. We have been rescuing exotic wildlife and endangered species since 1980, and are currently home to more than 155 Lions, Tigers, Bears, Jaguars, Leopards, Mountain Lions, Lynx, Bobcats, Servals, Wolves, and other wildlife.
The residents of our Wild Animal Sanctuary were abandoned, abused, illegally kept, or came from other terrible situations. The vast majority of our animals were so-called “pets” - and were confiscated by law enforcement officials - usually within the first six months of their lives. We also provide permanent refuge to surplus animals from zoos and other wildlife facilities, where they face euthanasia due to over-breeding.
