The Sanctuary is about 40 miles North East Denver. We use the GPS
It is a non-profit organization, who rescue wildlife from across the US, Canada, Mexico, and South America. The animals rescued come from a variety of situations such as illegal pets, zoo surplus, exotic animal auctions, and from facilities closed due to animal abuse.
What's cool about the Sanctuary is, unlike the zoo, the animals are there to stay for the rest of their lives
We walked on the tall elevated catwalks to view the animals.
We saw a lot of tigers, wolves, and bears.
A little pond for the tigers to swim and play.
The tube behind the sitting bear is actually a tunnel, leading to their underground climate-controlled rooms.
The best part of the trip was to see a cute brown bear, who kept coming over to bother the volunteer workers.
