Wild Animal Sanctuary

We went to the Wild Animal Sanctuary a few months ago.

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.


  1. Pretty pictures.. you are ALIVE Jenn! its good to see you posting again.

  2. I love the brown bear! He was just curious. Those tigers are so beautiful. Nice photos!

  3. Thanks Monica! (Yes I am alive and well :)).

    ECL, isn't the brown bear so cute. I want to cuddle him (probably not the best idea :)). We stood there for about 15 minutes watching him go back and forth.
