A Lion's Roar
I had the most amazing day at The Wild Animal Sanctuary.
As I drove up to "The Wild Animal Sanctuary" you can see Grizzly Bears on the left. They were playing with each other, so majestic! When I got out of my car, a pack of Wolves were howling away. I knew this was going to be a visit, I would never forget. Nothing beats the experience of the walkway. Hearing Lions roar was truly amazing, I was lucky enough to be there when they were feeding the Lions. What a fantastic organization. The animals seem so happy and content, with plenty of space to roam. I will be back!
Colorado's Wild Animal Sanctuary Recognized as one of Top 5 Animal & Wildlife Welfare Organizations in the World.
The Wild Animal Sanctuary is the oldest and largest nonprofit Sanctuary in the US dedicated exclusively to rescuing captive exotic and endangered large carnivores, providing them with a wonderful life for as long as they live, and educating about the tragic plight faced by an estimated 30,000 such animals in America today.
Established by Executive Director Pat Craig in 1980, Rocky Mountain Wildlife Conservation Center, DBA The Wild Animal Sanctuary, is a state and federally licensed zoological facility and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Originally started on Pat?s family farm outside Boulder, CO, TWAS soon moved to Lyons, CO, where there was more room for the animals, and to provide for future expansion. After eight years in that location, TWAS was forced to move again due to a limestone quarry moving in nearby. The Sanctuary currently sits on 720 acres 50 miles east of Boulder. There is plenty of space for the animals 21 large acreage habitats, along with room to grow while still maintaining large grassland buffers.
TWAS is located near Keenesburg, Colorado.
