Five Faces of Animal Care
A chimpanzee, two horses, a fisher, and a lion—five animals who found sanctuary at our care centers
Kitty the chimpanzee: Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch, Texas
Kitty and Alvin were two of the many animals on the Black Beauty Ranch grounds that were prepared to face the wildfires recently raging in Texas.
You can visit Kitty and the other animals at ranch by attending our fall open house on Saturday, October 15, rain or shine!
Maxine the mare: Duchess Sanctuary, Ore.
Maxine lives at our 1,120-acre facility south of Eugene, Ore., that was established in 2008 as an oasis for about 200 formerly abused, abandoned, neglected and homeless horses.
Glory the mare: Doris Day Horse Rescue and Adoption Center, Texas
Glory is one of the lucky rescued horses currently at our Doris Day Horse Rescue and Adoption Center, located in Murchison, Texas on the grounds of Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch. The innovative facility rescues and rehabilitates abused and neglected horses, and ultimately helps place them with adopters who can provide them with safe, permanent, loving homes.
The fisher: Cape Wildlife Center, Mass.
This fisher was in the process of being rehabilitated by the staff at our Cape Wildlife Center in Cape Cod, Mass. when Hurricane Irene recently came calling. The staff prepared this little guy and all the animals at the center for the storm and went on to weather the hurricane safely.
Samson the African lion: Fund for Animals Wildlife Center, Calif.
Samson is one of the 40 full-time residents rescued from the exotic pet trade and other acts of cruelty at the Ramona, Calif. facility. We also treat injured and orphaned wildlife with the goal of releasing them back into the wild.
Meet the 70,000 newest residents to the center in this short video.
