Colorado is home to the country’s oldest and largest wildlife sanctuary dedicated to carnivorous animals. The 720-acre facility in Keenesburg was founded in 1980. The sanctuary was founded to rescue captive exotic and endangered large carnivores that have been abused, abandoned, illegally kept or exploited. The goal is to give these animals a better way to live and to educate people about the cruelty they are put through such as beatings and starvation.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary is home to nearly 300 lions, tigers, bears, leopards, mountain lions, wolves and more. It is open daily at 9 a.m. and closes at sunset. There is a fee to enter, $15 for adults and $7.50 for children 3-12 (they are a public non-profit much like the Humane Society, these fees help with expenses). Once your tour begins you will hop on what they call the ‘Mile into the Wild’, a walkway system spanning over more than 300 acres of animal habitats.
