Established in 1980, the wild animal sanctuary is a state and federally licensed zoological facility and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
They are accredited by the global federation of animal sanctuaries as well as the usda and the co parks and wildlife. But a refuge in the small town of keenesburg has brought together one of the largest and most.
