Program:   Randy Smith introduced Diane Gibason, a volunteer with The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg.

America has a “Captive Wildlife Crisis!” There are estimates as high as 30,000 captive Great Cats, Bears and Wolves living in substandard conditions throughout the US. In fact, after illegal drugs and weapons, the exotic animal trade is the third largest source of illicit profits in America…and in the world…today!

The Wild Animal Sanctuary, TWAS, is all about saving animals who are victims of America’s “Captive Wildlife Crisis!” We criss-cross the United States and Mexico, rescuing captive exotic and endangered large carnivores who have been abused, abandoned, exploited or illegally kept. We have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles to 42 states (to some states many times) on rescue missions… and down into Mexico over the years as well… saving animals from dreadful circumstances, and bringing them back to live in the wide open space of large acreage habitats where they have plenty of space, exceptional diets and proper veterinary care, for as long as they live.
Our goal for the animals we rescue is to give them a life of dignity and respect, and make their life like it would be if they could choose it. TWAS also works tirelessly to educate about the causes of…and solutions to…the Captive Wildlife Crisis.

Who We Are
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. We are located outside of Keenesburg, Colorado, 30 miles northeast of Denver (link to map). We are located on rural, rolling grasslands, comprising 720 acres and sheltering more than 290 large carnivores. TWAS is the largest sanctuary of its kind and one of the oldest in the United States.

For the past 31 years, The Wild Animal Sanctuary has responded to nearly 1,000 requests from private citizens and government agencies to rescue animals from across the United States, and also in Mexico. Our resident animals were abandoned, abused, illegally kept, or were victims of other terrible situations. Many of them were considered “pets,” and were confiscated by law enforcement officials for being kept illegally. Others were surplus animals from zoos and other wildlife facilities, where they faced euthanasia due to over-breeding or overcrowded conditions. Our 290 residents include tigers, African lions, black bears, grizzly bears, mountain lions, leopards, wolves, servals, bobcats, foxes, lynx, coyote and coati mundi.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary’s mission is to rescue and provide life-long homes for large exotic and endangered captive wild animals, and to educate the public about the causes of, and solutions to America’s captive wildlife crisis.               Listen to Diane Gibason .mp3
