Location:  Sliver Springs, Florida

Forest Animal Rescue by Peace River Refuge & Ranch is a lifetime care sanctuary for non-releasable wild animals. The animals we rescue come from lives of abuse or neglect and have almost always narrowly escaped being destroyed for lack of a place to go.

The animals in our care range from big cats to bears, wolves, primates, bats and more.

Our residents have been confiscated by authorities, used in research, abandoned to starve, or have been attempted pets that failed because of their wild nature. Here they have space and peace that they need to heal and thrive. They are given the best in veterinary care, a healthy diet, and playmates of their own kind as appropriate. They regain confidence as their bodies gain strength, and they learn to appreciate the humans who have come to their aid.

Are you a student enrolled in an animal-related college curriculum and would like to gain experience in captive wild animal care? This may be the place for you!
