We care for approximately 350 animals every day – 365 days a year. We care for animals ranging from arachnids ( tarantulas and scorpion ) to small mammals and everything in between. We don’t rescue or care for dogs, cats, most birds, or local wildlife. There are many other fine organizations that can handle those animals. We take in and care for exotic animals who’s natural habitat is in another part of the world, usually a tropical environment. These animals can not be set free in our environment, they must be in care for the rest of their natural lives. This can be for a very long time.

How you can help

The animals would love you to sponsor them!! We have expanded our animal sponsorship program. This would make a great gift for an animal lover. It would also make a great teaching tool for a school class or day care. Become a sponsor of one of our 350 rescued animals and it’s only a $100 donation! You will get to choose the animal you want to sponsor for one whole year. You also will get a short video of the actual animal you are sponsoring, an information sheet about the species so you can learn more about that species of animal, a free admission to come visit us at Urban Safari ( when we reopen in mid-June ) so you can visit your sponsor animal in person You also get a tax receipt! email us for more information We will supply you with a list of animals you can choose from.
You can help in other ways. Visit our ‘ WISH LIST ‘ page to see a list of items we desperately need or visit our ‘ DONATION ‘ page and make a donation on line. An official tax receipt will be issued for your donation. PLEASE help us help these unwanted animals and help us educate people of all ages about animals, the natural world, and conservation. YOU can make a difference.
