In 1979, The Fund purchased 85 acres to house hundreds of burros rescued from the Grand Canyon. Today our Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch is a national animal sanctuary that has grown to 1,300 acres with four lakes and a dozen ponds and brooks. It is home to nearly 1,300 animals rescued from cruelty and abuse, including chimpanzees, burros, horses, bison, camels, and many others.
The ranch is a specialized operation located in east Texas. Open houses are held twice a year, when visitors can see the facilities and rescued animals first hand. Check out our Facebook events page to learn more »
Even if you can't attend the open houses, there are many ways all year long in which you can help care for the animals, who will never again be forced to perform, entertain, or work.
