Meet Our Residents
The world-renowned Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch is America's largest and most diverse animal sanctuary, providing a permanent home to more than 1,300 domestic and exotic animals. These animals' histories are not always pleasant. The animals have been abused, injured, homeless, and threatened; they come to the ranch needing serenity, veterinary attention, and access to food and clean water. Here their needs are addressed, and they have a place to live out their natural lives.
Staff and volunteers care for these animals year-round, and the facility is supported by generous donations from the public. Twice a year, the ranch gates are opened to welcome guests who can walk the grounds, take tours, and meet some of the animals they have read about. Please sign up for The Fund for Animals' free monthly enewsletter to keep up-to-date.
