The Wild Animal Sanctuary


Established in 1980, 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, on 720 acres of rural, rolling grasslands, sheltering more than 450 large carnivores alone! TWAS is the largest and oldest sanctuary of its kind in the World.

Business/Office Events — Such a wide variety of Events to help the animals can be done at the office! Ideas that have benefitted the animals are listed below, and sometimes, offices and organizations have simply raised money for a specific need, or just for the general fund.

  • Potlucks & Silent Auctions — Holiday or any day — share the silent auction winnings with the animals!
  • Drawings — Club or office or anywhere — sell tickets and split the proceeds between the winner and TWAS.
  • Jeans/Casual Day — everybody pays a small “fee” to wear casual attire on a given day, with the benefits going to the animals.

Classes/Scouts/Environmental Youth Groups — We love getting young people involved in learning about and helping the animals. Kids’ groups and classes have done amazing things to help the animals — everything from bake sales, read-a-thons, jewelry and rock sales, car washes, collection of “Wish List” items, poster and letter writing campaigns — the list goes on and on. What would your youth group like to do? Let us know and we’ll send whatever support materials you might need.

Motorcycle “Poker Runs” — You can do these in Colorado, making the Sanctuary one of your stops, or in your own area, if out of state. The benefits go to help the animals, which is great! This works for car clubs as well.

Your own creative idea! Give us a call, 303-536-0118, and we can send support materials to help your event be a big success!

We thank you for helping the animals!
