Safe Haven Rescue Zoo is a non-profit wild animal sanctuary located on 160 acres in Imlay, Nevada. They work with the USDA, state and local authorities and many national organizations to offer permanent housing/care and rehab/release programs for orphaned, injured, or confiscated wild animals. The zoo is currently home to bobcats, cougars, African lions, tigers, African servals, foxes and more. Many of the animals have arrived from illegal breeding sites or abusive conditions. Medical care is provided for all animals to provide  a better life. Their captive animal enrichment program has been consulted by other national and worldwide sanctuaries.
