Alexander

Abandoned in a cage with no food or water, he now spends his days lounging in the sun.

Alexander was part of an exotic pet rescue in Atchison, Kansas. He was one of about a dozen dangerous wild animals who had been abandoned by their owner—left without food or water in cages that were inadequate in size and security.

Alexander is now being cared for in a safe environment at the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch.

Midge

Freed from the lab, he now spends his days playing and laughing with his own family.

Midge was rescued from a research facility where he lived for 22 years. During that time he spent nine years confined to a cage and routinely infected with Hepatitis B and other live viruses.

Midge has left the lab behind him and is now a member of our chimp family at the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch where he enjoys playing with magazines and racing around his enclosure.

Penelope

Abandoned by her owners, she now enjoys belly scratches and mud pools.

Penelope is a pot-bellied pig who was found wandering down a street by animal control after her owners abandoned her.

Penelope now spends her days foraging for tasty goodies and wallowing in her favorite mud pool at the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch.

Sahara

Saved from the slaughterhouse floor, she now spends her days hanging out with her horse pals at our sanctuary.

Sahara was saved from an Illinois slaughterhouse in April 2007. She was one of thousands of horses who are targeted every year for slaughter to meet the demand for horse meat in Europe and Asia.

Sahara now lives a peaceful and secure life at the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch.

Hannah Shirley

Rescued from a cramped and inhumane backyard enclosure, she now spends her days relaxing in her own natural pond.

Hannah Shirley – a 40-year-old Pygmy Hippo – was discovered in 2002 living illegally in the suburban backyard of a private citizen.

Luckily for Hannah Shirley, she was rescued and transported to The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center, where she has a 13,000 square-foot paddock, complete with a swimming pool and a natural pond to play in.
