100 - Food Donation

New! Food Donation Program

Wildlife Waystation is launching a Food Donation Program that will save a million dollars in less than 5 years.

The Wildlife Waystation is a 160-acre private animal sanctuary located in the Angeles National Forest just north of Los Angeles, California. We are home to over 400 wild and exotic animals comprising over 125 different species. Our dedicated staff and volunteers are devoted to providing a place of refuge, healing and safety for animals in need. Our sanctuary is supported solely by the generous donations of individuals and foundations worldwide.

“We take the animals that other people don’t want, or cannot care for any longer, and provide them a healthy home for the rest of their lives.”
