Amazing Animals Inc. was established in 2009 as a federally licensed 501(c)3, to help raise funds to offset the cost of the many reptiles the founder was saving. We wanted to share our knowledge and passion for the animals that we loved and cared for. We started out with about 30 reptiles in our central Florida home. For 5 years we were educating throughout the community in schools, nursing homes, daycares and at birthday parties spreading conservation messages and raising money to care for the reptiles. One day we receive a call to take in 5 birds. That day we became a bird and reptile rescue.
In 2014 we outgrew our little home in a neighborhood and we moved to a 2.5 acre facility in Saint Cloud, Florida. We wanted to take on the growing need for a sanctuary with exotic mammal experience and space. There we started building big exhibits for bigger animals. Mammals started coming in and we were ready to give them a home. We started taking in foxes, monkeys, kinkajous, bobcats, and many more.
Today we are home to over 100 exotic rescued animals and we reach over 100,000 annually people at the sanctuary and within the community.
To inspire conservation through hands on education.
To be the spark that ignites the next generation to protect wildlife and wild places.
Conservation of wildlife and wild places is our biggest passion. We conserve Florida’s native wildlife by removing invasive species from South Florida and we are starting breeding programs for some endangered, threatened, and at risk animals from around the world.
Education is another key ingredient to conservation. We travel throughout Florida spreading our passion for conservation. We teach people of all ages, from all walks of life about the importance of animals and habitats and how it’s our job to protect the natural world around us.
Sanctuary is our final key ingredient. We are building a facility where all animals can come and enjoy their entire lives with plenty of food, enrichment, and space. We strive to create a peaceful, clean, and natural atmosphere for our ambassador animals living with us.
