Join Explorer Chick for an Exclusive and Private Women-Only Texas Animal Sanctuary Experience!! 🦁

Not only do you get to spend time around these animals, but you also get to help make their life a little better!

The Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch is a world-renowned, non-profit animal sanctuary with over 1,400 acres. Founded by author and animal advocate Cleveland Amory in 1979, it is now home to more than 800 domestic and exotic animals! 🐒

Most of the animals have been rescued from near-death situations such as slaughterhouses, biomedical research laboratories, and trophy hunting ranches. Others have been rescued from roadside zoos or were former victims of the exotic pet trade. 🐻 Others came from public lands where they were threatened with extermination by the federal government.

Your day will kick off learning about the Ranch and include an Instructional Safety Briefing.

Then we will split into groups where you will be assigned to multiple areas of the Sanctuary! 👩‍🌾 You might find yourself preparing monkey diets, mucking equine stalls, general maintenance of the facility, or feeding the farmed animals. It all depends on what needs to be done the day of your Mini. Hey, we’re here to help!

Halfway through our day, we’ll meet up for a yummy, Plant-Based, catered lunch. In the afternoon, we’ll mix up the groups giving everyone a different experience!

After helping around the sanctuary, we’ll spend some time off our feet enjoying a Private Guided 1-Hour Bus/Truck Tour throughout the grounds! Don’t worry. The natural habitat and the animals will not be disturbed!
