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 who have been rescued from near- death situations.

The sanctuary is not a zoo but is open to the public for tours and volunteer events. You can join Explorer Chick for an Exclusive and Private Women-Only all day Experience at the sanctuary. The group will get to have a hands-on experience, with the opportunity to prepare diets, muck stalls, or feed farm animals—depending on what needs to be done! No experience is necessary.

Along with helping our animal care teams out, you will get a yummy plant-based lunch and a private tour of the grounds. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!
