Join us for the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch’s biannual open house in Murchison, Texas (see below for directions).
Meet rescued chimpanzees and other primates; horses and burros; bobcats; iguanas and African tortoises; antelope, deer, ostriches, llamas; American bison; and dozens of other species now living lives of peace and compassion.
The ranch is the largest animal sanctuary in the country, and the facility is only open to the public four open house days per year and during special events.
All activities are free, but donations are appreciated. Because we are a non-profit, donations are tax deductible and are used to provide direct care for the animals. Children of all ages are welcome, but please let your pets stay at home as they aren't allowed on site.
