Mission: Montana Large Animal Sanctuary & Rescue, Inc., was founded in 1996 to address the needs of large domestic and exotic animals whose lives were no longer valued due to age, infirmity, or lack of humane care by previous owners. Our equine population is a significant indicator of the 'disposable' mind set overriding more admirable character traits in our yet uninformed fellow humans. Fluctuating market values of exotic animals continues to create a rescue situation for breeds such as llamas, pot-bellied pigs, and emus. MLAS&R offers these animals an alternative to needless death and/or lives of misery and suffering.

This sanctuary is closed and no longer exists. Funding dried up and there was no longer an ability to feed and provide health care for hundreds of animals. Over the course of several months, starving animals were removed from this sanctuary to other sanctuaries, foster homes and permanent homes. The evacuation costs were over $100,000.00 in donated funds and does not include costs associated with rehabilitating the animals.
