Review for Forest Animal Rescue by Peace River Refuge & Ranch, Silver Springs, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Working with wildlife and animals all my life, I have grown to appreciate those that do it right!!!
It is when they do it with the best interest of the animals that I particularly pay attention and recommend supporting them. Forest Animal Rescue by Peace River Refuge and Ranch exemplifies that principle!!. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to continue to work with and support them. One of the best examples of a true sanctuary you could find!!

Review for Forest Animal Rescue by Peace River Refuge & Ranch, Silver Springs, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked as a volunteer with Lisa and Kurt and their extremely competent staff for some 20 years as their veterinarian.
In my veterinary career I have had the opportunity to see a large cross section of animal facilities and sanctuary’s all around the country and have never seen one better run and more focused on what’s really important for the well being of the animals.
I have nothing but the utmost respect and praise for them and a really “true” sanctuary.. they do not put fund raising above the well being of their animals as so often is the case. If you would like to support animal sanctuaries and share that goal, this is the one that I strongly recommend supporting!!

I am a veterinarian. I've known Lisa and Kurt for about a dozen years. I have shared so many good experiences with them at the sanctuary that I don't know where to begin. There is nobody more conscientious, dedicated, or capable than this couple to care for the many animals entrusted to their care after coming from bazaar, abnormal, or abusive situations. I think my most memorable experience was even the most recent project where they received four tigers and two bears from a sanctuary that had been shut down in Colorado. I agreed to be present for the arrival of those animals with the possible need for tranquilization and or sedation to transport and locate them to their new home. Because of the expert handling of those out animals on arrival and the nature of their facility, no tranquilization or sedation was necessary. As I watched them each get established to their new environment --- which is an outdoor spacious location and something completely different than anything they have ever known, it struck me that they (the animals) must have thought to themselves "we have died and gone to heaven". To see a bear or a tiger interact with tree limbs and leaves and bushes which they had never seen before makes me realize again what a phenomenal job this couple is doing in providing lifelong care for some very deserving animals. I can't recommend them or their organization any higher.
