Staples Safari Zoo is a 501(c)3 organization with a mission of introducing America’s youth to our natural world. The zoo cares for more than 120 exotic animals, nearly all of which have been rescued from either private residences or from zoos and other sanctuaries who have rejected the animals because of health reasons or other issues.
Animals are amazing creatures.
From the domestic dog to the majestic lion, each animal has distinct characteristics and an individual personality. And just as a person has to find the perfect pet to fit his or her lifestyle, the right type of place has to be found for exotic animals that are no longer in the wild. Occasionally, an animal has too many health issues or personality quirks to find sanctuary at a traditional zoo. Very often, a personal residence is not capable of providing the proper environment, either.
Staples Safari Zoo gives these often special needs animals a place, nursing them back to health when needed and giving them a voice by introducing them to audiences around the world. Through exotic animal shows at fairs, community events, school assemblies and other gatherings, Staples Safari Zoo is able to achieve its mission of introducing America’s youth to our natural world.
