Welcome to Elmira's Wildlife Sanctuary

Elmira's Wildlife Sanctuary is a non-profit corporation supported solely by members and private contributions. There are no paid employees, we're staffed entirely by volunteers. Our mission is providing loving care, life management and enrichment to exotic and wild animals in need of a home. We also provide educational opportunities which increase community awareness of these animals needs.

Volunteers are always needed and appreciated - visit the "Members" section to sign up for one of the most unique and fulfilling opportunities of your life! You'll be glad you did....and so will we!!

Be sure to check out the fun in our FUNdraising events...we would love to meet you!

To come visit our animals and learn more about the sanctuary,
