The Wildlife Waystation is a 160-acre private animal sanctuary located in the Angeles National Forest just north of Los Angeles, California. We are home to over 400 wild and exotic animals comprising over 125 different species. Our dedicated staff and volunteers are devoted to providing a place of refuge, healing and safety for animals in need. Our sanctuary is supported solely by the generous donations of individuals and foundations worldwide. Yes...lions, tigers and bears OH MY!!

“We take the animals that other people don’t want, or cannot care for any longer, and provide them a healthy home for the rest of their lives.”
~ Martine Colette, Founder of Wildlife Waystation
Always in need of animal sponsor's, donations and volunteers...
Wildlife Waystation was incorporated in 1976. Since then more than 76,000 injured, abused, abandoned and orphaned animals have made their way through our gates. Many of the native California wildlife have been successfully released back into the wild. Those who could not, as well as the exotic animals such as lions, tigers, and primates have become permanent residents at our sanctuary.
Currently, with over 400 wonderful resident animals, we need dependable and caring volunteers who can commit themselves to the Wildlife Waystation Volunteer Program.
Please note volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and make a commitment of eight (8) hours per month.
Our volunteers have a vital role at the Wildlife Waystation. There are many opportunities to become involved, including:
- Education and outreach teams:Educating the public through school programs and outreach at events
- Helping with fundraising activitiesand special events
- Assisting with ranch maintenance, enclosure cleaning and deep cleaning, providing a clean, healthy home for the animals
- Joining the animal enrichment teams
- Becoming a docent,to guide private tours and tell the stories of the residents and what it takes to care for them each day
- Green team:landscaping, planting, brush clearing

- Special work parties, enclosure updates and creation
..and much more!
