Safe Haven Rescue Zoo is a non-profit exotic animal rescue sanctuary and native wildlife rehabilitation center located near Unionville, NV.

Safe Haven Rescue Zoo rescues native wild animals that are found injured, orphaned, or abandoned. When possible, the animals in our care are rehabilitated and released, healthy and wild, back where they belong.

Those animals that could not survive in the wild, or not deemed releasable by the state of Nevada, can live out their lives at our accredited sanctuary. We don’t buy, breed, sell or trade animals, nor are the animals for hire or used for commercial purposes.

Unlike some sanctuaries who “cherry pick” residents for appearance, variety and donor appeal, Safe Haven routinely accepts the neediest animals, often elderly or compromised. Safe Haven has cared for a fox with seizures, an FIV+ cougar, arthritic animals, blind and neurologically impaired residents, an African lion suffering the long term effects of malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies – the list goes on. Although many sanctuary and wildlife rehabilitation facilities would have euthanized these animals due to cost and difficulty of care, Safe Haven is committed to lifelong quality care. Every effort is made to ensure that each individual has the specialized veterinary services and staff support for a happy, healthy lifetime at Safe Haven.

Safe Haven Rescue Zoo is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which is run by a very small staff and many dedicated volunteers. We are funded solely through private donations, fundraising and grants.
