This Saturday the world-renowned Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch in Murchison, Texas, hosts its first Wild Impact Volunteer Experience for people over age 18 who are interested in helping animals and experience life at an animal sanctuary. 

Participants spend an exciting day working alongside of dedicated animal care and facilities staff and get a rare behind-the-scenes look into what it takes to care for more than 800 residents.  The Wild Impact Volunteer Experience includes a plant-based lunch with the staff, and a bus tour around the 1,400 acre property where participants see the sanctuary’s resident primates, horses, bears, burros, bison, tortoises, tigers and dozens of other species living a peaceful, safe and healthy life.

The event starts at 7 a.m. and goes until 4 p.m. Tickets are $99 per adult. For more information and to register, visit Spots are limited and tickets must be reserved in advanced.  No one under the age of 18 is admitted.

According to Noelle Almrud, director of Black Beauty, “While we are not open to the public on a regular basis out of respect for the animals, we do want to give people the  opportunity to visit and see the important work that we do here every day to care for over 800 animals and over 40 species.”

Visitors are encouraged to bring supplies of all kinds including gently used toys, cleaning, landscaping, office supplies, and other items to donate to the sanctuary.
