Nature / Park · Hidden Gem · Ranch
Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch consists of over 1,400 acres where more than 800 domestic and exotic animals find sanctuary and will live the rest of their lives in peace. Many were rescued from near-death situations such as slaughterhouses, biomedical research laboratories, and trophy hunting ranches. Others are discards from circuses or roadside zoos, or were former victims of the exotic pet trade. Still others have come from public lands where they were threatened with extermination by the federal government. The ranch is not open to the public, but you are encouraged to attend our Ranch of Dreams tour, or one of our other events. Please visit our Facebook events page for more information.
