Babette’s Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing sanctuary for animals, both domestic and exotic, who are in need of a safe and healthy home. It is our goal to provide each animal with a healthy, stimulating, safe habitat where they can live in dignity and respect.
Richard and Donna Sandler founded Babette’s Animal Rescue in 2011, after many years of rescuing and giving a safe home to many animals, both exotic and domestic.
In 1995 we took in our first exotic animal, Cookie, a female puma (cougar). Shortly thereafter, we brought Babette home with us from a clinic that was having a very difficult time finding a home for her. Babette was a seven year old female Hamadryas baboon.
Over the years we have taken in more cougars, lemurs, a coatimundi, bob cats, a serval, baboons, domestic cats, and dogs.
If you live near by, and would like to schedule a personal tour to meet the animals in person, please feel free to visit our Contact Us page. Drop us a note letting us know that you would like to schedule a visit. Because the animals have schedules themselves and so do we, all tours are by appointment only. Thank you for understanding.
