The Humane Society of the United States’ Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch is America’s largest and most diverse animal sanctuary – home to former victims of research labs, entertainment, agriculture, canned hunts, and other cruelty.
The ranch is not a zoo and is open for public visitation only during special events. Amory’s vision for the sanctuary was that it is “a place where the animals are looked after, not looked at.”
Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch is a world-renowned animal sanctuary in Murchison, Texas, operated by the Humane Society of the United States in partnership with the Fund For Animals.
At around 1250 acres we are home to more than 1,100 domestic and exotic animals, many of whom have been 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.
Bison and cattle, horses and burros, antelope and apes, camels and llamas, all have a permanent, safe home at the ranch, which was founded in 1979 by Cleveland Amory, author and animal advocate.
The Doris Day Horse Rescue and Adoption Center, located in Murchison, Texas on the grounds of the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch, is an innovative facility that rescues and rehabilitates abused and neglected horses, and ultimately helps place them with adopters who can provide them with safe, permanent, loving homes.
