For more than 30 years, Octagon Wildlife has rescued over a thousand animals.
As a non for profit, we do the very best we can for the animals we care for.
Octagon is blessed with the most outstanding volunteers, contributors, and support any organization could ask for.
Some of our residents over the years have been cousins to native Floridians such as black bears, panthers, bobcats, and various bird and reptile species.
Other residents, whose relatives come from distant lands, can be found on endangered, threatened, or vulnerable species lists.
Those species who reside with us today are the Amur Leopard (Russian Far East/Northern China), the Serval (Africa), the Brown Bear (Europe/Asia/North America), the Asian (Himalayan) Black Bear, the Bengal Tiger (Southern Asia), and the Ocelot (US/Central &South Americas) just to name a few.
If your organization wants to donate precious time for community service or is looking for an interesting and educational outing – Schedule a visit to the Sanctuary!
Meet those who help keep Octagon’s mission going and have the opportunity to see animals that are often not seen in person or may not be in existence much longer.
Learn about various animals such as:
Large and Small Exotic Cats – Lions, Tigers, Leopards, Panthers, Servals, Bobcats, etc
What a great way to get some fresh air, bring a picnic lunch, and bond with the animals!!
