Everglades Outpost Wildlife Sanctuary is a nonprofit wildlife sanctuary dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of wild and endangered animals. Throughout our years of service we have also grown to become a valuable partner in raising awareness, appreciation and understanding of wildlife and natural resources by educating the public. We were founded in 1992 and have become Florida's largest nonprofit alligator sanctuary (housing over 550 alligators that would have otherwise been euthanized), and are South Florida's largest nonprofit sanctuary (housing over 650 animals that would have otherwise been euthanized). We have provided shelter and care to thousands of animals throughout the years, and have created successful volunteer programs. All of the animals at our sanctuary have been confiscated from illegal or abusive situations by FWC, USDA or simply abandoned at our sanctuary. We are licensed on a federal and state level and are authorized to go out on rescue calls.
Our mission is not funded by the state or Miami-Dade County. We are contingent on the generosity of our community to ensure that our mission does not stop
