Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
What happens when an orphaned sea lion pup is stranded on the shore? Or when animal actors reach the end of their careers? These wildlife sanctuaries in and around Los Angeles rescue and rehabilitate animals and sometimes reintroduce them into the wild—and welcome visitors and volunteers, too. If you’ve ever wanted to pet cute animals like a fennec fox or groom a baboon, set course for these sanctuaries tucked into canyons by the beach, mountain valleys and suburban backyards.
