Nestled in the rolling hills of Middle Tennessee, lie the 95 acres of beautiful green pastures and wooded wildlife haven of Xanadu Animal Sanctuary. It is currently home to approximately 100 local wildlife critters and 22 rescued farm animals and dogs & cats. Today, more than ever, animals are exploited and treated inhumanly for no real reason other than sheer greed. Animals serve us - as labor, as food, as clothing. The least we can do is serve them and provide them with a good life in return; not the factory farming conditions so many of them are exposed to. Our mission is to provide sanctuary to these exploited animals. Xanadu is truly a magnificent exotic place-a safe haven for abused, neglected, undernourished or injured farm animals and wildlife; and in addition, we offer wildlife rehab and educational interactive programs for people interested in Animal rescue. We cannot change how their journey began or the suffering they endured, but we can teach them to trust again and offer them a safe place and all the time in the world to heal. It is our honor to serve them, and serve our mission—saving them all, one at a time.
