The Folsom Zoo is a safe haven for many rescued animals, providing for animals that are not able to be released back into the wild. Some have been “pets” that proved to be too wild or were confiscated as illegal. Many have suffered injuries that would make life in the wild impossible. Some were captured as “problem animals”. All are treated as individuals and offered the best environments for their needs.
None of the animals are bred, sold or traded. Once there, these creatures will be given the best care possible. The animals always come first and they will be loved and supported their entire lives. Occasionally animals temporarily spend time at Folsom prior to finding a permanent home. Foals rescued from Premarin pharmaceutical production are examples of such an exhibit.
Each year the city, staff, Friends of the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary, volunteers, and community members work to make this haven even better. There are now new and improved exhibits and several new animals. Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary has gained an international reputation and remains the pride of Folsom and the surrounding communities.
