In 1962, the Yellow River Game Ranch became the first-of-its-kind establishment in Gwinnett County providing a home for injured or orphaned wildlife, as well as a place where hundreds of families came to interact with deer, rabbits, goats, and more. Not only did it become an iconic venue in the area, but it also served as a treasured experience and memory to its many guests.

With the help of talented curators, keepers, staff, and volunteers, the Yellow River Wildlife Sanctuary promotes animal appreciation and provides wildlife education. We continue to work closely with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Department of Agriculture to ensure everything we do is in the animals' best interest. Our plan includes various programs for schools, home-schoolers, and the general public. Our goal is to provide the animals with enrichment activities, high-quality diets, and well-maintained habitats. We thank all of you for your support and generosity and hope to see you soon!
