|Broadbent Wildlife Sanctuary was founded in 2002 by
former Kentucky Legislator, Mary Ann Tobin. The 3,500
acre Sanctuary is located in Central Kentucky on the
outskirts of Irvington. We are a state and federally
licensed 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, and rely on
donations from caring individuals and businesses to operate.
|At Broadbent education is very important. All staff
members attend continuing education classes to stay
abreast of new medicines, treatments and techniques.
|We plan to open an educational center in 2012. This will
provide an opportunity for people of all ages to observe
wildlife in a natural setting, and learn to respect and
cherish Kentucky's most wonderful natural resource;
|Public education is also important to us. Our educational
programs are geared toward different age groups and
include information about the different species,
environmental factors that effect them, things we can all
do to make a difference and what to do if you find an
injured or orphaned wild animal.
|Broadbent rescues sick, injured and orphaned wildlife
throughout the state of Kentucky. Providing food,
housing, medical & surgical treatment and compassionate
care to all our patients through out the rehabilitation
process. Those who, for medical reasons, cannot be
released become Educational Ambassadors and assist us
with programs for area schools, camps and civic
organizations. We also provide a haven for abandoned
and abused exotic birds/animals and horses.
