The Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch is a world-renowned animal sanctuary in Murchison, Texas that was founded in 1979 by author and animal advocate Cleveland Amory. The sanctuary is home to almost 1,000 animals of over 40 species, many of whom were rescued from various situations of a buse, neglect and exploitation. The sanctuary is not a zoo; however one Saturday each month, we are now offering guests the opportunity to attend a pre-scheduled, exclusive, guided, educational tour of the sanctuary that respects the peace and privacy of the animals.




  • Starting Saturday, January 26th, 2019, repeats every month on the 4th Saturday until Saturday, June 29, 2019 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
