Welcome to Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary

  where our mission is to provide a healthy recovery and living environment for abandoned and abused exotic wildlife.  Since the mid 1970's, Octagon has been rescuing and rehabilitating exotic wildlife.  With continued support from our volunteers, the community, and donations from visitors like you, we look forward to continuing on with our mission.

Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary is located on Horseshoe Road in Punta Gorda, FL just west of State Road 31.  Visit the 'Directions' link located above for the best driving routes.  Octagon is not affiliated with any other organization in the state of FL or otherwise.  The board of directors are unpaid volunteers as are all the people who care for the animals, the sanctuary grounds, and maintain the website.

All the animals in our care reside here.  To minimize the stress on the animals and ensure their safety at all times, we no longer bring the larger animals to a location for promotional purposes.

Families, seniors, individuals

  - pack a picnic lunch and spend the day at Octagon.  We are wheelchair accessible and have beverages available for purchase.  There are multiple areas to sit, eat, relax, or cool off at the misting stations.  Please check the weather before you come and dress appropriately!


There are no scheduled events at this time.
