Certol Supports the Wildlife Animal Sanctuary near Denver, CO


Certol is donating 34 spent toner cartridges and 2 used imaging units to Laser Concepts of Broomfield, Colorado. Laser concepts will in turn recycle the cartridges, and give the money raised to the Wildlife Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, CO, about 30 miles northeast of Denver. On behalf of Certol, a $100 donation will be made to the Wildlife Animal Sanctuary to help keep the facility running.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary’s mission is to rescue and provide life-long homes for large exotic and endangered captive wild animals, and to educate the public about the causes of, and solutions to America’s captive wildlife crisis.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary is a state and federally licensed zoological facility and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. They are located outside of Keenesburg, Colorado, 30 miles northeast of Denver. They are located on rural, rolling grasslands, comprising 720 acres and sheltering more than 290 large carnivores. TWAS is the largest sanctuary of its kind and one of the oldest in the United States.

For the past 31 years, The Wild Animal Sanctuary has responded to nearly 1,000 requests from private citizens and government agencies to rescue animals from across the United States, and also in Mexico. Our resident animals were abandoned, abused, illegally kept, or were victims of other terrible situations. Many of them were considered “pets,” and were confiscated by law enforcement officials for being kept illegally. Others were surplus animals from zoos and other wildlife facilities, where they faced euthanasia due to over-breeding or overcrowded conditions. The 290 residents include tigers, African lions, black bears, grizzly bears, mountain lions, leopards, wolves, servals, bobcats, foxes, lynx, coyote and coati mundi.
