A Walk on the Wild Side
Portland Wild Animal Park
A Walk On The Wild Side is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to helping all species of wild animals who, for various reasons, find themselves without a place to live out their lives. We are the most diverse exotic non-profit animal refuge of its kind in the State of Oregon. In addition to housing unwanted exotic species, we pride ourselves in educating the public about responsible animal ownership. Our ambassador animals attend numerous public events every year, and each one has its own story to tell and its own lessons to teach. We absolutely love the work we do and believe in our quest to provide the best care and quality of life for our animals.
Feel free to look through our site to learn more about who we are and what we do. You can see our current and upcoming events by visiting our bulletin board or reach out to us on our contact page. We would love to hear from you!
