First wild animal sanctuary in Belgium.

Wild animal Sanctuary De Zonnegloed vzw safes animals from gruesome imprisonments and gives them a place to recover. We make sure they can live together with conspecifics in spacious and appropriate enclosures.

If you would like more information about our sanctuary, what we do and the many ways of how you can help, or if you would like to visit us, please follow the links above or below. We are always delighted with like-minded people who join our mission to save wild animals.


A visit is only possible from Wednesday to Sunday by appointment (online booking). You can choose a place in the morning or afternoon.

Recognised as European shelter/ Wild Animal Sanctuary by the European Alliance of Rescue centres and Sanctuaries.
