The well-being of animals
La Tanière zoo-refuge, which is expected to open in the spring of 2020, aims to create a real haven of peace for animals that have not experienced a peaceful existence
La Tanière is a unique concept for a fantastic cause: 1500 wild and domestic animals and growing. All have a story: abandoned, mistreated or suffering, these rescued animals will find all the comfort and health care follow-up they need at La Tanière to take full advantage of their new life in Grand Archevilliers in Chartres.
Our animals - Latest refugees
At the start of June 2019, these two majestic beasts, nicknamed the King and Queen of the refuge, arrived at La Tanière.
An extraordinary adventure awaited the La Tanière zoo refuge
These small mammals were brought in June 2019 by the Combactive association
