Paws & Claws Petting Zoo and Animal Sanctuary
Jenn Garrett, owner of the Paws & Claws Petting Zoo and Animal Sanctuary in Illinois, will be attending AquatiFur
as our charity guest. Jenn is raising money to help with the relocation of animals, including exotic fauna, that
are in need of permanent homes. She is also looking to build more enclosures so that her organization can rescue
even more animals in need of homes or help. The sanctuary provides animals with a loving environment and quality
care from its handlers. It is home to an assortment of big cats such as tigers, pumas, and bobcats, and other
creatures from their resident fox Swiper to barnyard animals, including horses rescued from kill pens. Paws & Claws
Petting Zoo and Animal Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 and USDA approved.
Jenn does not only take in animals, but also children who have lost their parents. She is a loving mother to six sons
and currently cares for her autistic nephew on the farm. Jenn states, “I’m so blessed to be doing this.
In my heart, I believe that these animals were born with the right to live out their lives as God intended!”
She‘s current receiving requests to house animals from other sanctuaries due to overcrowding. The sanctuary has
room, but needs to build enclosures large enough to house them comfortably.
