Reborn started in early 2017 with a small passionate team that came together after working and volunteering at the largest wildlife sanctuary in the country. We saw first hand how serious the wild animal trade is and their exploitation, and know there are still thousands of animals living in horrible situations across the world that still need a loving, life-long home. We saw the importance of creating another refuge to give them just that.
ARMANDO MARTIN II, President & Founder
Armando holds a Masters of Science in Humane Education and a graduate certificate in Non Profit management. He has always been passionate about all Animals. The past few years Armando has worked closely with wild Animals as an Animal keeper at the largest carnivore sanctuary in the country, gaining invaluable experience providing care for more than 475 Tigers, Bears, Lions and other carnivores. During that time he acquired, not only the skills needed for animal care, but all operational aspects of running a successful animal sanctuary. Armando and his lovely fiancé Brittany enjoy life with their two Cats Tippy and Muffy, aka the rulers of the house.
