Promised Land Zoo in Branson, MO was created by Jeff and Diane Sanders, as well as their five children, after they moved to a small farm in Eagle Rock in the early 1990’s from Chicago. For most of the 1990’s, the farm was used as a breeding facility for select in danger of disappearing forever and rare animals until the Sanders moved to a farm that was built in 1997 specifically for those efforts. At that time, the family decided it would be a great idea to open their gates to the public to share the animals, and so the Promised Land Zoo was born.

Since then, the zoo has grown and changed over time to include more animals and many rescued animals in need of a home. The Branson location of Promised Land Zoo was built in 2012. The park was founded to focus on education, preservation, and interaction with the animals for the thousands of guests that visit each year. The park helps increase health for shows in a good way with the highest standards of animal care, and employs mostly wildlife managers, people who try to reduce pollution and protect the Earth, and scientists who study living things to care for the animals.
