Babies Grow Up!!

 There’s nothing cuter than a baby bear, which is why some people purchase them as pets. The reality is they grow up to be a 300-pound omnivore that can eat up to 30-50 pounds of food per day. As a result the owners find they do not have the means to take proper care of these animals. Our three-acre bear enclosure will provide abandoned bears a place to run, play and swim.

4 Black Bears (Ursus americanus). All 4 black bears were ‘pets’. The oldest, Pocahontas, is 30+, the youngest (Maumee) was confiscated from an apartment when she was less than 1 year old. We currently have 3 females and 1 male (neutered prior to coming to The Red Wolf Sanctuary)


What's Happening Now

When we get in an injured/orphaned raptor we try our best to get them in good health to return to the wild. We continue to work towards building this Raptor Center so that the Bald Eagle Liberty "AKA" Brooke (rescued from the Brookeville area), along with other injured birds of prey will have a place to spread their wings on the road to recovery. The first phase of this several phase project is to build the "Flight Cages" (the wings) as soon as possible to give our birds a place to not only heal but to regain their strength as well. It is estimated that each phase will cost $5,000.
