For years the iconic barn at Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary has supported the rehabilitation of a variety of animal species. However, as we continue to grow and provide care for a higher number of animals, the barn has aged and become a high traffic area. Since wild animals require a calm and quiet environment to reduce stress and human habituation during rehabilitation, this means that the barn is no longer ideal for the purpose of rehabilitation.
To improve the quality of rehabilitation for our animals, we have begun building an isolation building that will meet the rehabilitation needs of the wild orphans who would have previously been rehabilitated in the barn. The features of this building include: 5 modifiable rehabilitation rooms to meet each animal's specific behavioural and medical needs, isolation from noise and high-traffic areas of the centre, improved ventilation, increased natural lighting, and heat/AC to allow for year-round use. We are asking for you to join us by donating to help provide an improved rehabilitation environment for injured and orphaned wild animals in time for this very fast approaching busy season.
