In addition to our rehabilitation work, we also provide long-term care to a variety of North American mammals that cannot be returned to the wild. For these animals, we focus on providing facilities that meet their specific biological and behavioural needs. We do not receive any government funding and our work is sustained through the generosity of the public
Most rehabilitation centres do not have facilities to provide lifetime sanctuary care to a variety of different species in a natural setting. Most of the animals in permanent residence are here as a result of human interference.
Some were kept as illegal pets, others are here because they were injured or orphaned at a young age and became too habituated to humans to be released. Some have medical needs that would make it impossible for them to survive in the wild.
Our permanent residents are maintained in enclosures and habitat that keep them safe and are according to their specific needs. We hope they are happy here, too!
You can support Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary by sponsoring a permanent resident.
