There is a problem in the United States. Thousands of large dangerous animals are being kept as pets. Tigers, wolves, bears, and many other exotic pets live in back yards all over the country. Bears are the most overlooked and forgotten animals in the exotic pet trade. There are no bear focused sanctuaries in the United States to care for all of pet bears that need homes each year. When life changes happen, and forces exotic pet owners to give up their animals, where will they go? Zoos and sanctuaries are out of room. Will you help us give these animals dignity before it’s too late?
Bears Etc. was founded in 2017 to be the United States’ first bear focused sanctuary. During the past two years, Bears Etc has reached thousands of people with its heart for captive bears, and leaving the world better for future generations. Bears Etc is raising funds to purchase a home for the bears, and give the "a PEACE of the Wild." The all volunteer staff has raised over $20,000 towards opening the new state of the art facility. We need to raise $40,000 to put a down payment on a property. With your help we can raise the other half of the funds needed, and make 2020 the year of the bears.
