Our facility places a premium on quality of life for animals in our care. Over the years, we have built multiple enclosures for hawks, owls, ducks, squirrels, foxes, and other animals so that they can enjoy freedom of movement, along with rest, in a low-stress environment while they heal.
The Polar Vortex made news all over the nation. Here in Colorado, temperatures plunged quickly below zero degrees. Extreme cold poses a great danger to animals, particularly those in care. When we are hit with bad weather, we and our volunteers, move all of the animals into our main indoor facility. This area, however, is not designed to accommodate so many visitors. Things get very cramped, which puts tremendous stress on the animals.
This program will develop a 20’ by 30’ facility to provide a larger, temperature-controlled space for the animals during extreme weather, particularly during the winter months.
In keeping with our long-term vision, this building will not only provide the animals with a more comfortable space but also act as a visitor / intake center, intern and volunteer orientation and training area, as well as, a place for Scouts and volunteers to work on projects.

In the spirit of the holidays, if you’d like to make a donation in the name of a loved one, we will send a digital sponsorship package in their name for donations over $250. This includes a post on our Facebook page with the name of the animal and sponsor, updates on their progress, and release video.
