Programs: 1. Sanctuary: We provide a permanent sanctuary to captive-born wildlife, exotic and alternative pets.
2. Animal Rescue: We are called upon by animal shelters and animal control to phenotype wolfdogs and place a variety of alternative pets and exotic animals that they cannot or will not try to find homes for.
We provide wildlife and animal related educational programs to schools, community organizations and clubs throughout Colorado.
We partner with the Colorado State Park system to provide Interpretive Programs at some of the parks throughout the summer months.
Through our Kids and Critters volunteer program a number of Middle and High School science, wildlife and youth groups experience the human/animal bond first hand at the sanctuary.
We partner with PIMA and Pikes Peak Community College to offer externships to students who desire to learn more about animal care.
The Companions for Life outreach program worked one-on-one with 150 private pet owners to help them take better care of the pets last year.
