Mission:

Indigo Mountain Nature Center's mission and goals are multifaceted. The primary mission is to provide the highest quality of care to animals in need of permanent sanctuary. Additionally, Indigo Mountain works with rescuers across the country to aid in re-homing animals that have been surrendered. The Center also focuses on wildlife education through its outreach progams to state parks, libraries, schools, community organizations and clubs.

Geographic areas served:

US

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. 3. Education: 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.

I tried to find a place that would take my sugar gliders for months. When I finally found Indigo Mountain I was so happy. This group does a great job! They took the time to answer all my questions and didn't make me feel awful for having to surrender my pets.

This is a great sanctuary. They work tirelessly to give the animals everything they need from huge places to live, good food and a great life. I was a participant in the Kids & Critters program last year. I had a great time working on the enrichment project our group was given and learned so much about the animals. Thank you to Carol and Sue for allowing us to be part of such an awesome place.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

2010.
