TWAS Project Update!

Thanks to your kindhearted support of the The Wild Animal Sanctuary's GlobalGiving project, "Help over 520 Rescued Lions, Tigers, & Bears", we have been able to continue our important mission of rescuing captive-bred large carnivores from situations of abuse and neglect, provide them with large-acreage habitats, and educate the public of their plights and the Captive Wildlife Crisis. None of this would be possible without people like you! For that, we are eternally grateful.

 

We'd like to regularly keep you updated with the goings-on at the Sanctuary, and how your donation has made a difference in the Animals' lives. Since our last emailed update, there have been a number of new occurences at both the Sanctuary and the Refuge. One of which being the construction of a new large-acreage habitat at the Refuge for our infamous, overweight, and charismatic Asiatic bear friends, Dillan and Lily.

 

Dillan and Lily both came from similar "living" situations, where they were kept in tiny, cramped, concrete cages, and were fed only unhealthy scraps, which lead to morbid obesity. While their histories are tainted with sadness, their present day lives at TWAS are full of happiness and relaxation (also some major weight loss!). They were placed in a habitat together due to their uncanny similarities, and have been the best of friends ever since. While they are thriving at the Sanctuary, there is great opportunity for more room to roam and be free together at the Refuge, where they will have a custom-built, large-acreage habitat just for them. We are elated to transport them to their new home in the near future, and to continue sharing their success story/updates with the world.

 

There is so much more we'd love to share with you, so to learn more about Dillan and Lily (as well as many other exciting updates about the Sanctuary), please visit the link below to read our Fall 2020 Newsletter! Thank you again for your generosity and love for the Animals.

Thanks to your kindhearted support of the The Wild Animal Sanctuary's GlobalGiving project, "Build Habitats for Rescued Lions, Tigers, & Bears", we have been able to continue our important mission of rescuing captive-bred large carnivores from situations of abuse and neglect, and provide them with new large-acreage habitats at our 9,600+ acre Refuge in Springfield, CO. None of this would be possible without people like you! For that, we are eternally grateful.

 

We'd like to regularly keep you updated on our progress with habitat contruction, and how your donation has made a difference in the Animals' lives. Since we began this project through GlobalGiving, there have been many changes in the world. While all of humanity has been dealing with the COVID-19 Crisis, we have had to adapt and continue our life-saving and pertinent work for the Animals. Through the darkness, there has been some light, including the recent build of a 50-acre tiger habitat at the Refuge.

 

With the immense physical help of GreaterGood.org's Rescue Rebuild program team, we were able to quickly and efficiently build this habitat for 7 tigers we rescued from a deplorable life of small, over-crowded cages and malnutrition at the hands of Joe Exotic. Their new home is equipped with tanks full of cool water, natural caves, an abundance of trees to prowl through, and ample space to run and be free. We have you to thank for helping fund this project and make the tigers' new home a reality.

Since we began this project through GlobalGiving, there have been many changes in the world. While all of humanity has been dealing with the COVID-19 Crisis, we have had to adapt and continue our life-saving and pertinent work for the Animals. Through the darkness, there has been some light, including the rescue of 3 innocent (and very cute!) Grizzly bear cubs: Charlotte, Oliver, and Charity.

 

These 3 cubs have been through enough stress and heartache to last a lifetime. They lost their mother due to a terrifying location transfer, and only had each other for comfort. Their irresponsible keeper, looking to avoid prosecution, surrendered the cubs to the Columbus Zoo in Ohio. While the zoo of course would have taken excellent care of them, they decided it would be best for the cubs to begin their lives at a Sanctuary with ample space and resources to provide them with all they deserve. Charlotte, Oliver, and Charity have since been thriving at the Sanctuary! They are slowly acclimating to their new large-acreage habitat together, romping around and splashing in the pool, and eating their fill of nutritious food. It has been a joy for staff, volunteers, and our visitors to see.
