Please Enjoy our Animals

The Wildlife Sanctuary currently houses over 40 permanent residents and handles hundreds of temporary guests each spring and summer. Temporary guests are sick, injured or orphaned wild animals brought to us by veterinarians or the general public. Permanent residents are animals that cannot be released back into the wild due to their injuries, background or human imprinting. These animals are housed so they can comfortably and safely live out the balance of their natural lives.

Temporary guests may or may not be at the sanctuary when you come to visit. Even if they are, you won't be able to see them because they must be cared for without causing human imprinting. For example, a bear cub handle for just a few hours quickly loses its fear of humans. When released back into the wild, it will wander into neighborhoods and be targeted as a "problem bear" which may result in its death. You will be able to see our permanent residents and hear about animal conservation and habitat preservation during our private guided tours. Please call 706-276-2980 at least one day in advance to schedule your tour.

These pages are being developed with information about each animal, their natural range, foraging habits, and conservation status. We are pushing to get them completed as quickly as possible. The pages in BLUE are completed. Thank you for your interest.
