REHABBED AND RELEASED ANIMALS

Every year Red Wolf Sanctuary rehabs and releases hundreds of native animals.  Since the Sanctuary's beginning in 1979 we have saved thousands of animals.

 

These animals include babies who have been found abandoned or standing next to their dead mothers in the road, birds who have been hit by cars while trying to hunt, as well as animals who have been attacked by dogs.

Rehabilitation is a stressful and expensive task, but there is nothing more rewarding than the release.  Click anywhere on the gallery below to see some of the many animals that we have saved!

Please call us before attempting to handle any wildlife, even babies.  Often times a baby appears to be abandoned when they really aren't.  This leads to many babies being taken from the wild when they don't need rescued.
