The Shy Wolf Sanctuary's mission is to provide sanctuary for exotic animals in need of rescue and refuge, while screening and re-homing those better suited to family life.
To educate the global community about the needs of these animals, how they come to be in rescue, and the role and importance of their wild counterparts in order to create empathy and understanding of the lessons they have to teach, and how each person can make a difference in the world around us.
If they are forced to re zone, moving to a new facility it will require a few months and a successful capitol fundraising campaign.
This is extremely difficult to undertake while funding continuing existing operations and care for the animals in a hard economy.
The Sanctuary will need and is actively seeking sponsors to assist with the transition and completion of the new facility.
However, if it is allowed to remain open in it's current location it will make things easier for the owners to continue to provide care for their animals and a fun and unique hands on educational experience for the public that helps to fund the animals care.
Closing them down and forcing them to re-locate would be a terrible disservice that they're doing to the people of this community and the animals! Please help them to stay open by signing this petition and writing letters to the people in charge of Collier County.
If you keep it open to the public, the animals, their care-takers and the people who enjoy visiting them and learning about them will thank you!
