Susan and Jim (to the left of Jimbo) are married (to each other) and have been taking care of wildlife and bears for a very long time. They own and live on the land and property where all the animals live ... and they do ALL the daily care and maintenance. There is no other staff, and this is truly a labor of love.
These animals, especially the bears, are not a job. The permanent residents here are truly like their children and are treated and cared for as such.
Kerry (to the right of Jimbo) does all the admin work - Facebook, website, financial and fund raising. She has been friends with Jim and Susan for many years and last year when we decided to become a 501(c)3 she joined in the venture.
While we love to show you pictures of our permanent residents - because we love them so much and they are such wonderful animals - our true mission is to rescue and release animals BACK to the wild. That's what we want to see - these wonderful animals get a little help - and then get back out where they belong!
Thank you for your support and for all your help and kindness! Your comments on our Facebook posts and your happiness at seeing our animals has meant a lot to us !
