RESCUE EFFORTS

 

NO RESCUE IS TOO LARGE OR TOO SMALL

As an educational sanctuary with a focus on the human-animal connection and our part of this world, we work tirelessly to educate in an effort to lessen the need to rescue. We gear our rescue efforts toward helping those well-established organizations that specialize in rescue in relation to natural or man-made disasters. Zoology Foundation will work with these organizations to provide support and logistics in emergency rescue situations.

Our sanctuary is at capacity at this time, but we want to help place animals that may be in danger. If we have the space available, we might be able to bring an animal into our sanctuary where they stay for life. If not, we can help find a safe place for them to stay as a fostered animal or transport them to a sanctuary that has the space and capacity to care for them. If we take more animals than we can handle, we become part of the problem; as we will fall into a situation where we cannot properly care for our animals and educate our children. We must stay true to our mission to educate and assist whenever possible.

The program is designed to RESPOND quickly in an emergency, RESCUE animals and their caretakers, REPAIR damage done, and RETURN animals and their caretakers to their homes and sanctuaries.

There are many well-established organizations that deal with animal rescues due to natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, wildfires, and drought, as well as manmade disasters such as puppy mills, hoarding, financial crisis and law enforcement seizure due to abandonment and neglect. Zoology Foundation will work with these organizations to provide support and logistics in emergency rescue situations.

 

PREVIOUS RESCUE MISSIONS

In 2010, a herd of Icelandic horses were dumped at a feedlot outside of Yakima, WA to be sold for slaughter.We sent our Rapid Response Rescue team to buy 23 of the horses and bring them to sanctuary in Colorado, where they were cared for and trained until they were all adopted into loving homes.

In 2011, several hundred horses were trapped in a remote valley on an enormous ranch in Montana during record snowstorms. Zoology Foundation bought two semi-truck loads of hay, delivered them to the ranch, and chartered helicopters to get the hay to the stranded horses. The herd survived.
