SEE WHAT WE ACCOMPLISHED IN 2015
WHAT ZOOLOGY FOUNDATION HAS DONE SO FAR
We are focused on the areas of greatest need, on the ways in which we can do the most good.
In 2009, ZOFO created an animal sanctuary at Crooked Willow Farms in Larkspur, Colorado. The sanctuary was built with a focus on creating a nurturing and stimulating environment that provides natural elements for the animals to thrive in, as well as offering an educational opportunity for children to interact and learn about the animals. The sanctuary is now home to over 100 animals that have been rescued or re-homed by the foundation.
In 2010, a herd of Icelandic horses were dumped at a feedlot outside of Yakima, WA to be sold for slaughter. ZOFO sent their 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 valley on an enormous ranch in Montana during record snowstorms. ZOFO 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.
In 2014, ZOFO sent their field team to Georgia to witness the work M.O.M.S. Rescue, Pilots and Paws, and Animal Aid USA were doing in their monthly transport of hundreds of abandoned dogs and puppies in the South, to homes and no-kill shelters in the Northeastern US. Based on the field team's investigation and participation in the puppy transport, several financial donations have been made to keep these organizations and the monthly transport caravan operating.
