Wildlife Rescue and RehabilitationSave Injured & Orphaned Wildlife
Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary is a wildlife sanctuary in McCall, Idaho that specializes in the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned wildlife and provides native habitat and natural conditions that help rehabilitated wildlife assimilate back into the wild upon release.
What Drives Us
Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary’s mission is to rehabilitate and return injured and orphaned wildlife to the wild; and through its sub-programs, to provide hands-on educational opportunities for our youth and communities in order to promote a healthy coexistence with wildlife and our ecosystem.
What we do
Our Programs & Services
If you find an injured animal in need of assistance, please contact Snowdon. We will provide medical care and rehabilitation for injured wild animals until they can be re-released into the wild.
Snowdon provides veterinary care as well as a safe space for injured wild animals to rehabilitate before being released back into the wild. We also provide sanctuary for injured animals unable to go back to the wild.
RELEASE BACK TO THE WILD
Once an animal has received all the care it needs to become strong enough to be released back into the wild, our team will take the animal to a safe natural location and release them back to the wild.
Snowdon offers off-site interpretive programs throughout the year. Various topics are available including Falcons, Owls, and Black Bear Awareness. Programs are offered at no cost to the public, but donations to cover travel expenses are very appreciated.
