Wildlife sanctuary

A home for the unfortunate wild animals

The Zoo of the Pyrenees foundation is an non-profit organisation. We welcome and take care of wild animals bad treated or hurt. If it is possible, we release back to the wild the most healthy and strong ones.

But sometimes releasing them back to the wild it will be a death sentence. In that case, we give them a new home in our wild animal refugee. Depending on the animal they can participate in educational activities oriented to the public or we give them a chance to breed in captivity. If the breed, we can release their babies.

Why Zoo and not animal refugee?

Why zoo
Rescue and rehabilitation of injured or abused animals
Breeding and releasing young animals back to the wild
Wild¡life refugee for the ones that can not go back to the nature.

Who are we

We are a family that share our home with wild animals that are hurt or bad treated by people.

If we can not rehabilitate the wild animals to release them, we give the animals a new home and we try to have them as happier as we can, depending on their physical injuries and our economical situation.

How do we finance the wildlife refugee?

We don’t receive any support from the government for the maintenance of the animals.

Is your support that allow us to take care of the animals that are in need.
