Food And Enrichment

Food And Enrichment

  “We will be known by the tracks that we leave behind.” ~  Dakota proverb

Our biggest hit this year came without any notice: our yearly donated whole prey food supply, totaling $60,000, was being cut off. We depended on this food supply for over 30 years.  It was tempting to think of quitting, but we are made of stronger wills. We are wildlife warriors. Any help counts, be it a general donation or donating food & toys- the animals and staff appreciate it all!

Donating Enrichment

Hawk Creek’s goal is to encourage animals to preform natural behaviors, to increase the animals control over their environment and permit them to be more active. Enrichment should help satisfy both the physical and psychological needs of animals and allows them to make choices.

Help us achieve this by donating some fun enrichment to the animals!!!! Visit our Wish List on Amazon by clicking the icon on the right sidebar!
