Shy Wolf Sanctuary Education and Experience Center was founded in 1993. Incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in January 2001, Shy Wolf strives to educate people about captive-bred exotic animal rescue while helping animals in need. Shy Wolf Sanctuary has rescued over 1300 animals and provided valuable educational experiences to tens of thousands of human visitors from around the world.

Shy Wolf Sanctuary’s current facility has reached capacity, so the organization plans to expand in Southwest Florida. Its vision is to revolutionize captive animal care, particularly in disaster planning and education, while providing a place of hope and healing for all that enter the gates. Through animal encounters and immersive educational programs, the organization hopes to inspire visitors to take ongoing action to protect wildlife and the sensitive environment, while spreading kindness and compassion to the greater community.

Proceeds from this event, will directly support three of Shy Wolf Sanctuary’s strategic goals. First, increase access to on-campus and off-campus educational programs with science-based field trips, college internship opportunities, and community outreach. Additionally, funds will support Shy Wolf’s environmental sustainability by providing habitats that exceed government safety guidelines while protecting our environment. And, increase access to the organization’s Healing Hearts program by local non-profit organizations such as Youth Haven, the Shelter for Abused Women & Children, and DLC Centers for Behavioral Health.
