Noah's Ark for the Animals

Hello fellow wolf pack members!!

Due to past and more frequent wildfires, the need for an onsite evacuation building idea has been planted, and now we are going to make it bloom. We are building a fireproof/smoke proof building for our animals. This building will be constructed of fire grade concrete block and be able to contain all of our exhibit animals, (wolves, coyote, fox and our small animals that we rehabilitate).   Our domestics such as our dogs, cat, chickens, ferrets and love birds will also be included.

The building will be 70’x 33’ and have 10x10 pens, a freezer for animal food operated by a generator. It will also be equipped with a medical/staff room and a section for storage. The design has been coordinated with the Teller county fire chief and our construction contractor. “The Ark” is designed with fresh oxygen and compressed air that will exit the interior building. The building will be able to sustain not only our animals from fire and smoke, but some of our key staff who will stay with the animals until the danger has passed.

The purpose of this building is to save all of our animals in the event of a fire and by having it on site, it will help to eliminate the stress of moving them to another facility or our current evacuation location where the road could be closed if the fire is in the west.

This project will be close to $300,000, so we need your help. Your donation of $25.00 or more will be recognized by adding your name to “The Ark for Animals” on a name plaque.

Construction will begin this fall.

Thank you,

Darlene Kobobel
