Wolf Creek Habitat & Rescue, located in Brookville, Indiana, was left devastated after Thursday night's storm on July 28th. Over 8 inches of rain caused flash flooding in the creek behind the Habitat. The flood waters destroyed the retaining wall of the house and left 8 feet of standing water in the basement. Several items, including the chicken coop and the chickens, were swept away. Outbuildings were moved and damaged. The gift shop, meeting room, office, cabins, and picnic/event area all have damage. They just found out that the furnace is unrepairable. The cost of a new furnace is $6,500.00.
Clean-up is going to be extensive and time-consuming. There will be volunteers to help with the clean-up. Even though the waters reached the animal enclosures, all animals are safe and secured. Any help that you might be able to provide to Wolf Creek will be greatly appreciated. We are accepting cash donations or checks, Paypal donations or to avoid fees you may call them at [phone redacted] or [phone redacted] to donate. All monetary donations will be used to repair or replace property damaged in the flood and are 100% tax deductible.
The new picture above shows the height of the water in the area where the foxes and the wolf cubs were. They were all safe and had platforms and areas where they could get up away from the water. The cubs of course played in it like we installed them a pond.
Within a couple of days, the cubs were put out with the adults and we were able to open up the cub's enclosure for additional room for the foxes. Our immediate project will be to do repairs & upgrades to the fox den.
Thank you again for your kind donations.
