New felid enclosures
Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary
Situated in Muskoka, Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary is a 460 acre sanctuary of natural habitat. Their primary mandate is to rehabilitate animals who find their way there so that they can eventually be returned to their natural habitat. They have the space to care for large animals such as moose, deer, bear and wolves, as well as aquatic animals such as beavers and otters. Aspen Valley also takes in a countless number of raccoons, squirrels and other small mammals and birds.
The new felid enclosures funded by the Gordon and Patricia Gray Animal Welfare Foundation greatly improved the quality of life for two existing lynx and a bobcat.
