Welcome to Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary

Located in the mountains outside McCall, Idaho, Snowdon is a sanctuary dedicated to the care and rehabilitation of injured and orphaned wildlife. Snowdon was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1989. Since then it has continuously housed and cared for a wide range of large and small mammals and birds. Animals received by Snowdon are in distress due to injury, loss of parents, or loss of habitat. Snowdon is wholly dependent on donations, small grants and dedicated volunteers - including its board of directors - to keep the sanctuary operational.



Fall/Winter Grants!

Snowdon is honored to be the recipient of a number of fall and winter grant awards. Two grants will help fund next year’s intern program: $2,000 from the Whittenberger Foundation and $2,000 from the Idaho Community Foundation provided through the Perc H. Shelton and Gladys A. Pospisil Shelton Foundation Advised Fund. A photo of our summer intern, Megan Heller (with Ollie) was featured on the cover of the Idaho Community Foundation newsletter magazine!

Two grants give us a start on our goal to fund replacement of the large raptor flight cage: $1,000 from The Bernice Barbour Foundation and $5,000 from the Wildlife Support Charitable Trust.

And one for education! The J.A. Wedum Foundation awarded our education program with $1800 to expand the Wild About Wildlife! Traveling Trunk program.
