Welcome to Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary in McCall, Idaho

black bear cubsWe specialize in the rehabilitation of local wildlife inclusive of orphaned baby birds and mammals; and injured small mammals, songbirds, waterfowl, and raptors. Because of its large forested enclosures and secluded setting, Snowdon is designated by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game as the only facility in the state permitted to rehabilitate weaned black bear cubs.

If you need assistance with an orphaned or injured bird or small mammal, CALL (208) 634-8050. Cell service is not always consistent - Please leave a message if your call is not immediately answered. Someone will contact you as soon as possible. For assistance with injured adult deer or elk, please call your local Idaho Fish and Game office.

Snowdon was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1989 and is wholly dependent on donations, small grants and dedicated volunteers - including its board of directors - to keep the sanctuary operational.


It's Bear Cub Time at Snowdon!

At this time each year we receive numerous calls about black bear cubs in need. These are cubs that have been orphaned and without their mothers' guidance to find food are usually too undernourished to have a chance at surviving the cold winter. As of September 27, 2015 we have rescued 5 orphaned cubs. There are several more that have been identified to trap and come to our facility. Watch our facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SnowdonWildlife for updates and photos.

If you see an orphaned cub that needs assistance, please call us at 208-634-8050 or email info@snowdonwildlife.org. In addition to serving all of Idaho, we also take in orphaned black bear cubs from other nearby states.
