Adopt a Resident
Support your favorite Sanctuary resident! The Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary is dedicated to providing consistent, quality care for our amazing animals for the rest of their lives. In keeping with our mission, all of our animal residents are native to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, so they don’t have to adapt to an unfamiliar climate. Whether they’re here because they were orphaned, injured, or habituated, they help us with our conservation education work and bring joy into the lives of thousands that come to visit them every year. Proceeds from adoptions help us provide the best possible care for non-releasable wildlife.
Rouge was admitted to Ironside Bird Rescue, Cody WY, with a damaged wing and brought to YWS when it was found he couldn’t fly.
