Food Donations

Feeding the animals is very expensive. Without the food donations we receive from local grocery stores like Walmart and Beartooth Market, we’d be spending close to $100,000 per year just on food. 

If you would like to make a food donation, please read our list of needed items and guidelines below. Then please contact us at info@yellowstonewildlife.org to arrange pickup/delivery.
