Forest Animal Rescue will start immediate construction of our Bob Barker Animal Care Building, thanks to a generous $100,000 grant from the former game show host himself!
The building is a $250,000 project and this gift will start the ball rolling to construct a building that will ensure continuing high standards of veterinary and nutritional care for the animals at the sanctuary.
We are making substantial progress toward completion of a state-of-the-art animal sanctuary in the Ocala National Forest and this building is an integral part of that accomplishment
Now, in addition to providing lifetime care to over 100 nonreleasable wild animals that would have otherwise been destroyed, Forest Animal Rescue is rehabilitating orphaned black bear cubs for release back into the wild. Working with wildlife officials in Louisiana and Florida, we started the program to assist with orphaned black bear cubs to nurture them until they are ready to be released back into their native habitat.
Bob Barker is helping to take our newest program to the next level. Not only will this building expand our ability to provide the best veterinary care for all of the animals at the sanctuary, it will increase our capacity to rescue more animals, it will provide more working space for our interns and local and international volunteers.
