Wizard of Paws Wildlife Education Inc.

A veteran owned, State and federal USDA licensed, 501(c)3 non-profit wildlife sanctuary in the Indianapolis area, we attribute our reputation to the lasting relationships we create with animals. We believe that all of our animals deserve the highest level of care, and we are committed to providing just that. All of the money we receive from sales at Teespring, and donations all goes into maintaining our animal sanctuary and caring for the animals.

Within the next year we are hoping to purchase a farm property with acreage so that we may expand and rescue more species of animals. When this happens we will need donors to help purchase supplies for perimeter fencing and enclosures with enrichment to be built and will need volunteers to help build them so that our future resident animals can have a safe space to live while in our care.

Our entire Board of Directors are all volunteers; that means NONE of the people working for us get paid; they all have regular jobs just like you. This way all of the money goes to the animals just as it should. All donations made to Wizard of Paws Wildlife Education are 100% tax deductible.

We currently house captive bred animals that CANNOT be released into the wild. Our residents include Red Foxes (Vulpes vulpes), New Guinea Singing Dogs (Canis lupus dingo), Ferrets (Mustela putorius furo), Rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus), and while we don’t normally take in domestic animals; we do have permanent resident cats and dogs.

**If you have found an injured wild animal you should contact your local Department of Natural Resources for a list of licensed rehabilitation experts. We don’t take in animals that were born in the wild as we aren’t licensed to do so.
