The brand new Arosa Bear Sanctuary
We are proud to announce that in Summer 2018, we were able to add another sanctuary to our bear rescue program! We broke ground in the mountains of Arosa, Switzerland in Summer 2017. In the past years, FOUR PAWS has rescued over 90 bears and our sanctuaries are almost at capacity. The number of bears in need, however, seems to be never-ending.
The Arosa Bear Sanctuary will be able to house 5 bears and will encompass an area of 7.4 acres, the size of about 4 and a half football fields of natural, species-appropriate environment for bears. The fresh mountain air and the lush greenery surrounding the sanctuary will offer them a beautiful home to recover from their hardships.
As in its other bear sanctuaries, FOUR PAWS ensures that several key factors are respected in the Arosa Bear Sanctuary. We focus on rescuing bears in need and never contributing to the problems associated with bears in captivity. Therefore, all the male bears at the sanctuary are castrated. We also never remove bears from the wild. Our goal is to give abused and captive bears a new chance at life and not to breed new ones.
Donate for the Arosa Bear Sanctuary and help offer abused bears a new lease on life.
