Snowdon is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We specialize in the rehabilitation of local wildlife inclusive of orphaned baby birds and mammals; and injured small mammals, songbirds, waterfowl, and raptors. Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary is the only facility in Idaho that fully exceeds the minimum international and national standards for housing (floor area and height) for rehabilitating orphaned bear cubs. Our facility also provides native wildlife habitat and natural conditions that help orphaned bears assimilate back into the wild.

We would not be able to accomplish our work without grants from supporting organizations.
Grants from The Idaho Community Foundation provided through the Perc H. Shelton and Gladys A. Pospisil Shelton Foundation Advised Fund and The Whittenberger Foundation have provided grants to support our Intern Program.
Two grants gave us a start on our goal to fund replacement of the large raptor flight cage: $1,000 from The Bernice Barbour Foundation and $5,000 from The Wildlife Support Charitable Trust. Construction on the flight cage will begin in 2016. The Wildlife Support Charitable Trust has followed up with an additional $5,000 to help with our projects.
The McCall-Donnelly Education Foundation and the J.A Wedum Foundation have funded the development of six unique trunks to help youth learn about area wildlife and birds and to prepare projects that demonstrate wildlife stewardship.
