Click here for more information about Shadow's BFF

Shadow's BFF
Gregarious, loving, and super sweet are all words that have been used to describe our young wolf, Shadow. His overly friendly disposition took us by surprise when he came to us at just three months old. Normally quite timid, wolves tend to take their time getting used to new surroundings and new people. Not our Shadow! From day one he welcomed everyone he met with a wagging tail and big, sloppy puppy kisses. So what was Shadow's favorite toy as a wee pup: an acacia branch! Shadow would spend his day pouncing on, dragging, and attacking his "best friend." At the end of the day, he always "made up" with his beloved acacia branches, pulling them into his bed and snuggling with them throughout the night. Each gift of $14 will help us provide wonderful enriching items like Shadow's acacia to our Zoo and Park animals.
