The greatest challenge for displaced wildlife no longer able to survive on their own is finding a home after rehabilitation. Thanks to YOU, our generous donors, Wild Paws is able to address this challenge and provide a safe and natural environment for these animals. 

Earlier this spring, our volunteers began construction at Wild Paws on Finneas and Alfalfa’s permanent habitat and we are excited that it is almost complete! The new habitat was intentionally designed for red foxes, with unique features like live-standing trees, boulders, and safe underground digging opportunities. Once Finneas and Alfalfa are moved into their new habitat, we can prepare to welcome the next residents at Wild Paws. 

Your donation truly makes a difference for Wild Paws, from building habitats to helping us with all the behind-the-scene essentials that go into running a wildlife sanctuary. During the Give to the Max event, your donation can go further! Due to generous donors, we have a $3000 Match and each donation through GiveMN.org qualifies Wild Paws for additional grants from the Give to the Max Day prize pool, thanks to the continued generosity of the Bush Foundation. 

On Nov. 18, Give to the Max Day, GiveMN will award:

  • $500 Early Giving Golden Tickets daily on Nov. 1-16

  • $500 Golden Ticket prizes every 15 minutes on Nov. 17

  • $1,000 Hourly Golden Ticket prizes hourly on Nov. 17

  • $6,000 Power Hour Prizes, shared among the top three organizations based on the amount raised between 10:00–10:59 a.m. and 10:00–10:59 p.m.

  • The grand prize of Give to the Max Day is a $10,000 Super-Sized Golden Ticket

Early gifting begins November 1st through November 17th on GiveMN.org!

We are working to complete the 8500 sq ft permanent habitat. We would love to see them in their forever space as soon as possible. Please consider making a donation today to make that happen.

You can also set up a monthly recurring donation to ensure we continue to have the resources for the animals in our care and allow us to rescue more wildlife in need. Make your gift and make our future residents’ dreams to call Wild Paws home come true! Thank you! 

You can help rescue our next residents and make their wildest dreams come true by donating today!

When you make a donation using GiveMN.org, you may cover the 6.9% fee on behalf of Wild Paws, ensuring that 100% of your donation goes directly to wildlife in need!

During the donation process, you will be asked if you would like to cover this fee. If you select yes, 6.9% will be added to your total. Your entire contribution amount is tax deductible, including the processing fee!

If you do not choose to cover the fee, the 6.9% processing fee will be deducted from your donation before it is disbursed.

The greatest challenge for displaced wildlife no longer able to survive on their own is finding a home after rehabilitation. Wild Paws will meet this challenge by providing a safe and natural environment for these animals.
