Support the Retreat

Non US Donations

The Retreat and its animals need your continued support!
To give you an idea of just the feed expenses of the Retreat, our guinea pigs cost approximately $10/month in feed while our bison “Cheyenne” costs over $500/month. These two are of course the two extremes and you have everything in between! Remember the Retreat relies on donations to provide the best care possible for its animals. What if you become this special person…. Their “Feeding Pal”? No amount is too small, consistency is the key. We feed our animals twice a day, 365 days a year.

To thank you for your selfless generosity, we will gladly offer you a small gift in appreciation of your support at your next visit.
