Animal Welfare Appreciation Day is Wolf Park’s way of rewarding all those people who help make the world a better place for animals of all kinds. For over 35 years, Wolf Park has been educating and researching animal behavior (Ethology). This day is an excellent opportunity for the animal welfare community to come to the park and gain valuable knowledge that will benefit the animals in their care, or just take a break from the pressures of their work. This event is a great chance also to meet others who are trying to make the world a better place for animals!
Shelter workers, people working in animal rescue, behaviorists, trainers and veterinary care folks are all invited. If you spend your time caring about animals, you will be eligible for reduced admission (adults $5.50) and to participate in drawings for fun goodies! (The drawing will include Wolf Park memberships and other fun gifts.) The first drawing will be for an up-close-and-personal look at that day’s wolf-bison demonstration from the Wolf Park truck, so arrive early to participate. That drawing will happen at 1:30 pm.
Special Guest: Wildcat Creek Wildlife Center will be here with some of their animals on hand to share with our visitors. As a state and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation center, they have helped over 20,000 native and migratory wildlife since 1995!
Also, don’t forget Wolf Park After Hours: Saturday, November 13, 7:30 – 11:00 p.m.
Join us for Wolf Park’s last After Hours program for the season! Howl Night begins at 7:30 p.m. Come on out for an educational lecture and chorus of howls before venturing on a late night tour of the park for our Wolf Park After Hours Program. The Park stays open until 11:00 p.m. Visitors can take a walk around the loop trail and see more of the wolves, listen to other sounds of the night, and enjoy roasting marshmallows on an open campfire. No reservations are necessary.
