What is a Sanctuary?
A sanctuary is a safe refuge where animals live out their lives in quality habitats designed to provide for their individual behavioral and physical needs. They are treated in a humane and compassionate manner free from exploitation.
Where do the animals come from?
Indigo Mountain Nature Center provides a permanent home for captive-born animals who have been abandoned, abused or displaced from diverse backgrounds. Others are “surplus” animals from roadside zoos or backyard breeders. Still others were rescued from “Canned Hunts” and a few have been saved from going to Exotic Animal Auctions. Some were found roaming the streets while others were relinguished to authorities. Click on the thumbnails below to view their photos.

Indigo Mountain is home to a variety of contents of wolfdogs and coydogs. Throughout this site you will see that we refer to them as low, mid or high content animals. This indicates the estimated content for most of the animals as we have very little detail about their background or pedigrees in most cases. Historically, percentages have been used to determine the wolf content in wolfdogs. However, this is not an accurate method of determining the content of the animal. Therefore, we cannot with any certainty label these animals as a specific percentage or filial generation. Click on the thumbnails below to view their photos.
