Big Run Wolf Ranch is a federally licensed non-profit educational facility specializing in North
American wildlife. We have been licensed for approximately 30 years and doing educational lectures for
approximately 26 years.
Many of the animals here at Big Run have been rescued wherein the only other alternative was euthanasia.
Although we have rescued many animals, Big Run's primary objective is education. Currently, we are unable to
comfortably house any additional wildlife. We are in the preliminary stages of planning out our larger facility,
where we will be able to provide homes for orphaned wildlife. Our plans include an on-site rehab medical facility
as well as an 1800 sq. ft. on-site education center. With the continued generous support of the public, our facility
will expand as funds allow.
