Mission Statement:

Big Run Wolf Ranch ENDANGERED!!!

After just celebrating our 30 year anniversary, Big Run Wolf Ranch was notified by Prologis, a leading global developer of industrial real estate, that they have submitted a proposal for a mutiple-building industrial business park. This development will be built from the southwest corner of 143rd Street & I-355, extending to 151st & Archer. It will be sitting directly on BRWR's property line, adjacent to our animals and in the middle of 5 family neighborhoods! This will severely impact the health of all of our rescued/endangered animals and the future of Big Run Wolf Ranch.
