Feed the Animals
Each of the animals at Indigo Mountain is fed a diet specifically designed for their nutritional needs. The diet consists of only top quality poultry, beef, deer, elk and fish mixed with all the vitamins and nutrients necessary to ensure a long, healthy life. On average we feed over 900 pounds of raw food to the canines each week. The Bengals receive a mixture of high quality cat food supplemented with a raw diet of chicken, beef and fish. The bears are fed grains, vegetables, fruit, poultry, and fish. The bear's diet is varied throughout the year to mimic the diet patterns of a wild bear. But the Center's four bears eat over 2 tons of food a year.
You can imagine how costly it is to feed our growing population. All totaled our food bill for the sanctuary exceeds $31,000 a year. When you add the cost of running the freezers and refrigerators to keep the meat cold, the transportation to town (60 miles round trip) to collect all the groceries and the trash bill to discard the wrappers and boxes you can see that the cost to feed the animals is a huge portion of our annual budget.
