BEAR SANCTUARY Domazhyr

BEAR SANCTUARY Domazhyr is a sanctuary in Ukraine that provides a species-appropriated forever home for bears rescued from poor captivity. BEAR SANCTUARY Domazhyr is a project by FOUR PAWS International, the global animal welfare organization for animals under direct human influence, which reveals suffering, rescues animals in need and protects them. Our vision is a world where humans treat animals with respect, empathy and understanding.

Dear friends of the BEAR SANCTUARY Domazhyr

We are deeply concerned about the current war in Ukraine. We empathise with everyone in Ukraine, humans and animals alike, our colleagues, and their families. The health and safety of our colleagues and bears is of the utmost importance to us and we continue to take care of the bears in our sanctuary. 
 
 
Please stay safe and take care of yourselves and your families.

OPENING hours 

Due to the situation in the country, for the safety of our visitors and our staff, we will work only with appointments, and with a limited number of visitors on-site. Pre-registration  is required, therefore please contact us via this phone number +38 067 509 3058.
