In 2020, we rescued bears Frol and Frosia from a barren concrete enclosure at a hotel and restaurant in Skole, Ukraine. We brought them to our BEAR SANCTUARY Domazhyr, where they experienced for the first time what a proper bear life can look like.
Back then, we couldn’t rescue their parents Sirko and Ruta. But we never gave up on them either. We worked relentlessly to be able to give them a better life too. And we have amazing news- we now have the unique chance to get them out of there and reunite them with their family!
But Sirko and Ruta weren`t the only bears there anymore. We were surprised to hear that Ruta gave birth to a cub in January. Poor little Andor was taken away from his parents and hand raised.
Finally, on 22nd of June 2021 we managed to rescue them and bring them to our sanctuary.
Cub Andor seems to be healthy, he will be microchipped, vaccinated, and dewormed.

He quickly learned his new environment. Andor likes to play and explore all the enrichments prepared by our caretakers for him.
We can already say that his favourite food so far are apples.
Came to sanctuary from Skole, Lviv region, Ukraine.
Update July 2021
Only about two weeks since his arrival at the sanctuary and Andor has settled in nicely at his new home and loves swimming and climbing the structures.
He is joyful and compensating already the sad days with the happy ones. He has a great appetite and some of his favourite treats so far are peaches, strawberries and cherries.
