Welcome to Little Bear Sanctuary
We are a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Animal Sanctuary Located in Punta Gorda, FL

Our Mission: To provide a permanent home for local farm animals that have been abandoned or can no longer be cared for by the owner in order to allow them to live out the remainder of their lives in a cruelty free environment.

Our sanctuary is named in memory of our mom Ursula     (Little Bear in Latin) who passed away in November of 2016. Her dream was to have a barn where she would take care of all animals in need. We love you Ursula, you will always live on in our hearts.
