Prairie Wind Animal Refuge in Agate Colorado is shutting down.  Michael Jurich (Founder and Executive Director of Prairie Wind) authorized us to place this alert in order to help save the animals in his care.  Michael does not currently have email or access to the internet.  He would prefer that someone take over his entire operation by purchasing the land and equipment at the facility and then becoming the new Executive Director of the nonprofit IRS 501(c)(3).  This would allow the animals to stay where they are and in their current groupings and current licensing could stay in place.  If this is not possible, he needs to get the animals placed at other sanctuaries as quickly as possible.
