Hope for Rocco

*** UPDATE ***

We managed to rescue Rocco and he is now at his forever home at our BEAR SANCTUARY Müritz. However, after 8 long years in prison, Rocco is heavily traumatized. Being underweight and biting his claws due to his horrific experience, Rocco will need extensive care and on-going treatment at our BEAR SANCTUARY. 

Please donate to his recovery!

He still needs you.


Brown bear Rocco had to spend most of his life on an abandoned former military estate in Albania. He was stolen from the wild as a young cub and had to trade his lush forest for a barren rusty cage. After 8 long years in this prison, there is finally hope for Rocco. His owner can no longer afford him and is looking for a new home for him. We want to rescue him before he is sold to another inappropriate home.

Rocco has suffered immensely during his 8 years in captivity. Unable to live out his natural instincts, he has resorted to gnawing away at his cage bars and chewing on his claws to combat stress. He is also underweight, having been fed nothing but kitchen scraps and bread. Thankfully, we are now allowed to feed Rocco and add nutritious and tasty snacks to his diet. With your support, we could soon be able to fully care for him in our BEAR SANCTUARY Müritz in Germany.  

Please help us get Rocco out of his cage and into our sanctuary as soon as possible.
