Have Your Class Win One of Four Giant Plush Bears!


Meet "Truffles" one of the famous Chocolate Factory Bears.

Truffles came to the Sanctuary after being donated by a couple who had won him in a contest.

The couple had researched this bear's long history as a Chocolate Factory Bear - whose job it was to sit outside one of the Chocolate factory stores to greet patrons as they entered.

Truffles is very large and quite unique, as there are no other plush bears exactly like him.

Truffles now wears one of the Sanctuary staff shirts, as he is excited to represent the Sanctuary in your classroom for years to come!

Meet "Big Bear" one of three gigantic plush bears that we have at the Sanctuary!

Big Bear and his identical brother and sister came to the Sanctuary as fundraising partners.  

They were given to us to help raise funds for the other bears that live at the Sanctuary, but decided they could be of more help representing the Sanctuary in your classroom!

All three of these Big Bears now wear Sanctuary staff shirts, and are ready to come hang out with you!
