About me

Molly, believed to be around 25 years old, came to us after her owner sadly died. Although The Owl Sanctuary does not recommend owls as pets, Molly had clearly been well looked after and was loved very much. Molly has not been at the Sanctuary long but has settled in well, she is the biggest owl we have and although shy, she is friendly and loves giving hugs!.
