I no longer take on any restoration work. Many people do not want to pay for the hours and hours of work that has to be done to restore a bear.
A few of the bears admitted to the “BEAR HOSPITAL”
Many of these bears have been found tucked away and forgotten. Others have owners who have loved them to “bits” and will not part from them. Then there are those who a dog has found and decided it would make a nice toy. I find that owners of these damaged bears, do not understand the time and work it takes to do these restorations and that the costs are high. For this very reason, I am no longer accepting any more bears to be restored.
