Kowalczik and his wife Susan started the center with a mission to "provide safety and nurturing to animals that are truly orphaned and prepare them to be returned to a life in the wild," according to orphanedwildlife.org.

In the YouTube video, Jim is seen playing peekaboo, kicking snow and just having a fun bonding moment with the two magnificent and huge creatures.
