Rescue is a Year-round Effort

Although “baby season” is mostly done with for the year, the injured and ill animals keep coming in. Every day, some bird or beast needs our help (often more than one), and we are always there for them.

Yesterday, for instance, a crow with a damaged wing, and a young turkey with a broken leg, arrived in need of help. We’ll do our best to get them fixed up and released back into their natural environments.

New animals are coming in every day, and we still have many long-term residents here which cannot be released, and are kept on special educational permits. Their care is never-ending (and often expensive), but we are also grateful that they’re here, because they help us to teach people how important it is to be a friend of wildlife and the environment, and how to live with our wild neighbors safely and respectfully.

If you would like to help cover some of the cost of running the center and caring for these marvelous souls, please feel free to use the PayPal button on the right. You do not need to have a PayPal account to use this method; there is an option to use a credit or debit card without having to create an account.

We are also feeling a huge amount of gratitude to a special human friend of the center, whose recent donation has helped us to pay off the balance of our new Wildlife Wagon. We meet so many wonderful people every year, and the Wildlife Wagon has been a great addition to our team. It allows us to transport our birds of prey in safety and keep them in comfort during our displays and shows. How did we ever get by without it?
