We understand that times are hard right now, and a lot of people have nothing to give. However, if you do have the resources, please donate to our cause. The situation we're facing this year is unprecedented and was certainly unpredictable. If you can reach into your heart, and donate, we will be eternally grateful.

The Peregrine is a very common medium sized falcon that is found worldwide on every continent except for Antarctica. [...] Peregrine Falcons have been prized by falconers for over 3,000 years, and Peregrine Falcons also get the honor of being the "fastest animal on earth." Normal flying speed is between 25 to 35 MPH but they have been clocked doing over 220 MPH when they go into a fast dive (or stoop) while hunting.
A generous donor has gifted NYWRC with this beautiful 16-foot 2017 stock trailer. We will be auctioning it to the highest bidder! It’s truly a beautiful trailer, and will be available for viewing at our facility. We will be accepting bids via Facebook Private Message to Wes, and already have one private bid of $1,000. Follow this post, where we will be posting the high bid updates. Do note that due to the great quality of this trailer, there will be a reserve on the item. Our posted comments will let you know when that reserve has been met.
As always, our friends at Green Chimneys in Brewster, New York put on an amazing event. New York Wildlife Rescue Center has been attending for the last several years, and are never disappointed. Big thanks go out to Green Chimneys, their staff, their other exhibitors, and all of the fabulous guests who stopped by to say hello. Oh, and we can't forget to thank the birds!
We at New York Wildlife Rescue have a few special thank-yous to express today, for help received from our volunteers in the past few days! To our newest licensed rehabbers, Tyler Schmidt, Hannah Laraway, and Sarah Moffatt, thank you for all your help with the new babies, and especially that baby fawn!
We had a great day on Saturday at Schodack Island State Park. The Raptor Festival in conjunction with the Capital Region Audubon Society went very well. Our new set-up was a great success.
The Canada Gosling was a great addition, because it's always much better if wild babies are raised with another of their kind. We have also helped many pigeons, which really are lovely birds despite their less than stellar reputation, in the past, so this fellow should do just fine.
How awesome are our Class of 2017 Middleburgh High School Seniors? On May 19th, they held a petting zoo on the front lawn of the school to raise money for New York Wildlife Rescue Center! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
