Progress, growth, and development are wonderful things, but man is destroying nature at an alarming rate. Many times the natural inhabitants, the wildlife, are left homeless, orphaned, injured or ill. They come to us terrified and in need of human intervention and assistance.
Many are suffering from shock, dehydration, malnutrition, broken bones and exposure-related illness to list just a few.
Most well-meaning people are unaware of the fact that it is against state and federal law to have a wild animal in their possession. More importantly, they do not have the facilities or training to provide the proper care and treatment the animal may need. They often do more harm than good to the animal they are trying to help.
We want our children and grandchildren to be able to watch the squirrels play chase around the trees, to see silly raccoons with their bandit faces, to marvel at the perfect stripe down the back of a skunk in the wild, and to watch the native birds soar through the heavens. If we choose not to be careful with this great natural resource we have been given, it may not be here for future generations to enjoy.
We are volunteers who hold the appropriate state permits, and have proper training and instruction to care for orphaned, injured, and sick wildlife.
Our goal is to provide temporary care, treatment, medicine, nutrition, nurturing and when needed, veterinary attention, returning the animal to the wild as soon as possible.
We receive no State or Federal funding, so your donations are greatly appreciated.
