So far in 2019, we have received and treated over 2,500 injured, orphaned, sick and pollution-damaged birds, land and air mammals & reptiles, over 100 different species, with the goal of releasing healthy back to the wild. We do it without receiving ongoing, governmental funding. Thanks to the caring generosity of supporters like you, our critical, life-saving work can continue.

[Wildlife rehabilitation] "is a process of coming to know something quite unlike you, to understand it well enough not only to keep it alive but also to put it back, like a puzzle piece, into the gap in the world it left behind."
-- Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk
