Month of May Baby Shower

We invite you to share and support us in our annual Month of May Baby Shower. On any given day, during our peak seasons of spring and summer, we can have 200-300 animals in care, the majority of them injured and orphaned babies that need to be fed specialized formula and diets from every 15-minutes to every 3-hours.

Ways to Help:


Did you know it costs $100.00 to over $1,000.00 to rehabilitate an individual animal? Every donation made goes towards the care of injured and orphaned wildlife. In 2016, we admitted over 1,000 wildlife babies! We need your help in order to provide rehabilitative care to injured and orphaned wildlife in need.
