The fall migratory bird season is upon us and incoming call volume is picking up for birds arriving in our area tired, undernourished and disoriented, especially at the beaches.
Look at what our team of three has accomplished so far! And still two months to go in the year!

Three women ... help us grow.
Wildlife rehab is an important, expensive, labor-intensive service provided by an unfunded organization. We all have to work together to be good stewards of our native wildlife.
We cannot imagine closing our doors to almost 1500 cries for help. We need to reach our goal. The wildlife need is growing each year. Please help us expand to meet that need.
Thank your for joining us as warriors for wildlife!
