A big thanks to all our recent donors!
We are working tirelessly to care for our injured and orphaned Connecticut wildlife to allow them to grow and prepare for release back into the wild. We also provide safe placement for unwanted, abandoned and homeless pets from hamsters and ferrets to cats and dogs.
In the spring and summer our team cares for hundreds of orphaned grey squirrels, flying squirrels, opossums, chipmunks, cottontails and more! Through our “off season“ as wildlife needs slow we spend more time focusing on the needs of domestic animals who are abandoned, homeless or neglected.
Through a network of carefully screened foster families we provide necessary safe placement, veterinary care and decompression time to allow them to be placed in the best possible permanent home through an application and interview process of perspective families.
Our goals include promoting education of our native wildlife to children and adults through public speaking engagements. We are not only licensed in wildlife rehabilitation in Connecticut but our founder is also a USDA Class C Exhibitor allowing us to provide invaluable education on living harmoniously with wildlife and sharing the amazing details of the lives of native opossums, chipmunks and squirrels with the assistance of our veterinarian determined non-releasable animal ambassadors!
The effects of rapid land development and shrinking wildlife habitats are apparent to all of us as the frequency of wildlife sightings are increasing in residential communities. By learning how to live alongside our wildlife and respecting each other’s need for survival in the ecosystem we share, we can prevent unnecessary future decline of wildlife populations and decrease the spread of falsehoods and old wives tails which often accompany the reports of interactions with wildlife.
By providing spaying and neutering to domestic animals and decreasing unintended litters we can help decrease the growing shelter populations and amount of homeless pets. By adopting your next furry family member, instead of supporting for profit mass breeder puppy mills, you can help end the suffering of animals utilized for human profit. Together, we can make a difference.
As a pending 501c3 non-profit organization your support and contributions enable us to purchase necessary supplies and formula for orphaned wildlife as well as provide veterinary care for both our wildlife and domestic rescues. Your generous donations help fund our mission.
