CARING FOR OUR PLANET

Mission Statement

"TreeHouse Wildlife Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1979 dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of native wildlife while promoting environmental awareness through education."



Who We Are 

TreeHouse is situated on 8 1/2 peaceful acres between Alton and Grafton, IL in the quiet town of Dow. We provide a professional community service to people in central and southern Illinois who encounter sick, injured, or orphaned wildlife.

TreeHouse Wildlife Center does not receive government funding. Rather, we operate on the kind donations of visitors and supporters, fundraisers, grants, and education program fees. 

We invite you to tour our center and learn about the work we are committed to and passionate about. See our Visit Us page for visitor hours and browse the rest of our website for information on our organization, public events, and how to get involved. 

Help support TreeHouse Wildlife Center by purchasing items critically needed to provide care and shelter for sick and injured wildlife.  Thank you for choosing to help us in our mission to save wildlife.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. Visitors understand and agree that COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death.  COVID-19 is spread in many different ways and visitors assume responsibility for any injury (including personal injury, disability or death), illness, damage, loss claim, liability, or expense arising out of or related to COVID-19 experienced or contracted in connection with a TreeHouse Wildlife Center visit. Visitors will waive and release all claims against TreeHouse Wildlife Center and its commissioners, officers, employees, volunteers and agents relative to the foregoing matters and agree that TreeHouse Wildlife Center is legally entitled to immunity in regard to any such claims.

 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and visitors with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.
