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. 

TreeHouse Wildlife Center will be closed until further notice to comply with the government guidelines to limit social interactions. Our animal care staff will still be in to care for our residents and patients. If you have an injured or orphaned animal please call the center and we will assist you.

Please Help During the COVID-19 Crisis


Please help TreeHouse during this national crisis.  Our dedicated rehab staff are working hard every day to rescue wildlife and care for the wildlife entrusted to us.  Please share our fundraiser and consider a donation.  Every donation will go directly to the care of our wildlife.
