Donations are a vital part to sustaining the rehabilitation of our wildlife. We need the funding to purchase special diets for many of our animals as well as to pay for housing and medical care. For example, one Great Horned Owl costs us about $60 a month to feed, but we typically have around ten of these birds in our hospital at one time. That's $600 a month just for food!  Below is an example of a cost break down for food for our owls.

You also help to provide support for animals that can no longer live in the wild due to their injuries and have become ambassadors for our education program to teach the public about their local wildlife.
