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! 

All donations made to TreeHouse are tax deductible.
