Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation

Our rescue teams are on call 24/7, 365 days a year, assisting animals that are orphaned, ill, injured or in need of expert care.

Our goal is to successfully rehabilitate animals for return to the wild. The small percentage of animals whose injuries are too debilitating to release, as deemed by the government, are given lifelong care.
