American Heritage is a great asset to North Idaho. They provide a valuable service to not only the animals, but to the community. As a fellow rehabber (ungulates), I have had the opportunity to work with A.H. through referrals (both ways). I have found them to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, and caring.

The American Heritage Wildlife Foundation provides a valuable and compassionate service in educating the general public about local wildlife and in rehabilitating injured wild animals. They are very active in reaching out to other organizations, schools and in being available at a moment's notice to take in injured animals. We need more organizations like AHWF.

AHWF has come through for me on many occasions when I have had injured wildlife. What they do is invaluable. There is no other place in this area that we can count on for this kind of animal rehabilitation. This place needs more recognition and more support from the community.

American Heritage Wildlife Foundation started its journey over 10 ago. The volunteers have dedicated well over 1,000 each year. The prompt reply to phone calls, the willingness to give up sleep to feed the orphaned babies, the sacrifices of personal time to attend public events and spread the word about this group that is working to preserve local wildlife and provide information to the community. Studies show the human population in Idaho will increase by half a million every 10 years! Where can the animals go to recover from injuries? Where can the public learn how to cohabitate with their native neighbors? I will continue to volunteer at AHWF because they are the only group with this mission and plan to build a (full service) Nature Center!

The founder works hard to rehabilitate the injured and orphaned wildlife. Every effort is made to be clear about the AHWF vision of building the first nature center of the Inland Pacific Northwest.
