I read the book Lucky dog and at the end of the book it told me how I could help. I thought would like to volunteer. So that is my story.
Red Creek Wildlife Center has been doing amazing work for many, many years. They are available at all times to rescue or take in injured animals of all types. Their success stories are many. We are fortunate to have them in Schuylkill County.
I am so happy I was told about Red Creek Wildlife Center! I had no idea something like this was available in this area!! I would find small injured animals and try to help them myself with few successes, but now the animals can get the attention they need... by knowledgeable people.
Each time I've needed help, they have always been there, no matter what time or what day.
So grateful to have them here!
Red Creek Wildlife Center, no matter how busy they are, always give the animal the utmost care and attention. When I have called with questions, or come in with injured creatures, they are always available. Red Creek Wildlife Center is top notch, and the animals best interest, as it should be, is always paramount.
Red Creek is nothing short of amazing and inspiring. The wild animals and the human community are blessed to have them.
We brought a hawk that was injured to the Red Creek Wildlife Center. The poor hawk flew into a window and was stunned. The wonderful people at the Red Creek Wildlife Center helped us to get this bird safely to their center. They even took the time to talk to us about the bird and let us know when he was released into the wild. It's so refreshing to meet people who devote their time to helping the helpless. The volunteers at Red Creek Wildlife Center are heroes and we are blessed to have them in our community.
I was never so happy to find this place after chasing a cat away from a baby bird only to realize it was injured before I got there. They were so kind to me over the phone while trying to help me with that little guy till I could get him up there to them.
They again helped me when I sadly found a tiny baby opossum still trying to nuzzle into its dead mother fur. She had been hit by a car. They told me what to do for this little guy until I would be able to make the long drive to get him to them and keep going back to see if I could find any other babies from the litter. When I got him there they had other baby opossums that he could be placed with so he wouldn't be raised alone.
I am so grateful that these people are so dedicated to helping the sick and injured wildlife recover and be able to live out their intended lives. I am also grateful that they are able to assess the ones that cannot and are able to compassionately and peacefully help them over to the other side to end their suffering if there is nothing left for them but an agonizing and prolonged death.
There was another incident that I had been taking another injured bird to them and on the way I saw a car in front of me maliciously hit a poor groundhog. It broke my heart to see him try to drag himself the rest of the way across the road with his front legs. I took him right along with the bird to these wonderful people who were able to help end this poor animals suffering gently and compassionately. Proving to me that there still are decent, compassionate people left in the world.
Every time I ever needed them to help me with an animal they were right there willing to help. These are truly angels from God put on this earth that work at this facility.
Great wildlife organization in our area. Can't say enough about the great things they do for the injured animals in this area.
I was recently bitten by a young outdoor stray cat I was caring for. She had lost the use of her rear legs. I decided to take her into the vet to get checked out. As I tried to pick her up she bite me. I immediately washed the bite and realized maybe she had rabies and that's why she couldn't walk. I looked up symptoms of rabies and that was one of them. I called my vet and they didn't know what to do, only go to my doctor immediately. I went to my doctor and he had no clue what to do. I was very worried because I might have contracted rabies and no professional could tell me what steps to take or treat me. That's when I called Red Creek Wildlife Center because I knew they would know what to do because they are trained and State certified to handle animals that carry rabies. They told me exactly who to call and I was able to get the information I needed. I am very grateful for their help.
I found out about Red Creek years ago when I found some baby bunnies that were displaced from their nest when my neighbor was mowing. Since then I've taken them baby birds, bunnies, and a pigeon with a broken wing. I don't know what I would have done or where I would have taken these animals without Red Creek. Thank you.
