Wild Kritters Snowy Owl from Moog on Niagara Falls has to get vet checked once again on saturday afternoon. after not getting out of the rain and getting absolutely soggy and the freezing temperatures setting in snowy was brought inside for 24 hour to dry the back into the vet. Snowy is doing better in the flight cage at Eric County SPCA Wildlife Department. Wild Kritters is Now fundraising to build a adequate flight cage to rehabilitate these larger birds. we have to invest in a longer cage designed for flight without doing damage and allowing them to get weather without being over whelmed by the elements during their rehabilitation. Many of you may not know that Erie County SPCA is moving and will be farther away making more critical that we at Wild Kritters Build Our own flight cage. If you can help us please send donations to Wild Kritters 3300 Saunders Settlement Sanborn NY 14132 as one of the rehabbers caring for snowy it breaks or heart when all that we have build years ago for caging isn't adequate…but the cost to build such a flight cage is for a volunteer group is massive. our currents fund drives and donations all go for vet care, formula. We have cages adequate for getting the animals healthy, we just have to find room somewhere for flight time for strength training before release can happen. ALL of the rehabilitators work together but these cages are few and sometimes you have to wait until one becomes available.
As a group, I have never met people so dedicated and passionate about their cause. It does not matter the day, the time, or the weather, they repond to aid injured wildlife. Their care of the wildlife is unsurpassed with one goal in mind, a successful release. I am proud to know these defenders of the wildlife.
Wild kritters have always been available for a rescue with knowledgable folks on all kinds of animal needs. They are the best!!

The wife and I found an Great Horned Owl injured in our back yard this past summer. Caller Wild Kritters of Niagara and Peter came to the rescue. Placed the owl in special container and brought him to Kathy B. This all took place with in two hours of the call. Talk about fast response team. This group has many members that cover a large area of Niagara and working with other groups in Erie County. They leave no critters behind. Some times just dropping what they are doing to rescue the injured of lost and forgotten wild life. I am very proud to know some of the members personally.
I took the Wildlife Rehabilitation exam because of Kathleen Britton and this group. They helped us with our wilds many times over. I got my taste this year but due to illness in the family I wasn't able to help as much as I would like to in the future. My husband and I love the selfless rehabbers with this group. Someday I would like to be considered one of them.
