Review from Guidestar
February 27, 2011

I have been associated with Fellow Mortals for a number of years now and continue to be awed by the level of professional care and dedication by Yvonne and her whole staff. Having worked at a wildlife facility myself, Fellow Mortals continues to impress by its standards of cleanliness, care, expertise, and continuous growth. Their interns take their training and performance standards with them as they carry on in other parts of the country and world. This is such a valuable service and facility with ripple effects that benefit birds and wildlife in places far from the original facility. Many kudos to Fellow Mortals!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have witnessed the dedication and growth of Fellow Mortals and have the highest regard for the entire staff and board.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The changes at Fellow Mortals receive much thoughtful consideration. What is best for the animals themselves is always foremost. The best change would be more money, more staff, more interns, more facilities... because there will always be more animals that need help!

They're amazing. The compassion, devotion and knowledge of the wildlife in their care is like no other. I am grateful that I've been able to volunteer when my schedule allows. Every little creature is treated equally from the tinniest mouse to the grand Bald Eagle. Thanks guys!

Working long days everyday of the year they do not stop until every animal has what it needs and more. They are my inspiration.

A love for all creatures, from the smallest baby mouse to an elderly beaver, is what I witness each day that I volunteer at Fellow Mortals. The compassionate and knowledgeable Wildlife Rehabilitators and interns, work long hours to help insure that each animal that is brought to them has a chance to heal and then be released. The hundreds of animals that are helped each year by this organization are impressive; especially when you consider the time and cost that is required.

Fellow Mortals works hard to educate the public on many wildlife issues. What a person can and should do when they come into contact with an injured wild animal, from the initial phone contact to literature that is given to each person that brings an animal to the shelter, is enlightening. Fellow Mortals is also using Facebook as a tool that is fun and informative.

Fellow Mortals is a wonderful organization doing an amazing job.

I have been friends of Fellow Mortals over the past 15 years or so. I have been blessed with the privilege to watch them continue to serve the birds and animals who have a special place to go to heal. These injured and orphaned wildlife critters receive top notch professional medical attention increasing their chance to return to the wild. Giving the wilds ones admitted for care a second chance at life is the #1 priority of the staff and they do everything they can to give the beings the experience of their freedom once more.
Thank You Fellow Mortals for being there for the wild ones who would otherwise not have a place to go. Thank you also for providing such beautiful stories as your writing brings a voice to those who do not have one. Your gift of speaking for the wild ones is truly a treasure. Anyone who is reading this please look up some of the past newsletters where Yvonne and other staff have shared their hearts and touch ours through their words.

Donate more money so they can continue to expand the facility and build enclosures that are needed to bring even more state of the art care for the wildlife admitted here.

Fellow Mortals is a very special place.. When a wild animal or bird is injured there is a somewhere they can go to receive the care they deserve as beings who do not have a voice for themselves. The staff at Fellow Mortals treat each wild creature admitted with such deep compassion and the deep respect they deserve. I am always moved in my heart to witness their dedication and devotion to the wild life we all share our lives with. There are so many touching stories that can be told about the many, many encounter's with the spirit of the wild animals and bird's who make their way to the facility for care and rehabilitation. Yvonne is a master weaver of words and her writing is truly a gift to the world. Yvonne has been consistently publishing newsletter's to update and inform the public of the accomplishments, and state of Fellow Mortals as well as generously sharing her experiences, feelings and perspective's through her stories. I am always encouraged to look deeper within myself as I read her words of wisdom and how she shares from her heart.

Fellow Mortals was the first wildlife rehabilitation center I ever worked with. Outside of zoos I didn't realize there were professionals who dedicated their lives to keeping wild or exotic animals healthy. Fellow Mortals opened up my eyes to the many ways everyday people can help wildlife to thrive.

I was an intern at Fellow Mortals right out of undergrad. The volunteer intern experience was hands-on, with lots of animal handling and husbandry duties, caring for baby rabbits, birds, geese, ducks and whatever else came through the doors. The other interns were all dedicated and hard-working, and Yvonne, the founder and director of FM, gives clear directions, makes sure you're comfortable with your duties, and puts in just as many (if not more) hours and effort as her team.

Working at FM has cultivated a lifelong interest in wildlife for me.

Make it bigger! Though I believe that is every non-profit's wish - to be able to expand.

Fellow Mortals cares for sick, orphaned, and injured wildlife that is typically in need of care by a human as a result of human actions, and although no one wishes for such instances to happen, when they do, as they inevitably will, there is no place like Fellow Mortals. You can put your utmost trust in that the animal they take in to treat will be given the highest level of care, respect, attention, and dedication to the animal's full recovery. They will give every living creature a chance to make a return to the wild. This is not a day job for the staff, this is their livelihood and passion. I worked for almost a year with the wonderful staff of Fellow Mortals, and not only did I learn how to care for the animals at the facility, the staff were inspiring, they make sure every person that works with them, or drops off an animal, understands the need to care for every living creature that we share our backyards with. Cheers, FM, and keep up the amazing work!

I can't remember the date of the first time I took an animal to Fellow Mortals, but I will never forget being so grateful to find out that such a place existed. It is a place where all life is treated equally important, regardless of species. It truly is a beautiful place in a world where life is so carelessly disregarded and blind eyes are turned to suffering. It is a place full of hope, caring and compassion. I have learned so much from Yvonne, founder and licensed wildife rehablitator, who in a busy day, during a busy season, when injured and orphaned animals don't seem to stop coming all day long, will stop to answer a question I have because she knows I care too and am eager to learn as much as I can from her in what little time I have to give. I have seen Jess, a licensed wildlife rehabilitator, trying to piece back together a broken bunny hit by a car, with so much gentleness that to this day when I think about it, it brings tears to my eyes. And just for perspective,, I had been there 11 hours already that day and Jess had been there hours before me and would be there hours after I left. Yet her kindness and compassion and patience never wavered. I have seen Karen, a licensed wildlife rehablitator, give her very breath to bring warmth to a cold baby bird, literally breathing life into him. I have been privileged to see that same baby bird grow and fly free. I have seen all of them at Fellow Mortals ( interns included ) on their "day off" stop in as they were running errands for Fellow Mortals while out taking care of their own. I have seen animals come in so injured that I thought their lives were surely over. I have seen Yvonne, Jess and Karen give them everything they have; time, knowledge, care and compassion to try to give them a second chance. And I have been blessed to be there to see many of them set free, returned to the wild where they belong, made whole again because of the fact that Fellow Mortals exists and because of these people who dedicate their lives to them. I know that every animal that comes in to Fellow Mortals does not make it. But I also know that those who don't are not suffering long, slow painful deaths. They were brought in by someone who saw their suffering and cared. And they are being gently released from their pain by kind hands with as much dignity and respect as possible. I am so grateful to have found Fellow Mortals. They breath life, love and hope not just into the animals in their care but into the world at large. Please help if you can because everyone at Fellow Mortals donates much of their time and every penny counts and is truly needed and appreciated.

From my first abandoned duckling over 20 years ago to an injured Canadian Goose just last year, I have brought many wild ones to Fellow Mortals skilled care over the years. Every animal receives top rate medical and species specific treatment. We and our wild animal neighbors are so lucky to have them in our community. Yvonne, Steve and their team of interns, volunteers and vets are the best.

I garden and did not like the Rabbits eating the bean tops so out came the bb gun.
However, it just scared them as my shooting ability wasn't very good. Then I did
hit one and did not kill it. When I picked it up and it wiggled in my hands in pain, I then
realized I was supposed to
protect it not shoot it. I still tear up thinking about it. So when
a rabbit got hurt we had to take it somewhere to fix it up. That was Fellow Mortals.
And wow what a job they do protecting the wild animals that not enough of us care about, but more seem to be changing their thinking. Fellow Mortals and what they do to fix and release up to 70 percent of wild animals, with passion for each, should be cloned in every county in the entire US and probably the world. PBECPA SOMEONE MAKE THIS HAPPEN, PLEASE

More devoted to aiding wildlife from injury to release then anyone could imagine. They are constantly trying to improve the animals atmosphere for recovery without worrying about their atmosphere.

I am not acquainted with many non-profits, but am well acquainted with Fellow Mortals. The luck of injured animals and birds changes instantly when the person finding them thinks to take them to Fellow Mortals. Not only is the medical attention the best (by staff or veterinarians when needed) – but attention to their comfort now and to thoughts of their possible future is all part of what happens here. No one animal or bird is more important than any other – and compromise is not an option. Five Stars is a ‘no-brainer’ for Fellow Mortals!

There may be organizations who care as much, who give as much, and who are as competent as Fellow Mortals – but not even one who cares, gives and is more competent than Fellow Mortals! Our wild animals and birds can’t ask for help, but when they do need help they seem to know how lucky they are to be at Fellow Mortals!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My husband and I have taken several birds and small animals here through the years and have served on their advisory board for a time.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to find ways that finding funding would not be so time consuming.....

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how much I've learned about the need for medical help in our wild animal and bird population -- the need being, in almost all cases, the result of carelessness and ignorance on the part of our human population!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Compassionate, intelligent, and so very caring!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand its facility to accommodate more sick and injured animals and birds more ideally -- and have the capability to train many more individuals to do this kind of work in their part of the world!

Ways to make it better...

can't imagine anything.....

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financing

One thing I'd also say is that...

The couple who run this organization, Yvonne and Steve, are the two most dedicated, amazing people I've ever known!
