As an animal lover, it has always bothered me that I can't do more to help care for local wildlife. I was lucky to learn about Fellow Mortals when I found an injured bunny in my yard, and I was so impressed with the care taken by the staff at this wonderful facility. Years later I had to bring in a seriously injured baby bird, and although ultimately the bird did not survive, the compassion that was evident in the follow-up note I received detailing the care the bird had received made me so glad that I had a place to take the bird so it did not have to die alone and in fear. We are so lucky to have a resource like this in our community, and I support Fellow Mortals and the organization's mission wholeheartedly.

Yvonne and Steve provide the most capable and compassionate care to orphaned, injured and diseased wildlife. Their dedication, along with their volunteers and interns, has saved the lives of thousands of animals who would have died miserable deaths without Fellow Mortals. They have effectively colloborated with veterinarians, other wildlife rehabilitators, donors and volunteers to provide superior care to the animals entering their facility. I am thankful for their guidance, encouragement and service provided over the past 20 years which we have known them.

If I could change Fellow Mortals, it would be only to help it grow into a sustainable, state-of-the-art medical and rehabilitation center which could serve wildlife in a broader region for many years to come. I would also publicize all of the good things they do for the community and wildlife through their pure hearts, compassion and genuine love of God's creation.

I have taken several injured wild animals to Fellow Mortals so they can be helped back to the wild. The staff are superb. I especially appreciated how they followed up by informing me of the animals' status. For example, late one night I brought in a rabbit that had run under my car while I was driving down a rural highway. I was relieved to learn a few days later that the rabbit had not incurred serious injury and would soon be released. I didn't have to just wonder what happened to her. Also, the staff takes the time to educate people who bring in animals. When I brought in a juvenile squirrel whose mother had apparently been killed, I learned from the staff that this often leads to dehydration as the juveniles miss expected feedings, so I knew what was going on the next time I found another young squirrel in the same condition.
As southeastern Wisconsin becomes more and more "developed" it is inevitable that more wild animals will be injured via encounters with people who live in their homes. Fellow Mortals provides one of very few opportunities we have to try to alleviate that suffering. It also provides an excellent training ground for people who want to become wildlife rehabilitators.

My children were devastated when our black lab discovered a bunny nest and attacked the babies. One didn't survive the attack, but the other did and was still badly injured. The staff at Fellow Mortals walked me through the care of the bunny until I could reach their facility. When my daughters and I arrived, we were greeted very kindly and the bunny was greeted with great concern. It was obvious that the staff member really loved all of these creatures, but also knew it was important for my children to know the truth of the bunny's prognosis. She looked over the bunny and explained that although they would try their best to save it, the bunny had been severely injured and might not make it. She took the time to explain how we could look for other bunny holes and what to do to protect future nest attacks. This special care helped my daughters and I take more responsibility for caring for our environment and thinking more about what we can do to help before we need Fellow Mortals again.

The Great!

Try to offer more educational partnerships with local high schools in the area for mutual benefits for both students and staff.

BIRDHOUSE SHE HAD NESTED IN, THEN WE HEARD LOUD CRYING NOISES ONLY TO REALIZE SHE HAD BABIES IN THE BIRDHOUSE WE IMMMEDIATELY CALLED FELLOWMORTALS AND DROPPED THE BIRDHOUSE TO GET BABIES OUT, FELLOW MORTALS ASKED US TO BRING THEM OVER TO THE CLINIC FROM THERE THGEY NURSED THE NEWBORN BABIES BACK TO HEALTH, THEN A FEW WEEKS LATER ANOTHER ROUND OF BABIE SQUIREELS STARTED SLOWLY CREEPING DOWN FROM A TREE IN OUR BACK YARD, WE CALLED ON FELLOW MORTALS AGAIN AND WE WERE TOLD TO WEAR GLOVES AND TRY PUTTING THEM INTO A BOX AND BRING THEM IN RIGHT AWAY, FELLOWMORTALS IS A GOD BLESSING TO OUR COMMUNITY, DON'T KNOW WHERE WE WOULD BE WITHOUT THEM, THANK-YOU AND GOD BLESS, SINCERELY ,A WISCONSIN RESIDENT.

I have brought in many small animals to Fellow Mortals in the past few years. Baby birds that have fallen out of trees after big storms, a couple chipmunks my naughty dog used as a play toy, and a duck that was hit by a car. Every time I have left a message with Fellow Mortals they always get back to you in a very timely manner and are very professional and kind. It's so nice to be able to have a place like Fellow Mortals who I know will do everything they can to save Gods creatures. Thank you for all you do Fellow Mortals!

When Anyone's GOD looks down on us with a questioning eye and considers "are the earth's inhabitants doing the good that is expected of them?" The FELLOW MORTALS HOSPITAL will stand out. Any GOD will see the 24/7 human being aide to the small less capable wild animals is exactly as all GOD's would desire. All faiths require we act as responsible keepers of the space we inhabit. FELLOW MORTALS fulfills this destinay with unrestricted commitment, tireless response and unconditional love. They always have and surely will continue to do so.

We have taken several animals to their hospital where they spent a great deal of time trying to encourage recovery so they could release them again to their WILD.

We became aware of this organization a number of years ago when we rescued a baby squirrel who had fallen out of it's nest. Since then we have rescued a number of other baby squirrels, a baby robin and most recently an injured mallard duck. Every time we have called and left a message, they have promptly returned out calls and provided excellent advice and recomendations on the capture and care of the rescued animal. Their facility appears neat and well maintained and the personnel are extrordinarily compassionate and focused on their mission to rescue, care for and rehabilitate wild life.

Fellow Mortals is an extremely hard-working, caring organization of consummate professionals. I have taken injured wildlife there on a few occasions, and they always treat them with their utmost attention and care. We have called them in the past for advice and they are always responsive. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful organization in our state. Every experience I have had with them has been positive, even if my reason for going has been negative (injured wildlife). I would highly recommend them to anyone needing their services.

In the role selection bo I have been able to select only one category which doesn't tell the whole story. I have known these wonderful people for 14 years and thank goodness there are folks like these out there because we have rescued five lost souls during this time and would have had little luck in finding "anyone" that would have even taken an interest in rescuing some of what we have taken there. God bless Fellow Mortals.
