In fall 2009 we found a newborn gold finch that had fallen from it's nest to our driveway. It was late in the afternoon on a Sunday. Most of the places we called for help were already closed for the day. The Wis. DNR recommended Fellow Mortals. The staff at Fellow Mortals were willing to have us bring the bird in even at that time of the weekend. The compassion that they show for all animals is heartwarming. They truly go out of their way to help all animals with the hope to be able to release them again into the wild.

When we took in an orphaned yellow finch, the staff didn't just take her away. They did an assessment and found she had been well taken care of for the week that we had her. They then explained how they would care for her and said we could come back if we wished and find out how she was, and if she was able to be set free. This is a first-class operation.

I am a true animal lover - always have been. It is my nature, when finding an animal injured or in distress, to try to help it. When dealing with a cat or dog, there are vet clinics you can consult for help. However, when finding an injured animal that is wild, it is very difficult, if not impossible to find assistance. Some years ago, I had an injured swan take up residence on the pond located on my country home. It was unable to fly, but otherwise seemed fine. After providing food for it daily and becoming quite attached to it, I knew I still had a lot to learn about swans. One day something had startled the swan and it took off running down the long road which ended at a busy intersection of traffic. I didn't know how to catch it properly so as not to get hurt and I had no one to help me. I had heard about Fellow Mortals so I gave them a phone call and explained that I needed help quickly to rescue my swan from certain disaster. Within minutes, Yvonne from Fellow Mortals was on the scene and explained what we needed to do. We followed the swan and she was able to catch it properly and helped me to get it back home once again. She also provided direction to me on how to handle the swan. She did not ask for anything in return. She wanted nothing but to help. In this day and age, I find this to be something very special. Her dedication and compassion to helping with the care and well being of all animals is incredible. This organization is outstanding and the people who lend their help and support make this a better world for us and the animals that share our world. I only wish there were more places like Fellow Mortals. It is a true comfort to me to know they are there should I need help again. God bless all those at Fellow Mortals and may they continue with all their good works!

I appreciate knowing that 'Fellow Mortals' is in our area to help the injured and/or mistreated wildlife in our county. Our wildlife has been losing its habitat as our countryside becomes more developed. Injury to these animals occur with this increase of the population.

'Fellow
Mortals' is always there to help these creatures in need. That is why I donate as I can to this worthwhile organization.

I would require the County to charge developers a certain percentage of their project costs to help fund this organization. People move to our communities in this county because of our country environment- which includes our wildlife. They need to show their support to maintain this lifestyle.

Since moving to Wisconsin in 2002 I and or my family have come upon a number of injured and orphaned wild animals. We do not have the expertise nor would it be to the best advantage of the animal to tend to it and have it bond to humans instead of its own kind. In most every instance, time was of the essence since the bird or mammal we found was severely compromised. You find yourself wanting to help and you don't know where to turn. Fellow Mortals gave us somewhere to turn. Fellow Mortals took the helpless creature from us and did all they could to restore its life to the one it was meant to live. I know what they do requires endless time and devotion because I have done it both with wild and domestic animals. You would think that you would grow so weary of all that dedication and giving - but they keep going and giving. Not only do they give of their time, compassion and energy but they also must devote so much time to trying to create all the funding they need to carry on. They put time into programs to educate the public and on top of all that they continually inspire those that already know of them and those that don't through the beautifully written educational news letters they send out. Fellow Mortals, because they exist and do all that they do, grants testimony to the higher good humans can aspire to when it comes to compassion and stewardship towards those that can too often be viewed as lesser than ourselves.

Knowing that there was someplace with the proper expertise, care and facilities to care for the injured or orphaned animal to give it every possible chance to be restored to health and reintroduced to the wild.

Allow it to treat orphaned raccoons and deer, I do believe there are laws against this and I would give them more funding somehow.

I have been a donor, volunteer, fellow professional and much more.

Steve and Yvonne, the principals in Fellow Mortals, are dedicated beyond the point of belief. They are singular people with an amazing level of dedication.

They have give their lives to wildlife rehabilitation and
I have so much admiration for them.

The world would be poorer without their efforts.

What an amazing place! I didn`t know Fellow Mortals existed until I found a small, starving, freezing opposum, and found them through a local vet`s office. They returned my call almost immediately, told me what to do for my small friend until I could get her to them. I couldn`t help but cry when I arrived and realized how truely wonderful this place is. I will do whatever I can to donate, spread the word of their existance for the rest of my life.

Our community is truly blessed to have Fellow Mortals. I could not even count the number of times I personally was able to fall asleep without worry because I knew the wonderful folks of Fellow Mortals had taken charge of helping in the life or lives of unfortunate wildlife in our county. Fellow Mortals has been there for the concerned citizens in our area for decades now and so desrve our aupport and thaks.

I've been very fortunate to have interned at Fellow Mortals Wildlife Hospital a few years ago. I continue to regard my experiences there to be some of the most important, meaningful ones in my life. There is a true need for a wildlife hospital in so many areas, and Fellow Mortals serves its surrounding community so well. The staff there are so dedicated to the wildlife in their care, and they are extremely knowledgable and attentive to their patients. Every year, I look forward to attending their annual auction, because I know firsthand that every penny goes toward the care of those animals staying in the hospital.

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

advertise it more to the surrounding communities, so they know they have a place to go if they find wildlife in need of care.
