Review from Guidestar

Early one morning our cat (on a leash) was sunning on our patio . He caught a baby sparrow and proudly brought it in the house. I made him drop the bird, the frightened little bird hid behind some furniture and I put it in a shoe box. (punched holes in the top and sides before putting the little bird inside). I searched on-line for advice and found Fellow Mortals. I got instructions to keep the bird quiet & safe. I put her up in a dark, quiet closet, away from the cat. (Do not feed/water injured animals). I left a phone msg.,Fellow Mortals returned the call early am and I took the baby sparrow in to see the Dr. They were so kind and sweet to both of us. She had puncture wounds & I was informed that cat wounds are very serious and it was good that I brought the birdie in ASAP. I even got to "name" the little birdie "Charlotte" when I filled out the short form indicating that I wanted an update on her status. I wrote a check for $25 to help Fellow Mortals..(they deserved every penny and then some). I later mailed a SASE so that they could inform me on Charlotte's progress. I am happy to say that 2-3 weeks later they informed me that she was doing well and would soon be released into the wild. What a fantastic experience. My husband and I were so impressed. PS: Do not hesitate to bring in sick/ injured animals they will not make you feel bad if you can only afford the gas to get there. What a dedicated, caring and generous organization. I wish I had more money to give. So-o-o-o impressed.

I would want to give them "oodles" of free publicity so that the donations would come pouring in. Many so-called charities are so "top" heavy with highly paid executives that very little of the monies received actually go to the care of the "intended receiver". I don't see that here. The love, care and generosity toward the animals is so obvious. It has inspired my husband to have an animal refuge upon his retirement.

A wonderful community asset that helps care for wild animals that are unable to care for themselves due to illness, accident, or other misfortune. Brought an injured squirrel to Fellow Mortals Hospital several years ago and was impressed with the compassionate care the animal received. Staff members are highly knowledgeable and skillful and are truly committed to the welfare of their animal charges. Inured/sick animals are welcome virtually at any time.

I discovered Fellow Mortals Wildlife Hospital when my cat got out of the house one spring day and injured a young bunny. I called the local animal shelter and they directed me Fellow Mortals. I took the bunny as soon as they called me and entrusted it to their loving care.

Fortunately,
the bunny's injuries were not life threatening and it fully recovered.

Fellow Mortals Wildlife Hospital is a guardian angel to the wildlife whose habitat we infringe on with our urban sprawl and dangerous vehicles. It does my heart good to see the work that they do so selflessly on a daily basis.

I've had the privilege of working on the development of Fellow Mortals facilities for the care of orphaned and injured wildlife from time to time over the past twenty years.
I'm most impressed with their dedication to the care of each and every individual creature that is presented to Fellow
Mortals for care, from the tiniest orphaned hatchling to the greviously injured adult, the value and potential of every single life is honored.

One afternoon a couple years ago, my husband ran into the house all
flustered. He told me there was a baby bird on the ground that had
fallen from a nest in the tree. I lifted the bird up and removed it from the
hot sun. I began doing some research to find an organization that
could
help me with the baby bird. I didn't know if the mother bird would refuse to
care for it after I had touched it. I found the name of Fellow Mortals & their number from
a neighborhood store that I buy birdseed from. I called and left them a
message. Someone returned my call in about 10 minutes. She advised
me to place the bird back in the nest and then check on the nest to see
if the mother was going to return to feed the babies. One or the other of us watched the nest with our binoculars. Behold! Within about
30 minutes, the mother bird returned with food and proceeded to feed
ALL the baby birds. My husband & I were so happy & relieved that the
baby was going to recieve sustenance. I went to Fellow Mortals the
following day and thanked them profusely for helping us. When my
husband & I were so baffled as to what to do, the Fellow Mortals
Intern was very calming and helpful. I wrote a donation check. When
I read about the organization and that they work strictly on donations,
I knew that they needed financial help if we were going to keep them
helping injured & orphaned wildlife. Ever since, I have felt blessed to
have such a wonderful, compassionate, hard-working, and educational organization to help our wildlife. I feel honored to have
Fellow Mortals Wildlife Hospital as a part of my life.

Lake Geneva Wisconsin. Fellow Mortals asked if I would like to re-introduce a rehabilitated red-tailed hawk onto my property. I have quite a few acres. We all said our goodbyes to the hawk and watched as his healed wings carried him through the sky. I could not help but cry because the sight was so beautiful. .

like to see them expand to be able to take care of even more animals and be able to have the time to educate even more of the public about our precious wildlife.

I've spent some time working with Fellow Mortals (non-humans and humans alike) and always come away with a feeling of satisfaction that I've helped the universe and made things better for others. The owners do this on a daily basis (24x7x365) and need our help to enable them to provide the best care possible.

I work for CSI Media, LLC - the Shopper Advertiser/Walworth County Sunday and we do 2 Community Awareness pages for Fellow Mortals. These are to inform our readers as to what they are all about and how in general the public can help Fellow Mortals. I truly believe they are of great value to our community and to the helpless animals they serve. Keep up the great work!

I work at a landfill located in Racine WI. We have a large population of Red Tail Hawks. One of our hawks broke his wing and I called Fellow Mortals right away. They asked that I get him there as soon as possible. They took him in right away and the next day did surgery. Unfortunately he had torn ligaments and not broken his wing. They worked with him and it became apparent he was not going to be able to fly again. With much work an education program was located that would take our hawk.

The time and effort put in by these very special people helps take care of those creatures that would not stand a change otherwise. I am so thankful for them and their organization and wish them all the best now and in the future.

I was tremendously impressed with Fello Mortals building and offices. The help was very kind and answered any and all questions. They offer so much information. I drove a friend with 2 birds that had to be rehabbed and I can't say enough nice things about how well we were treated.

Fellow mortals helped me when I thought I had nowhere to turn. I found a bird stuck to a glue trap and they were able to remove him and get him on his way to recovery. Just last week I found a bird with an eye injury. They gave me instructions on how to care for him until I could deliver him there for care. They are wonderful, caring people who quietly work to care for the most helpless among us. Without them I truly would have had no place to take these injured animals and they would have died.
