We were fortunate enough to meet the staff at Fellow Mortals when we brought in an injured opossum we found in our yard. At that time we were welcomed by Karen, a most helpful young woman, who handled our frightened rescue with immediate concern and compassion. She was our first encounter with this wonderful organization, and when we read more about their operation and facility, started by Steven and Yvonne Blane, we decided to do what we could to help. I volunteered to sew cage pads for the animals, and my husband got involved in some carpentry and outdoor work projects around the place. We also participated in their annual fundraiser, an outstanding event. Our love of animals led us to support Fellow Mortals, because we saw their genuine dedication to helping injured, abandoned and frightened creatures. When you picture the hours and hours of all-day feeding schedules for baby birds and animals, you can only imagine the patience, love, and devotion this staff has for their “fellow mortals.” My husband felt fortunate to participate in squirrel releases and also some raptor releases, experiences that he said touch the heart deeply. We will continue to support this wonderful organization. They are committed to ongoing superior care, they give their time, (and yes, talents—Yvonne writes the most beautiful articles about the animals, as do many of her highly skilled staff,)keeping folks informed about the view of life from the animals’ world. What amazing and gracious people these are, helping those without a “voice.”

The Great!

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

the care given when we brought an injured animal, and their complete dedication to each animal's welfare.

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

seeing the dedication and compassion displayed by the staff, and the feeling that through volunteering for this group, we were able to help, even in small ways, to make life better for the animals.

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

outstanding!

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

continue on as professionally as before, but with the ability to hire even more staff, and help out even more needy wild creatures.

Through a rare newspaper article featuring them I recalled their name when I found an injured animal. Because of their quiet insistence that this is a hospital they have no visitors and publicity except word-of-mouth. Care and rehabilitation of the animals is their first and only priority. So my first experience with Fellow Mortals goes back far more than 10 years. Since then I have brought many injured animals and have witnessed that every effort is made to help the animals. Their days are long, their own comforts are ignored and sleep is frequently sacrificed. The interns feel fortunate to be part of the organization and are reluctant to leave when their time is up. When an animal is brought in it receives immediate attention. Love, care and gentleness prevails. Their source of happiness and satisfaction is the eventual rehabilitation and release of the animal - whether eagle or white-footed mouse, bunny or hawk. But if release is not possible, then the animal has a permanent retirement in their care. Without a dime of government funding, their only funding comes from the generosity of local donors. Fellow Mortals and all who live there deserve all the help and support that can be mustered.

The Great!

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

the good fortune to be one of their release sites for recovered animals and sharing their joy in seeing the animal hop, run or fly back into its natural habitat.

Ways to make it better...

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

give them a sack of money, so they could build their "dream facility".

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

Their indomitable spirit to give the very best care possible

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

awesome, caring and very, very competant

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

10 million? Fellow Mortals would share that with other struggling wildlife hospitals.

Ways to make it better...

You can't improve love and devotion

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

money money money

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

once you find Fellow Mortals Wildlife Hospital in person or on the web and read about or experience their devotion to injured wildlife your conscience does not permit you to ignore and forget them.

My wife and have been federally licensed bird rehabilitators for 30 years. I have never seen a more caring and competent environment where the use of funds is frugal and used is the best interest of the creatures.

Fellow Mortals is a truly unique and amazing wildlife hospital. They provide high quality care to injured and orphaned wildlife while rehabilitating them to be released back to the wild. They are compassionate, ethical, knowledgeable, and extremely committed. I have had the honor of working with them in the past in various capacities and can not recommend them more highly.

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

They are there 7 days a week to help whenever I need them, whenever the wildlife needs them!

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

They are truly caring individuals who work hard to care for all the wild ones, big and small, who come through their hospital. They value every life equally and treat all life with compassion and respect.

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

Continue to provide quality professional care to all wild animals brought to them. They could afford much needed staff additions. They could upgrade their outdoor caging. They could continue to train interns and expand their hospital.

Ways to make it better...

It could not have been better.

It has been a change of life and thought for me.I see a higher life has given me an opportunity to help than be a burden on wildlife, and to see the light in their eyes of those who give up vacations, fancy stuff and devote their lives to taking care of our fellow mortals. God Bless Them. Nick

my life. If I was an animal and got hurt, I would hope somebody would bring me to fellow mortals and have them take care of me.
