My sister and I were getting ready for a yard sale when I noticed something on a cut branch on the tree. We walked a little closer and seen it was some sort of bird of prey with a injured wing. We got a box and a towel and as carefully as we could, captured it. Called animal control and they said they don't deal with wildlife and they suggested Fellow Mortals. I called Fellow Mortals and left a message, when they called me back they asked if I could also bring baby ducks that were recovered from a sewer drain. I said yes of course! Boy, was that a fun 45 minute drive! Hit a bump, ducks quack/chirp then the bird would poke its head out of the hole in the box. Arrived at Fellow Mortals and handed over all my new found feathered friends. I received a letter about a month later that the bird, a male American Kestrel Falcon, did not make it. The ducks however, were thriving with a foster mom. Without Fellow Mortals, the Kestrel Falcon didn't even stand a chance and the baby ducks would of been euthanized by animal control. Fellow Mortals is truly a savior to a great many fellow mortals that we share this earth with.

A few years ago I took an injured bird to Fellow Mortals - it was laying in our driveway trying to fly and couldn't. They immediately took the bird in and started treatment. They are truly a blessing; I have referred many friends to them.

I found a Cooper Hawk who was slightly injured. I called Fellow Mortals and they immediately set up a time for me to bring him up. The staff there are wonderfully friendly and compassionate. They evaluated the birds injuries and immediately began taking care of him. When I requested an update on him, I received all of the information. Double A++++. The world should be like Fellow Mortals

Over the last three years, I've been to your place three times. The first time was delivering 3 baby squirrels from my bosses house as mama was killed by a bird. The second was a Canadian Goose that I would see quite often in a pond by a grocery store. When the time came for birds to leave for the winter, this one was left alone. From the help of a large dog kennel and me having a pick-up, we took the trip. This year to my surprise as I opened my front blinds, there was a visitor. This bird had never been here before, so I went through my bird book to find out what was the "norm" and the breed. As I scrambled to find the answer, he/she went next door without me seeing how he/she got there. Turned out it was a Grebe. Upon further and respectful observation, I didn't know if it had a broken wing or something else wrong that I couldn't see. There are predators during the day and night, I didn't want to take a chance that he/she wouldn't be able to defend itself. After putting it in a box, off we went to make the trip to Fellow Mortals once more. Through all three of these instances I had called ahead. All critters were kept warm and protected. I even sang to the squirrels and the Grebe, in order to hopefully keep them calm. Each instance I had no hestitation or long delay from the Angels at Fellow Mortals. This trip is about an hour away from me but each long drive was worth knowing that whatever I brought, would be better off than the circumstances that they came from. Being a huge animal advocate, both wild and domestic, doing these deliveries was just another day of rescue for me. If there's a critter in trouble, they seem to find me. I am truly honored and ready to jump right in to help!! If there were more caring and giving people like myself, a few of my friends and Fellow Mortals, the world would be a much better place for all animals and humans. When my mom or friends find a critter in need, they call me. Keep doing what you're doing and I'll do the same. We are unsung heros but where would nature be without us? Take care.

I have been involved with fellow mortals for over 12 years. There is no other rehab center that does as much for so many injured and orphaned wildlife as they do anywhere in the S.E. wisconsin N.E. Illinois area. I have volunteered, donated and been served many times. The amount of care and the hours required to give it is beyond most peoples comprehension. They are dedicated to the animals 24/7 and put in unbeleivable hours to save as many as possible. I truely beleive they are one of the best wildlife rehab centers in the country.

I've had a couple of interactions with Fellow Mortals and both times I've been so relieved there was someone there to help me (and the animals). One time was when I was out on a run along the highway in the country, I came upon a baby chickadee with head trauma. I carefully carried it home and contacted Fellow Mortals, who eagerly accepted the poor fledgling. Another time was when I found some baby mice in my basement and the mother, for whatever reason, never returned to them. They were kind enough to take them in for me, as I would never have succeeded at caring for them myself. I even took another one in the next day as I missed it the day before. They never demanded specific monetary contributions. They only asked for what I could contribute for the animals' care. I still wish I could have given more.

Fellow Mortals is truly an organization with a heart. It is a collective heart of kind and caring souls who take the time out of this busy world to care about the some of the most defenseless and vulnerable fellow mortals, our injured and orphaned wildlife. Most recently, I've brought a squirrel that had suffered traumatic head injury when hit by a car. I found him writhing on the centerline of the road in the rain near my home. I put him into my car wrapped him in a towel, and put him into a picnic basket I had with me. I heard him crying all the while as I was leaving a message for Fellow Mortals that I had found him and hoped to bring him in before it was too late. They called me back and said it was ok to bring him in right away. He continued to cry softly. When I got him there, they attended to him right away and I left with hope that he'd make it. I found out sometime later that he did make it and was able to be released into the wild. I've got tears in my eyes writing about this and I'm so glad I happened to drive by at that time to help him. I've also attended the Fall Migration fundraiser and met many others who share compassion and love for these our "Fellow Mortals". Several years ago I found a rock dove (homing pigeon) on the road. I called and brought him in because he had also been struck by a car. He was able to be rehabilitated and because he was a domesticated bird, he couldn't be just released into the wild to fend for himself so I was able to adopt him and 2 others and provide a home for them for several years. I've donated to the organization for each animal I've brought in and I can think of no other group for which I have the deepest respect. We are lucky people (and animals) on this earth to have them.

Fellow Mortals has been a real Godsend for our area. They have helped many times when I've found abandoned or injured wildlife. It's distressing to find an animal that needs help and I'm so glad I had them to advise me and accept the birds and squirrels that needed help. With them, it's all about the animals. The center is a quiet area, cars must park a distance away to not disturb the wildlife they are rehabilitating. They work only from donations and they work 24/7, 365 days a year. They have wonderful postings on facebook and their site so we can see who has been admitted and how the healing is going. It is so gratifying to hear of an owl being released back to the wild. They have done so much, not just for the animals but to help educate the public on respect and caring for them in an emergency. I brought them a little thrush that fell from the nest and was not moving. Yvonne held it in her hands, and as it warmed up, it literally came to life before our eyes. I'll never forget that, and will always support this wonderful place so they may continue to educate us and help us help mother nature.

When I lived in town 20 years ago, I brought a paralyzed squirrel in. He was dragging himself across the sidewalk by his front legs. Rather than let his suffering linger, it was such a relief to know that he was taken care of in a kind humane way. On a happier note, I have brought in injured birds, so very young . When Yvonne held one little thrush, it came to life in the warmth of her hands.! Some are just treated for shock and observed, but it's so good to know that animals get the care they need 24/7 with competence and kindness. Many of my friends have had similar experiences.

While walking around the back yard, I came across a very small, injured squirral. His little nose was all bloodied, and he was having great trouble in walking. He apparently had fallen out of a tree. We let him be, hoping mom or someone would come find him. Eventually, we looked in the phone book, googled for help, and finally called our vet. He recommended Fellow Mortals, and are we glad we called. Fellow Mortals gave us some guidelines over the phone, we retrieved the little guy, and took him to the office. The squirral was given immediate attention and care. I cannot say how appreciative my wife and I were for the care, and also the personnal courtesy afforded us. We were so impressed, that we became donors on the spot. Thank you Fellow Mortals!!
