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.

I LOVE the people at Fellow Mortals in Lake Geneva. I am a backyard bird and mammal feeder and have been for about 9 years. I cannot tell you how many times I have had a sick or injured bird in my yard because I did not keep track-HOWEVER -EVERY time I did have one I was beside myself with worry and sometimes panic. They were thorough, kind, understanding, and competent. I was so very grateful every time I needed to go to them for help. I would have been filled with so much sadness and anger by now because I would have had no where to turn. I would feel so desperatly alone in my battle to help the littlest of Gods creatures. They have been hard working angels for me and the birds. I would love to see them helped in almost any way.

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.

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.

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 can't think of any changes except that they would be able to get more donations to make it easier for them in taking care of our injured animals.

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.

I discovered Fellow Mortals, almost by accident, when I found and injured animal who needed help. I was directed to FM and since then have been a donor and champion of this wonderful organization. Their caring spirit and professionalism as well as their compassion and sensitivity to the patients they serve is humbling and inspiring.
