I have been friends of Fellow Mortals over the past 15 years or so. I have been blessed with the privilege to watch them continue to serve the birds and animals who have a special place to go to heal. These injured and orphaned wildlife critters receive top notch professional medical attention increasing their chance to return to the wild. Giving the wilds ones admitted for care a second chance at life is the #1 priority of the staff and they do everything they can to give the beings the experience of their freedom once more.
Thank You Fellow Mortals for being there for the wild ones who would otherwise not have a place to go. Thank you also for providing such beautiful stories as your writing brings a voice to those who do not have one. Your gift of speaking for the wild ones is truly a treasure. Anyone who is reading this please look up some of the past newsletters where Yvonne and other staff have shared their hearts and touch ours through their words.

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

Donate more money so they can continue to expand the facility and build enclosures that are needed to bring even more state of the art care for the wildlife admitted here.

Fellow Mortals is a very special place.. When a wild animal or bird is injured there is a somewhere they can go to receive the care they deserve as beings who do not have a voice for themselves. The staff at Fellow Mortals treat each wild creature admitted with such deep compassion and the deep respect they deserve. I am always moved in my heart to witness their dedication and devotion to the wild life we all share our lives with. There are so many touching stories that can be told about the many, many encounter's with the spirit of the wild animals and bird's who make their way to the facility for care and rehabilitation. Yvonne is a master weaver of words and her writing is truly a gift to the world. Yvonne has been consistently publishing newsletter's to update and inform the public of the accomplishments, and state of Fellow Mortals as well as generously sharing her experiences, feelings and perspective's through her stories. I am always encouraged to look deeper within myself as I read her words of wisdom and how she shares from her heart.

I garden and did not like the Rabbits eating the bean tops so out came the bb gun.
However, it just scared them as my shooting ability wasn't very good. Then I did
hit one and did not kill it. When I picked it up and it wiggled in my hands in pain, I then
realized I was supposed to
protect it not shoot it. I still tear up thinking about it. So when
a rabbit got hurt we had to take it somewhere to fix it up. That was Fellow Mortals.
And wow what a job they do protecting the wild animals that not enough of us care about, but more seem to be changing their thinking. Fellow Mortals and what they do to fix and release up to 70 percent of wild animals, with passion for each, should be cloned in every county in the entire US and probably the world. PBECPA SOMEONE MAKE THIS HAPPEN, PLEASE

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

More devoted to aiding wildlife from injury to release then anyone could imagine. They are constantly trying to improve the animals atmosphere for recovery without worrying about their atmosphere.

I am not acquainted with many non-profits, but am well acquainted with Fellow Mortals. The luck of injured animals and birds changes instantly when the person finding them thinks to take them to Fellow Mortals. Not only is the medical attention the best (by staff or veterinarians when needed) – but attention to their comfort now and to thoughts of their possible future is all part of what happens here. No one animal or bird is more important than any other – and compromise is not an option. Five Stars is a ‘no-brainer’ for Fellow Mortals!

There may be organizations who care as much, who give as much, and who are as competent as Fellow Mortals – but not even one who cares, gives and is more competent than Fellow Mortals! Our wild animals and birds can’t ask for help, but when they do need help they seem to know how lucky they are to be at Fellow Mortals!

The Great!

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

My husband and I have taken several birds and small animals here through the years and have served on their advisory board for a time.

Ways to make it better...

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

try to find ways that finding funding would not be so time consuming.....

More feedback...

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

how much I've learned about the need for medical help in our wild animal and bird population -- the need being, in almost all cases, the result of carelessness and ignorance on the part of our human population!

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

Compassionate, intelligent, and so very caring!

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

expand its facility to accommodate more sick and injured animals and birds more ideally -- and have the capability to train many more individuals to do this kind of work in their part of the world!

Ways to make it better...

can't imagine anything.....

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

financing

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

The couple who run this organization, Yvonne and Steve, are the two most dedicated, amazing people I've ever known!

Fellow Mortals is a source of hope. Finding an injured animal is a heartbreaking experience, especially when you don't have the knowledge to aid in the animal's recovery. Fortunately, Fellow Mortals is close at hand to provide care and comfort. I greatly appreciate the work they do.

Fellow Mortals is a wildlife rehabilitation hospital and sanctuary up in Lake Geneva, WI. They do wonderful work. They have save thousands of lives over the past 20 or so years. The people who work there (mostly volunteers) are wonderful. They do it because they love the animals and want to make them whole again.

My wife and I became aware of Fellow Mortals one winter day back in the 90's when we were in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. We picked up one of their brochures and thought, "what a wonderful place showing compassion through helping animals". We checked into Fellow Mortals and found that they were everything they said and more helping injured and displaced animals survive, releasing them when they could, providing a permanent home when they couldn't. Since then we have contributed financially in a modest way to the on-going support and upkeep of this wonderful organization.

The Great!

Their efforts to help rehabilitate injured and displaced animals. This to me is the highest calling a human being can aspire to.

Fellow Mortals is excellent! At my work a few years ago a goose was found in a water runoff. We could see it in the manhole. Public works came out and removed it but that was it, it needed help. So I called fellow mortals and I was able to bring it out. The goose was ok and released. When I brought it there I was told they take in 3000 animals a year with an 80% release rate. This was several years ago so it could have changed. Today I had to bring 2 baby squirrels in who the mother had abandoned. It sure is nice having somewhere to bring wild animals who are hurt or abandoned and hopefully released when they are ok. Thank you Fellow Mortals!!

I lie in a suburb north of Chicago not far from Wisconsin. I am a block away from Lake Michigan in an area that has a lot of ravines. I see many deer, foxes , birds and coyotes.. My nose tells me there is an occasional skunk around.Development of land occupied my the animals have forced many of the wildlfe into dangerous situations Fellow MOrtals is the answer to the unfortunate injures many of animals have had.. My son's Animal Rights group in HIgh School volunteered there. Many in his class went back to volunteer individually. Fellow MOrtals existed. FEllow Mortals makes a signifcant contribution It has grown, and has been able to target certain populations that have been very vulnerable.

Fellow Mortals helped us late at night with short notice for a nest of starlings that had fallen down our chimney. They took the poor birds and delivered them the care we could not. We personally support them with our hard earned money because we believe they put it to good use!

Review from Guidestar
February 27, 2011

I have been associated with Fellow Mortals for a number of years now and continue to be awed by the level of professional care and dedication by Yvonne and her whole staff. Having worked at a wildlife facility myself, Fellow Mortals continues to impress by its standards of cleanliness, care, expertise, and continuous growth. Their interns take their training and performance standards with them as they carry on in other parts of the country and world. This is such a valuable service and facility with ripple effects that benefit birds and wildlife in places far from the original facility. Many kudos to Fellow Mortals!!

The changes at Fellow Mortals receive much thoughtful consideration. What is best for the animals themselves is always foremost. The best change would be more money, more staff, more interns, more facilities... because there will always be more animals that need help!
