This organization has been life changing for me, I have been a regular volunteer for going on 4 years now, I volunteer 2-3 days a week currently. I started out cleaning cages and learning the specific diets of local wildlife, I am now involved in medical work including physical exams, fluid injections, performing and observing surgeries, performing necropsies on various species, doing x-rays at a veterinary clinic, bandaging wounds, etc etc...The one on one hands on experience is really invaluable. I've gained experience with lots of wild animals that people rarely even see up close, including different species of owls, hawks, songbirds, mammals and reptiles! The volunteer work at this organization is very rewarding, the nurturing and releasing of animals back into the wild is nothing short of AMAZING. I cant say enough about Kritter Inc.

The only change I'd make to kritter inc is to have warm water during cold months.

I'm a regular volunteer with Kritter, Inc and have immensley enjoyed my experiences at the sanctuary. We've been able to work with a variety of native animals, and have a successful release rate. I was able to release a screech owl that had recovered from an eye injury, and I was hooked! Being able to release an animal that was previously so badly hurt is incredibly rewarding. Kritter, Inc does a wonderful service for Bay County and I plan to continue participating with such a needed center.

The Great!

I've experienced personal fufillment in the raising, rehabilitation and release of native species. It is an amazing feeling to release an animal back into the wild that had been injured or orphaned.

I think Kritter, Inc would benefit from more volunteers - although I understand its difficult to commit to another cause outside a full time job and family - the work Kritter does is special and would enrich anyone's life.

I helped take care of the regular animals while the principal caretakers were involved with the oiled birds rescued from the BP oil spill, and I found the sanctuary to be well-organized, clean, and compassionale. Having someone who will take on this demanding role is a tremendous benefit to the people and the animals of a community.

The Great!

Seeing the animals that were rehabilitated, as well as the ones that died inspite of their efforts.

Increase the number of people who volunteer and donate. While I see no value in rehabilitating exotics like starlings and pigeons, I don't want to be the person who kills them!

As a volunteer I see first hand the time, dedication and passion our Director Lisa Mabry pours into this nonprofit sanctuary. She performs the necessary tasks and treatments with a calm, deliberate and organized demeanor. She is incredibly organized, as observed when viewing the grounds or when referring to administrative duties performed.

The Great!

Rewards come in the form of releases of saved and rehabilitated animals. To know that we have given an animal a second chance in their journey through life is very satisfying.

Bring awareness to the public and encourage community participation
