As a volunteer at Skye's Spirit Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, I can vouch for the amazing work this organization does! They truly care about all creatures, great and small! From majestic Bald Eagles to tiny baby mice, they are all lovingly cared for.

I had the opportunity to attend several events with the wildlife. I was able to tell the public about all of the wonderful things accomplished at Skye Spirit Wildlife. It felt so good knowing that I was able to help raise awareness and funds that get more wildlife back where they belong, in the wild! The people at Skye Spirit Wildlife are so dedicated to what they do! It is inspiring to be around them and the animals!

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

None! This organization is very well run and organized!

I moved to Pa. from Mass. in 2000. A long way from original home I found new and wonderful friends when I started to volunteer at Skyes Spirit Rehab. The Angelos who own and run the rehab, without any help from any one started and built the rehab center. Saving any wildlife that needed help and was legal to handle. What a wonderful place it has turned out to be, a large eagle flight cage, a bob cat for people to visit, a turtle yard. a gift shop and a rehab building. we still need help but no place could be better for the wildlife and people who care.

Skyes Spirit is the heart and soul of the rehabers for wildlife in this area. Originally from Mass. came to Pa. and met the very special people who run the center. The wildlife have a heaven to go to to rest and heal and get all the care and love they need before they are released into the wild again. thank you to Maryjane and Robert fo all the work to heal the wildlife

I started capture & transport for these fantastic people a few years ago. Maryjane & her beautiful family have become very dear friends. They're beautiful spiritually too, they've been very sweet friends & very understanding when I was going through a hard time. On top of caring for all those animals, she'd find time to talk to me. I can never say enough good things! I also put articles in our employees newsletter at work advertising her charity. I recommend them highly to everyone!

There are very few wildlife rehabilitators in the area...there are even fewer people like MaryJane and her family. Not only is she a caring person, she's a fantastic mother for teaching her children and other generations after her that animals are important too. Love this family!

I volunteer at Skye's Spirit Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. The hardwork that Maryjane and Robert do to ensure the PA wildlife is given a second chance is amazing.
I feel a great sense of pride while I am working at the Center and I truly believe being there has helped me become a beter person in my own personal and professional life.
The animals are truly blessed to be in the care of Skye's Spirit where they can be given that boost towards recuperating and making it on their own in the wild after a traumatic event.

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

I was able to release 8 possums back into the wild in the area that they were found.

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

Ensure they have the proper funding to continue their hardwork!
