Reviews for Wildlife Haven

Rating: 5 stars  

I loved my time volunteering at Wildlife Haven. The care that goes into rehabilitating wildlife at this center is amazing. Each animal is given the unique, individual attention it needs in order to be released back into the wild. The work done by Jane and the entire volunteer crew is inspiring, especially because working with wildlife is a fairly thankless job. They draw so much happiness and satisfaction with each successful release and that's what keeps everyone going.

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

educating the public about wildlife and human/wildlife interactions and learning how to handle wildlife.

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

wish for more volunteers so more people would get to experience what I experienced.

I've been involved with Wildlife Haven since its beginnings. Over the years I have seen hundreds of creatures brought in for help. They are given the best possible care with the goal of getting them back into the wild. Over 75% are given a second chance due to the good work of the people at Wildlife Haven.

The organization also provides a valuable resource to the people of the area. A constant stream of telephone calls and emails arrive: people wanting information about an animal or an animal problem, people from other areas of the state or country looking for help with an injured or orphaned animal. Wildlife Haven is able to answer these questions (they direct the caller to another source if they can't!) and refer them to a rehabilitator in their area if needed.

This is a great organization that provides a valuable service to both people and wildlife!

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

watching the organization grow over the years and seeing the excellence of care provided.

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

like to see more dedicated, dependable volunteers working there.

I have volunteered on and off at Wildlife Haven for almost twenty years. The animals there get such great care and everyone truly wants to help each one have a second chance and a normal life. I learn so much about wildlife when I am there and can in turn share that knowledge with others!

about 12-13 yrs ago we had a apple tree come down in a storm in it was a American Kestrel, it wasn't in very good shape. We called Shelby Police who gave us Wildlife Haven's number in Tiro. That is how I met Jane. We went to a Chili Dinner in Tiro and I signed up to volunteer a year later she gave me a call when she had room for 1 more volunteer. My love for animals and Jane's teachings have changed my life in a wonderful way! Wildlife Haven gives to wildlife what man takes away with cars, saws and fire I have seen animals come in and think this lil kid doesn't have much of a chance, weeks pass with lots of TLC and it goes back into wild.

Jane has opened up a whole new world to me. I have been able to watch her work with and release so many animals over the past 10 years. The reward to watching those little eyes of the ones in care and the trust that they learn to have always touches my heart. Jane educates, encourages, assists, and is always so caring. If only humans could recieve the care and knowledge that she gives to those in her care the world would be a better place. It is an honor to assist her. The animals always come first.

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

Rehablitation of incoming injured animals and their release when ready.

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

None.

As a past volunteer, client & supporter of Wildlife Haven, I highly recommend their care & rehab of injured wildlife. From groundhogs, to raccoons, oppossums, rabbits, birds & more, I've seen many wild animals recover & released back into the wild. It's a good feeling to know you're supporting your local community & giving wild animals a second chance at life.

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

watching injured ducks, groundhogs, raccoons, oppossums, birds & others recover from severe injuries & released back into the wild along w/orphaned baby animals who grew healthy enough to be on their own & free, like wild animals should be.

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

give them more money & volunteers. The place has expanded since I've known them and their wildlife services have grown as more animals get hit by cars, or lose their homes due to habitat loss. It's a well-run facility and fiscally-responsible w/every donation. Well worth supporting this wildlife facility.
