I met Beth through a friend and I was so amazed by her care and dedication to her animals I chose to spend 15 hours of a service learning project here with her and those adorable little animals. Beth is extremely and incredibly experienced with her animals and does an outstanding job of rehablitiating squirrels and rabbits of all ages. I would recomend Beth and her wildlife rehabilitation center to anyone!

A year or so ago my Terrier found a injured young squirrel that had fallen from a pine tree and landed, thankfully, on the other side of the fence. Earlier in the day I had noticed him climbing high in the tree and he appeared quite uncoordinated. It turns out he had been wounded and his back legs were paralyzed. Imagine, here I am with this brave little squirrel who has zero chance of survival in the wild without all of his limbs. Additionally, I have a Terrier that would just love to "finish the job". I called one of the squirrel local rescue organizations, but most do not take paralyzed squirrels. They referred me to Wildlife Rehabilitation in Currie, NC. I called and Beth Havener not only agreed to take him, she offered to come to Wilmington to get him. Instead, I drove him to her place and am so glad I got to see it. She has built an addition to her house to house all of the rescued animals. She knew just what to do for him, fed him, cleaned his wound and has taken care of him ever since. Remember--he will presumably live for several years. That day she had baby and adult rabbits and squirrels in residence.. They were in spacious cages, with lots of natural light and all the comforts of nature she could provide them. The place is spotless and the work is never ending. I am so impressed that someone cares enough for wild creatures they are willing to devote their life to caring for such needy ones. Her commitment is astounding.
