Reviews for Yggdrasil Urban Wildlife Rescue

Rating: 1 stars  

I am the landlord at this property. I had to put in a $30k retaining wall last year to stop errosion from vegetation being torn out and cages being put in their place. These tenants lease was up in May of 2010 and they are behind in (fair rent there is about $3000) rent payments despite the fact that they have (self declared) raised tens of thousands of dollars on line. And the rent board approved my fair rent increase. My mortgage there is $2800 and I have rented this house to the Travis' for 6 years at a large financial loss (initially at $1000 and later $1520 per month) which has been completely unappreciated by the tenants. I had an interested buyer for this property -- who was refused access to see the house -- and I lost the sale. This caused a financial burdeon on my family. I have a handicapped mother who needs a place to live and I am being denied access to my home. I am a single mom with three children. Their father, and my former husband is deceased. There was never an agreement to have any lease time beyond May 2010. Its now a huge burdeon for me and unfair, this now going beyond the agreed upon lease. There is no lease agreement beyond May 2010.

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

It's been a total and complete nightmare.

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

They should move to a non residential setting.

I have researched/contacted many wildlife rescue centers across the country and chose YUWR as my only charity recipient. I like it because it's a small center without big sponsors. Lila the Director of YUWR and her team are such warmhearted, passionate animal lovers. I had chance to meet both Lila and her raccoon team leader Megan.I was so touched by their hard work and gentle souls............. They not only take care of needy wildlife, they make the small donors like me feel very special. They are deserving of more help from big organizations. Thanks to all you volunteers, our animal world is a more wonderful place.

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

helping orphan raccoons.
