Fellow Mortals, Inc.
March 18, 2012

Fellow Mortals is truly an organization with a heart. It is a collective heart of kind and caring souls who take the time out of this busy world to care about the some of the most defenseless and vulnerable fellow mortals, our injured and orphaned wildlife. Most recently, I've brought a squirrel that had suffered traumatic head injury when hit by a car. I found him writhing on the centerline of the road in the rain near my home. I put him into my car wrapped him in a towel, and put him into a picnic basket I had with me. I heard him crying all the while as I was leaving a message for Fellow Mortals that I had found him and hoped to bring him in before it was too late. They called me back and said it was ok to bring him in right away. He continued to cry softly. When I got him there, they attended to him right away and I left with hope that he'd make it. I found out sometime later that he did make it and was able to be released into the wild. I've got tears in my eyes writing about this and I'm so glad I happened to drive by at that time to help him. I've also attended the Fall Migration fundraiser and met many others who share compassion and love for these our "Fellow Mortals". Several years ago I found a rock dove (homing pigeon) on the road. I called and brought him in because he had also been struck by a car. He was able to be rehabilitated and because he was a domesticated bird, he couldn't be just released into the wild to fend for himself so I was able to adopt him and 2 others and provide a home for them for several years. I've donated to the organization for each animal I've brought in and I can think of no other group for which I have the deepest respect. We are lucky people (and animals) on this earth to have them.
