FRISKYS is a federally licensed wildlife rehab center, successfully run for over 40 years by Colleen and scoares of volunteers. When I was new here in town, I bought stuff at their major fund=raiser, a yard sale, then signed up for a tour of the facility. Then, when they were sued by a new neighbor who allowed her fears of monkeys get the best of her, I went to the county courthouse and heard the judges say basically, the monkeys were there FAR before you decided to move into the neighborhood, so.... they threw out the nuisance suit. In the meantime, thousands of injured birds, squirrels, fawns, etc have been helped through the generousity of donors and other neighbors. It is important to note that this is not a farm, or a zoo. Strict rules protect the wildlife in Friskys, and Colleen has given over her entire life to help rehabilitate them.
