My name is James Jablon and I have been doing wildlife rehabilitation for almost 20 years. I have had the opportunity to visit and help at SOS many times over the years. Judy Watson, along with her volunteers, spend all their time caring for all the needs of the various animals in their care, while continuing to find ways to expand their "helping hands." The work they do is thankless, as the ones they help have no voices to speak with; but there seems to be no lack of communication between the animals and the staff. As they approach each other at a fence, you can hear the animals ,"Welcome" and the caretakers,"What can I do for you." I have been to many facilities that are run as a business, but SOS is run as a family. A financial burden is always present, as there is no income and help is always needed to ensure that these animals continue to get the care they deserve at SOS.
