Liberty Wildlife Rehabilitation Foundation, Inc.
March 26, 2011
This organization rehabilitates all injured or orphaned native Arizona animals. Over 3500 animals come to Liberty each year. Volunteer based, the people at Liberty devote an extraordinary amount of time and talent to saving animals. In addition, there is an extensive education program for school children and civic groups providing information about Arizona's animals and what the public can do to protect the natural world as part of our legacy for future generations. The group reaches people in every corner of Arizona and rescues animals from all over the state. It has been selected to provide non-eagle feathers to Native Americans throughout the country as part of a US Gov. pilot project. Liberty is a wonderful organization, well established and respected. It's an honor to be a part of the team.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have been thrilled to be involved in releasing a red tailed hawk rehabilitated at Liberty Wildlife. The animal had a broken wing, needed medical attention, a stay in ICU for medication, a period of time healing and gathering strength in a flight cage. When the time came to release him, we went to an area that would be compatible with the habits of this hawk. With gloves on, I held him, wished him well and released him. He was strong and flew beautifully. Liberty has an impressive success rate!
