I visit this center and take injured, orphaned, abused wildlife in every chance I get. I have also attended educational lectures there. It is an amazing place with an incredibly dedicated staff of workers and volunteers. They are able to give any animal the very best of care and attention and time to heal. They then release back to nature (where animal was found) In January I was able to go to the release of a hawk I had rescued before thanksgiving - it was amazing to see another hawk fly over within minutes - to greet his returned friend ! Love this place
