I first heard about Sunshine Haven Wildlife Rehab about 4 years ago. My neighbor had some baby bunnies and their mother had been killed by a car. I found Sunshine Haven and delivered the bunnies to them for care. I was absolutely amazed at their operation. They not only take all species of wildlife, but they provide a tremendous service to the public by educating them on our indigenous wildlife. Without Sunshine Haven, Riverside and the surrounding cities would have no option available when they find injured or orphaned wildlife. I was so impressed with their operation that I began taking the necessary classes so I could volunteer my time to help this organization. It is a 24/7 operation and takes a tremendous amount of time and money to accomplish what they do, but it all seems worth it on release day! Pictured are the bunnies that I first brought into Sunshine Haven

Took an injured Red Shouldered hawk in today. What a wonderful, knowledgeable, and caring rescue. What this place does is beyond words and they deserve any help they can get. Without this amazing place, many wild creatures would not stand a chance.

This organization has always been extremely helpful. I've contacted them for help several times and they have always given great information to help out animals. They give me hope people care about wildlife.

Thank you so much Sunshine Haven Wildlife Rehab for being such kind souls, I don’t know what our injured wildlife would do with out all your help, love and compassion. It’s amazing to think of the hundreds and hundreds of animals you help save and release each and every year. I am so thankful to have such an amazing wildlife hospital here locally, right in my own county (Riverside). Thank you for being there for these animals, that have either been hurt, sick or abandoned as babies - these animals would have otherwise died without your help. Couldn’t ask for a better place then Sunshine Haven.

I have had many experiences with Sunshine Haven Wildlife Rehabilitation. I'm one of those people the neighbors call on when they find an abandoned baby or injured critter, and they trust me to make sure they get cared for. I, in turn, call on Sunshine Haven. One day a friend brought me an injured opossum who had obviously been nursing but no babies could be found. I took her to Karolyn at Sunshine Haven, and she after she cared for the injuries, she put her in a cage with very young joeys who had lost their mommy. We held our breath as we watched the mother check over the babies, then she took over cleaning and nursing them as if they were hers. After those were grown enough to be weaned, Karolyn let her act as surrogate mother to another group, then released her into the wild to live her own life.

I learn so much from Sunshine Haven Wildlife Rehabilitation. They share a lot of info about things I didn't know like what to do if you find a baby bird. I just moved onto wooded property with lots of wildlife and have already come across an injured bird.
