Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals, Bird Sanctuaries, Wildlife Preservation & Protection, Wildlife Sanctuaries

Mission: WILDLIFE RESCUE is an IRS approved non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned wildlife. Located in Friendsville, Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, it is managed by PA-Game-Commission-licensed rehabilitator Carol Shilling and cares for all types of mammals, birds and fowl primarily within a six county area of northeastern Pennsylvania. Since its inception in January of 1993, a wide variety of native wildlife has been helped and released, mostly on the thirty-five acres of wooded and watered land which is dedicated to Wildlife Rescue. Although the numbers increase each year as more and more people are aware of the sanctuary, approximately 450 to 500 animals are treated yearly, with the greatest percentage of these being orphaned babies who would otherwise perish.

I adopted a wonderful cat from here I wanted the certificate to get her spayed, however DO NOT expect that you will ever be able to contact the director, or get a call back. to get the pet fixed. its pretty bad that I HAD to call the local SPCA to get a certificate for that, they were more than helpful with this issue. from now on I will use the SPCA for adoption, much more professional. IF YOU EVER get a call back the director was quite rude, and short with me. very disappointing, But the cat is just a wonderful pet that we totally love
