As a former wildlife intern at this hospital, I can honestly say Fellow Mortals is the most professional and compassionate wildlife rehabilitation center in not only Wisconsin, but likely the entire country. The care that all of the staff display for every patient is truly remarkable. Whenever they return phone calls regarding wildlife questions they are always so helpful, knowledgable, and kind. I'm proud to recommend such a wonderful hospital, and would encourage anyone in Wisconsin who thinks an animal is injured or orphan to call Fellow Mortals to see what should be done.
Fellow Mortals has been a priceless resource for both the wildlife of their part of the state and the people in their region who care about wildlife for more than two decades. This is a professional organization fueled mostly by the sheer will, compassion and committment of their handful of staff. This staff works, long, long hours to make sure the animals in their care are treated with kindness and respect. Fellow Mortals and their professional, caring staff are valued colleagues and friends whom we greatly value.
Review from Guidestar
I always love to take every chance I can get to praise Fellow Mortals. I had two internships 6 years ago, working a estimated total time of 10 months full time, where I had the unique opportunity to learn to care for wildlife. I am now a veterinarian, and there are too few of us that know about wildlife. I work with 5 veterinarians, and even though I am the youngest, they rely on me for wildlife advice, and sometimes even calling me on my day off. I can honestly tell you that wildlife care differs with every rehabber or hospital, but Fellow Mortals is one of those rare places that cares for wildlife the RIGHT way. They are always striving to learn more with medical care. In addition to giving high quality care, they also educate students by giving them internships to learn how to care for wildlife and to carry that knowledge with them wherever life may take them. Fellow Mortals deserves it.
Review from Guidestar
My wife and have been federally licensed bird rehabilitators for 30 years. I have never seen a more caring and competent environment where the use of funds is frugal and used is the best interest of the creatures.
Fellow Mortals is a truly unique and amazing wildlife hospital. They provide high quality care to injured and orphaned wildlife while rehabilitating them to be released back to the wild. They are compassionate, ethical, knowledgeable, and extremely committed. I have had the honor of working with them in the past in various capacities and can not recommend them more highly.
