When I found my snake under the dryer after three days of being loose I was devestaed and had no money for a vet. The snake was a wild caught western hognose I was keeping as a pet and had for almost a year. I took him to Florida Wildlife who then put me in contact with Kritter, Inc. She was very helpful, learned my snake must have found a rat nest in my dryer and while eating the baby rats ingested some dryer lent. She was able to remove some of the dryer lent and gave him some fluids. She was also able to save me money on mice every month for my other snakes by giving me the number of a local breeder.

I would like to write for Kritter, Inc. Wildlife Sanctuary and offer my story. I found a bird on our campus that wouldn't fly. It was a baby and I didn't want to see a cat get the little thing. I contacted Kritter, Inc. and it was no problem for me to bring that baby bird there. They accepted our baby bird with no questions, except where did he come from type questions only so they would know how to treat it. I can't tell you how kind the people where to me and to this baby bird. They took him right in and started making sure the bird wasn't dehydrated, hurt, etc. These folks do so much with so little it absolutely makes one wonder how they do it. Yes, they do small fundraisers but the the economy the way it is people can't afford to help as much as they normally would. I would love to recommend this group for a scholarship, or award. I wish I personally could fund them. I think what they do with what they have it amazing. Keep up the great work, the animals that you help are God's animals and I believe he would want us to protect them. I know your area is small Kritter, Inc. so I promise if I win the lottery you'll want no more and neither will the critters we all love so much. And thank you for taking care of the baby bird you helped me save. I had called other places before I found you and they couldn't help so I'm so glad you are there. It's hard to explain to a child why you can't help a wild critter but when my son saw me bring the bird to your place it showed him that we can care for the wildlife in our area.
