Liberty Wildlife is one of the premier rehabilitation agencies in the United States. I have been working with Liberty Wildlife for several years and it is one of my favorite non-profits. They operate on a shoe string budget but help over 4,000 injured, abandoned and orphaned native wildlife return to nature through rescue and rehabilitation services. In addition, Liberty Wildlife provides over 400 educational programs each year to schools, community organizations and event -- helping individuals understand the importance of protecting and preserving wildlife, habitats and nature. They also provide consultation services to utility companies and others that often impact native habitats negatively. The organization is run primarily by over 350 volunteers and very little staff -- a wonderful organization that deserves the community's support and appreciation!
