I met Beth through my Daughter Christina. Beth is very knowledgeble about these little animals and has a heart of gold in taking care of each and everyone of these beautiful little creatures. If, people took as good of care of their children as she does these animals. Life would be so much better. She makes sure they are nursed back to great health and sends them back out in the wild. Beth has some she has taken in and will never be able to put them back out in the wild due to disabilities, she makes sure they live full and valued lives. We need more people like her taking care of these creatures. Beth thank you for all that you do daily and for teaching my daughter Christina how to take care of God little creatures. I know you will continue to do great work and giving your all in helping them. Sincerely, Sham Moore

It amazes me that they care for every little creature regardless of size or condition. They fee little baby squirrels with baby bottles, and when they recover and are well they release them to the wild. It takes love and determination to do that year after year. They even adopt some who are to badly hurt to make it on their own. Amazing!

Being someone who values all life, I too have learned so much from the Wildlife Rehabilitation & Resource Center about the dedication and commitment it takes to help the creatures in the wild that occasionally need the help of human friends. The Wildlife Rehabilitation and Resource Center does an incredible job of taking care of the animals that have the good fortune to come into their care. They also do a great job of keeping the public posted on the progress of the animals they are assisting. I wish I lived closer so that I could volunteer my time to such a worthy cause and an amazing place!
