Review for Fellow Mortals, Inc., Lake Geneva, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

From the small mouse or vole to the larger bald eagle or deer, the staff at Fellow Mortals are dedicated to saving each one from their injuries and returning them to the wild. Several years ago I took a sick robin to the hospital and after the admission, asked to tour the facility. I saw animals everywhere in different stages of recovery and learned that the goal is to release them back into the wild. I wrote a check immediately to support the efforts I saw and continue to fund their work eight years later. Where else can you be a part of caring for 2,000 injured wildlife that are rehabilitated and released each year! I can be assured that those animals who are not in pain but cannot be released due to their injuries will be cared for at the facility and not euthanized. Read the following poem penned by the project leader, Yvonne Wallace; http://fellowmortals.org/at-heart/ to gain insight into her passion for the fellow mortals to whom she's dedicated her life. I've joined her team as a monthly donor and will continue to support this work for the rest of my life!

Review for Fellow Mortals, Inc., Lake Geneva, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In her words, Yvonne Wallace Blane, Director of Fellow Mortals gives voice to the themes that are central to the mission of this wildlife rehabilitation center in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. "Animals that are treated and recover are released back into the wild. Those that have injuries that would prevent them from surviving are given a permanent home at Fellow Mortals."  As an example, creatures such as Common Nighthawks are being hand-fed four times a day because these birds only feed on the wing at dawn and dusk.  Because of the nature of the injuries these birds incurred, five of the six birds currently being treated will remain with their caretakers for the rest of their lives. Sherman, one of the resident Nighthawks, became a parent and role model this year for a baby Nighthawk orphaned soon after hatching. He successfully fostered his baby until he was old enough to release. I support Fellow Mortals with monthly contributions and will continue to do so for the rest of my life!

While we do find education and foster placement for as many unreleaseable animals as possible, there are limited options as wild creatures cannot be kept as pets. It is a very special wild one that can adapt to a life in captivity after living free.
