Review for Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center, Stroudsburg, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became familiar with Pocono Wildlife Rehab and Education Center shortly after moving to the Poconos with my family in 1993. It wasn't long before my husband and I encountered wildlife in need, and we were so relieved to have Kathy, the person who created this center, to bring these animals to. I honestly don't know what we would have done without her. What I do know is that she is extremely dedicated to the wildlife of this area. Over the years, she cared for many animals we brought to her, a fawn laying in the road, a squirrel with a botfly in its shoulder, blue jay with broken wing, baby squirrels, to name a few, and she gave us sound advise and educated us when we called about things like fledglings, baby rabbits, a skunk in our crawl space, etc. When I recently went to the center for a class on transporting wildlife for WIN, I learned that for all the Pocono Wildlife Center does, they do not receive any funding from the state. All is funded by donations. To see the facility that Kathy Uhler has created, built, maintained, all the work she has done for the wildlife, and all funded with donations is beyond inspirational. I can tell you that if you call the center with a wildlife issue, listen to the experts there and do what they tell you to do. The answer you get may be firm or direct, but it will be honest. Don't debate. They know what they're doing. Be thankful you have them to call. I know I am.
