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

Rating: 5 stars  

A baby Robin fell out of its nest on my property. My husband & I were afraid to touch it for fear the mother would reject it. Someone told me to call FM & they gave me the perfect advice. We placed the bird in the nest & kept an eye on it from afar with binoculars until the mother returned. She fed all her babies! Long story short, Fellow Mortals has taught me so much about wildlife. They help educate the public. They protect our wildlife we love so much. I really don't know how they manage to do all they do in the rehabilitation process. That is why I support their mission & have become a regular donor

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

Rating: 5 stars  

One afternoon a couple years ago, my husband ran into the house all
flustered. He told me there was a baby bird on the ground that had
fallen from a nest in the tree. I lifted the bird up and removed it from the
hot sun. I began doing some research to find an organization that could
help me with the baby bird. I didn't know if the mother bird would refuse to
care for it after I had touched it. I found the name of Fellow Mortals & their number from
a neighborhood store that I buy birdseed from. I called and left them a
message. Someone returned my call in about 10 minutes. She advised
me to place the bird back in the nest and then check on the nest to see
if the mother was going to return to feed the babies. One or the other of us watched the nest with our binoculars. Behold! Within about
30 minutes, the mother bird returned with food and proceeded to feed
ALL the baby birds. My husband & I were so happy & relieved that the
baby was going to recieve sustenance. I went to Fellow Mortals the
following day and thanked them profusely for helping us. When my
husband & I were so baffled as to what to do, the Fellow Mortals
Intern was very calming and helpful. I wrote a donation check. When
I read about the organization and that they work strictly on donations,
I knew that they needed financial help if we were going to keep them
helping injured & orphaned wildlife. Ever since, I have felt blessed to
have such a wonderful, compassionate, hard-working, and educational organization to help our wildlife. I feel honored to have
Fellow Mortals Wildlife Hospital as a part of my life.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Lake Geneva Wisconsin. Fellow Mortals asked if I would like to re-introduce a rehabilitated red-tailed hawk onto my property. I have quite a few acres. We all said our goodbyes to the hawk and watched as his healed wings carried him through the sky. I could not help but cry because the sight was so beautiful. .

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to see them expand to be able to take care of even more animals and be able to have the time to educate even more of the public about our precious wildlife.

Role:  Donor & I did some volunteer work during the Holidays.
