Education, Awareness & Compassion
Humans encounter wildlife on a daily basis and whether or not you are an animal lover; you may be faced with the moral issue of what to do when this happens. Do you turn the other cheek and let an animal unnecessarily suffer? Or, do you try and seek help?
TWRG is a group of wildlife rehabilitators that support each other and offer the community a place to turn to when this happens. Urban sprawl and human activities such as, vehicles, domestic pets, intentional or unintentional poisonings, window collisions, trapping or tree removal are just a few scenarios that cause thousands of wildlife to become injured, orphaned, or otherwise compromised yearly.
Wildlife Rehabilitation is the act of caring for such animals and Wildlife Rehabilitators are those appointed by the state and allowed to do so. Wildlife Rehabbers work predominantly out of their home and volunteer their time & expertise to the care of our native injured, sick and orphaned wildlife. They are mentored and trained so they can provide proper nutrition, husbandry and basic triage. In addition most also attend continuing education classes and work with licensed veterinarians to provide the best care possible for a successful release back into the wild and a second chance at life.
Although Rehabbers are appointed by the state, they are not paid or reimbursed for their service which, can become quite costly.
The generosity of our community is key, and allows TWRG to continue its mission of rescue, release & rehabilitation of our injured, orphan or otherwise compromised wildlife.
100% of all donations to TWRG goes directly to the care of our wildlife patients.
