Have you ever heard the saying "it takes a village to raise a child”? Well in my case it takes dedicated volunteers, rehabbers and hundreds on my Facebook page to help me in my ongoing work.
Long before we became a non-profit organization I would dread the spring time when many baby animals and birds were displaced, injured or became sick. I could only take in so many before I would have to say "I can't take anymore." I didn't have enough money or rehabilitators to care for so many that needed help. My heart would ache for the many who died, simply because there weren't enough resources.
Fast forward to the present time!
I'm proud to say we have been able to take in every critter needing our help. The wildlife rehabilitators under my sponsorship have been tremendous! Some are licensed to take wildlife to their homes, others work at the Refuge helping feed, clean cages and whatever else needs to be done. I am also honored and humbled to have so many on Facebook who make sure I don't want for anything. They are constantly sending best wishes, prayers, money and supplies when needed.
I say I feel humbled would be an understatement. I can honestly say that if it weren't everyone coming together for a joint effort I wouldn't be able to rehab in the capacity that I do.
To all my dedicated rehabbers and great friends on Facebook, thank you and bless you.
