It's Baby Season in Wildlife Rehab!

9 week coyote pups

4 week old raccoon

4 week old mink

Our R-PAWS program has been a busy one this summer!

R-PAWS stand for Rehabilitation Program at the Wildlife Sanctuary. This is a program run on donations and volunteer time. Last year, the R-PAWS program admitted nearly 4,500 orphaned, injured, and ill wildlife from the public. In 2011, we have already admitted over 1,000 mammals! Here are a few pictures of some of the animals we have been caring for.

You can help support the R-PAWS program in a few ways:
Donate items from our "baby list" posted on our website!

Walk in our Walk for Wildlife event on Saturday, September 17th!

Call Animal Care at the Wildlife Sanctuary if you find an orphaned or injured animal! The number is (920) 391-3685.

Volunteer your time to help clean cages, fold laundry, or prepare food for the animals!

As always, we thank you for your support and we hope you have a great day!

Owl rescued from soccer net!

Here are some "great" photos from a Great Horned Owl rescue! Our intern David and our animal keeper Amy were alerted to this little guy in need of help thanks to some concerned citizens who called the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary. Since the owl was just leaving the nest and was not quite on his own, we added him to our rehab brood of young Great Horned Owls that have been rescued this spring. This rescued owl is doing well and is on his way to recovery, thanks to our dedicated R-PAWS volunteers and from your support!
