HOW we help

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”  Jane Goodall




Now, back to those little critters.  They are cute. We get it. It’s tempting to want to keep an animal if you find it, but please do not! Start with us.

A young animal’s BEST chance for survival is to be raised by its mother. Every reasonable effort should be made to try to return a young animal to its mother. Only after all efforts to reunite them have been exhausted, should the orphan be removed from the wild.


After mom, we are the best bet. Call and we’ll take it a step at a time to see what the best thing to do is and if we can help. 

Our number is:  (715) 838-0326

If you don’t get a person right away, leave a message – Chances are we are holding a bottle, filling a food bowl, or helping someone else. But, your call will be promptly returned.  Thank you!
