Sponsor An Animal

On average, we rehabilitate about 220 animals each year in our Wildlife Rehabilitation program. About 60% of these animals are returned to the wild. The costs for daily care and maintenance (including food, veterinary care, shelter, grooming, etc.) at the Rick McPherson Outdoor Education Center and Wildlife Rehabilitation Center are approximately $180,000 per year. Your donation helps us care for the animals, birds of prey and injured wildlife residing on our campus.
