Our Mission:

As more people migrate from urban areas into wildlife habitat, the chances of interaction between humans and other species increase. Sometimes these encounters are enjoyable and positive, but often accidents happen that injure the wildlife. Wildlife Shelter, Inc. exists to respond to such injuries, providing a place for people to bring orphaned, injured or sick wildlife for treatment and release back to the wild.
