We are a non-profit wildlife rehabilitation center and hospital for injured, sick, and orphaned native Virginia wildlife. Our goal is to heal wildlife, return healthy individuals back into the wild, and educate people about the importance of wildlife. We are state and federally permitted and serve the entire western half of Virginia. We receive no state or federal funding and rely on donations from everyday people to save the lives of wild animals!
