Rescue & Rehabilitation… Did a Robin just fly into your window? Baby Cottontail get hit by the lawnmower? Is there a goose at the park all wrapped up in fishing line? Through our rehab program, we network with several local veterinarians and rehabilitators to provide emergency care for the sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife. We nurse these animals back to health and offer them their best chance at survival when re-released back into their natural habitat. programs that allow participants hands on opportunities to explore. They are also a thought provoking, educational experience presented interactively to encourage audience participation. Let us know if your group would be interested in a class about wild animals. Animal Awareness Project… This project offers a wide variety of information through literature, brochures, and public relations presented at local events and in cooperation with the media. Educational programs offered to schools and community groups use live animals and fascinating displays. These are exciting and entertaining The Wildlife Rescue Foundation is a non- profit organization founded in 1997, dedicated to the preservation and conservation of our wildlife and natural ecosystems. We achieve this through comprehensive education and outreach programs. When people encounter wild animals, either in nature or in their own rural/urban setting, their fear combined with the lack of knowledge often creates a potentially hazardous situation, especially for the animals. This is where we come in. We are licensed by both the US Fish & Wildlife Service and the Nevada Division of Wildlife to offer services to help neutralize encounters with wildlife. We then seize the newly created “Teachable Moment” to educate those involved in the animal encounter. Take a moment to see what we offer you: Nuisance Wildlife Control… This service helps alleviate such prob- lems as that smelly skunk that took up residence under your porch, the snake in your garage or shed, or that pesky raccoon that is always getting into mischief in your garbage, Koi fish pond, or even your attic. We accomplish control through several means, including the use of specialized traps, capture & relocation, or we take the time to educate the public on co-habitation by explaining the benefits that can be derived from encountering certain animals. We take in exotic animals that can no longer be kept by their owners and place them in suitable adoptive homes. We also accept animals that other local shelters aren’t properly trained or equipped to handle. This provides an excellent outlet for exotic pet owners as well as reduces threats to our native animals, typically as a result of the unwanted and often illegal release of non-native animals.
