It takes well-trained, caring and
motivated people giving their time to care for injured,
orphaned or sick animals and restore them to health.
Rehabbers work hand-in-hand with veterinarians and others to
raise, train and/or restore the ability to live in the
wild. This takes an individual who cares enough to get
involved in rescuing the animal and seeking a rehabber
or wildlife veterinarian. It takes a veterinarian who is
dedicated to the concept of caring for the injured and
ill wildlife, and rehabbers who are willing to raise, care for
and teach the animals to live in the wild. This is long
hard work, often the only reward is a 30 second
release where the animal is returned to where it
belongs. It's long hours, sleep deprivation, and
having to make life and death decisions.
only reward is in your heart.
