Rehabilitating injured animals entrusted to our staff often requires extensive veterinary care.  We hope you’ll review the list below and bring an item with you when you visit the facility.  This will allow us to use our baseline budget for the general care and well being of our existing collection. Please make sure all food items are in the original, sealed package. Your generosity and support is greatly appreciated.
