Wild animals have specific needs that must be provided for proper development.
If you have found an orphaned or injured wild animal, please keep it warm, dark, and quiet until further assistance is given by a licensed wildlife rehabilitator.
Warmth can be the single most important thing provided to a young animal and may save its life. Reducing stress by keeping it in a dark and quiet area until it is transferred to a rehabilitator can be just as life saving.
Thank You for Your Support!
A Mentorship Program through the Ohio Wildlife Rehabilitators Association
In an effort to support and encourage new individuals to the field of wildlife rehabilitation, OWRA has launched Reach & Teach, a mentorship program designed to offer assistance to members who have completed OWRA’s Introduction to Wildlife Rehabilitation training. OWRA is inviting member facilities and individuals permitted through the Ohio Division of Wildlife to reach out and teach new rehabilitators through methods such as on-premise volunteering, facility tours to share ideas, and/or phone availability to offer advice.
Help Fund the Donald L. Burton Veterinary Student Scholarship
To honor the life and legacy of Dr. Don Burton, a Go Fund Me Sight has been established. This fund will set up an endowment for the Donald L. Burton Veterinary Student Scholarship to assist students interested in working with wildlife in attending the National Wildlife Rehabilitation's Annual Symposium. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a vet student who has best demonstrated a desire to help wildlife and meet the grant requirements. The recipient will receive funding to cover the cost of symposium registration, travel, and hotel accommodations - plus a stipend for meals.
