The facility is currently inundated with nearly 500 orphaned baby mallard ducklings, opossum joeys, a variety of squirrels, as well as raccoons with more arriving daily for care.

It costs the facility an average of $125 per animal to rehabilitate, which is why there is a major spring fundraiser.

There are various ways to help with donations. You can:
