Important

 

At this time we are NOT accepting wildlife. We are currently in the permit application process with the Pennsylvania Game Commission. When we receive our permits we will announce our grand opening. Until that time, please take a moment to learn about us and what we do. You can help us grow by donating today.


We are a PA Nonprofit organization and our 501(c)(3) status is pending. Follow us on social media to meet our future educational animals and to follow our progress.


Wildlife rehabilitation is not a single person or organization.  It is a community of rehabilitators, veterinarians, volunteers, and most important, supporters.

About Us

how it started

 

While mowing the yard on April 16, 2010, I found a baby squirrel. After realizing he was still alive I frantically starting picking the maggots off him and hit Google with a pace unknown to most. I learned a lot that day, most specifically, what a rehabilitator is and what they do!

Almost a year later I lost my job in corporate America and started a sewing business making bedding and enrichment items for small caged animals. My target market was/is wildlife rehabilitators and the sewing business gave me the wonderful fortune of meeting rehabilitators from all over the United States and abroad.

Over the course of the next few years, I slowly and carefully navigated my way through the process to obtain my own license(s), while sub-permitting under another rehabilitator. During those years Snags the Squirrel and Poppy the Groundhog came along and with them came mentors and lifelong friends.

There was a dream of opening my own facility, a facility specializing in the little guys, the underdogs, the squirrels, bunnies, groundhogs, etc. During the chaos of 2020, I decided it was time to make it happen!
