Appreciation for wildlife rehabbers
My husband and I recently had the pleasure of meeting a wildlife rehabber after we discovered an abandoned baby rabbit. Once we determined the mother was not coming back, we called Christa to see if she could help. She compassionately agreed to take the little guy, despite the very slim odds that he would survive. These amazing rehabbers who freely give of their time, using their own funds, offer a safe haven for countless wild animals. It takes a special person to be able to commit to the constant care these animals require, and sometimes the outcome can be heartbreaking. Volunteering is a rewarding experience, but it can also be a thankless job. The next time you need a wildlife rehabber, please remember to say thank you, and the gift of a donation, I’m sure, is always very much appreciated.
