Mission

We are a state and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation center consisting of a team of volunteers with various educational backgrounds and interests, including students, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and citizens. Our goal is to protect and conserve the wildlife and ecosystem of Indiana through rehabilitation, public education, networking, and providing an educational volunteer experience.

 

 
 

 

Rehabilitation

We are dedicated to the best veterinary and most humane care possible for wildlife. We seek to ensure the health, safety, and ultimate release of injured, orphaned, diseased, and displaced animals, including federal and state endangered or threatened species.

Public Education

Our goal is to develop a community of people committed to helping wild animals and preserving the ecosystem of Indiana. We hope to encourage an interest, appreciation, and understanding of wildlife through education programs for groups such as schools, scout troops, civic organizations, and businesses. We also strive to educate about humane, non-lethal means of conflict resolution between humans and animals.

Networking

We continue to coordinate our unique services with many other organizations concerned with wildlife, such as the National Wildlife Rehabilitation Association. In addition, we appreciate the assistance from businesses and hospitals who have generously
donated critical supplies to the center.

Educational Experience

The center has developed a volunteer network of citizens and Purdue University students, for whom the center provides a unique hands-on experience in wildlife rehabilitation and non-profit organization operations. In addition, veterinarians and faculty from the Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine have donated their time and expertise to perform vital surgeries and procedures on animals at the center.
