We believe every animal deserves a chance to live a happy, healthy life.
Every year, we get hundreds of calls about injured and orphaned wildlife. Some just need a bit of TLC and a safe place to heal; others require complex surgery and lengthy rehab; a few will need a lifetime home. The costs to feed, house and provide veterinary care for these wild ones can be staggering. But we believe that humans have a responsibility to help these innocent and beautiful creatures. Especially since, too often, the damage done to them is through our species' carelessness and cruelty.
They can't ask for help.
But we have to.
The truth is, we couldn't do any of this without caring, compassionate animal lovers like you. Your donations go directly to the care of the animals. Abbe-Freeland operates with a small, all-volunteer staff and, honestly, we often struggle to make ends meet. We are grateful for every dollar you can give.
The cost of care:
One little woodchuck doesn't eat all that much but food and vet care for hundreds of wild ones sure adds up. Last year alone, some of the costs we incurred included:
$26,175 for food
$8,556 for veterinary care
$2,114 for fencing and building materials
$6,755 for supplies
$5,642 for utilities
