Sprout came here as a baby; she was donated to us as an education ambassador when her previous owner could no longer provide care. Sprout was so young at the time that she needed 24 hour care and became attached to our Animal Care Staff, who took her home every night. When her condition became stable we realized that she would need glider companions in order to thrive with us.

We Need Your Help

With over 80 animal ambassadors, and over 1,000 sick injured and orphaned animals brought to our center each year - every dollar counts. We rely solely on people like yourself to support the work we do.

We receive no State or Federal funding and depend entirely on private funds to carry out our Mission.
