Bohollow Wildlife Shelter consists of two registered voluntary wildlife shelters, each privately owned and operated by experienced wildlife carers, theyare skilled in all areas of wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release. Both Bohollow shlethers are located north of Shepparton in North East Victoria. (Taken from the Bohollow Webiste you can read more about the formation of Bohollow here on their web page)
This time of year is crazy with baby animals coming in left right and centre. Kirsty who runs the Bunbatha shelter told me she has been getting in TWO young magpies PER DAY! And that is just the magpies! Bohollow is a not for profit organisation and they receive NO FUNDING from the government but rely on donations from the general public.
Many people call Bohollow when they have injured wildlife including local vets who also depend on Bohollow to provide veterinary care and rehabilitation for many species of wildlife. Some of these calls require extensive rescue, including time, travel, equiptment and expertise.
You can find may of their amazing rescue stories on their Facebook page here
Bohollow have many types of animals in their care, many of which need specialist foods and that is not cheap! Kirsty, who runs the Bunbatha shelther had to travel to Warragul (about 3.5hrs each way) to pick up food for the raptors recuperating at Bohollow and it was a very expensive trip with MANY birds of prey at the shelther.

I don't ever see the owners of Bohollow with their hands out but now is a really desperate time for the shelter, So many animals who need to be cared for so they can be relaesed back into the wild. And many other animals who will need help in the future. So PLEASE if you could spare anything at all, do consider donating to Bohollow. They are a 24/7 organisation and it is all run with their own money.
Please share this this others.
And on behalf of the many MANY animals who can not speak but need help,
