Love WINs!- Help us Rebuild

Wildlife in Need is a 501c3 non-profit located in Charlestown IN dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of indigenous wildlife and a safe harbor to an array of exotic and endangered species.  We pride ourselves on the education of our patrons and community about the species for which we provide refuge. As a non-profit organization, we are funded solely by the public.
Wildlife in Need endured a devastating loss of life, resources and property after fire broke out at our main barn on January 12, 2016.  Our cherished bird and reptile center was part of this loss.  Our food supplies including frozen, refrigerated and dry goods perished along with storage areas, including our walk-in freezer.  Also lost was our property workshop, that housed all tools, maintenance items and construction supplies that are being used for habitat reconstruction.
Your donation will be immediately be used to replace items for food storage, such as a walk-in freezer.  We will also purchase the multitude of tools and building supplies needed to begin the process of rebuilding from the ashes.
We are truly humbled and overwhelmed by the offers to donate and help.  Your donation will immediately impact the rebuilding of our Ambassadors' environments and secure us in our ability to continue focusing on their care, well-being and happiness.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to the tips of our tails.
