We rescue and rehabilitate wildlife providing temporary housing and medical treatment to a variety of animals in need until they are released back into the wild. We offer rescue services to other wildlife rehabilitators, we provide help with nuisance critters (when possible) and we provide over 150 private acres for wildlife release in two separate locations in Michigan.

We have been blessed to rescue animals for many years and received our non profit status (501c3) in the Spring of 2014. We are members of the IWRC (International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council) and have been licensed by the state of Michigan, DNR.

Hope

Hope

The reason our adventure began. This dove was found in our yard, featherless and homeless, after her nest was destroyed. We quickly learned how to make crop milk and began working with a federally licensed refuge to give Hope the opportunity to fly into the wild. She was successfully released in 2013.
Foxy

Foxy

Foxy and her two siblings were orphaned when their mom was probably hit by a car. They were well fed until they were ready to hunt on their own.
One Lucky Bear

One Lucky Bear

Sadly, hunting season comes around every Fall in Michigan. When it is legal and safe to bait (feed) bears, we provide food in hopes to keep the bears away from the wrong picnic area. They are offered a variety of food…even fruits and vegetables.
