Wildlife Rehab in Action ~

For the care of sick, injured or orphaned native Florida wildlife and release back to the wild.

The Goal of wildlife rehabilitation is to provide professional care to sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals so they can ultimately

be returned to their natural habitat. Animals are held in captivity only until they can live independently in the wild.


The pictures on this website are a sampling of the animals cared for over the years.

Uno and Dos, two little precious Cottontails.
They came all the way from Middleburg where a rescued retriever named 'Hero"
 found the babies and gently brought them home to her human rescuer.

The babies are approximately 8 days old.

Look at the tiny white "cotton" tail.

One baby has opened both eyes! They are 10 days old now.



When Uno and Dos were released they were in a rush to go.

By the time I got the camera ready, one was already gone.
The second photo only showed the woods.

Not sure why they were taken from the nest.

The Meaning of Rehabilitation...

To face yet another day just like the one before. We forgo sleep, time with family and friends, and any time at all for ourselves. And yet, when life is given back, a success is noted, a victory won, we are renewed to continue with this work. Those who are gifted with a great love for animals and nature and the ability to help save their lives have no choice but to do all that is humanly and humanely possible.

This website was created to help us appreciate the wild animals we make our home
with and to educate ourselves about their wonders.
