Release Sites Needed
The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is always looking for safe places to release hand-raised orphaned Cottontails, Raccoons, Opossums, Gray Squirrels and Mallards. These release sites need to be private land that is under your control. Release sites do not need to include dozens of acres and do not have to be strictly rural. Unfortunately, urban lots and small suburban yards are not good environments for recently released wild animals.
