This site is for those of you that want to donate some money to help the St. Francis Center for Injured and Orphaned Animals. We are completely funded through the generosity of humankind. We had to build a new Black Bear enclosure this past year to stay current with the new State and Federal regulations and that was not cheap. We had to borrow some money from a very generous person and we would life to pay them back as soon as possible.Please donate if you can or at least spread the word and maybe we can pay off this debt and allow us to put more money into the care of the sick and orphaned animals.Please give to help. We really appreciate your generosity.
About our center...
The mission of the St. Francis Center is threefold; to provide rescue services to native orphaned and/or injured wildlife, to provide the necessary medical and supportive care for those animals and return them to the wild, and to educate the general public about wildlife and their habitats so they can form a peaceful coexistence with their wild neighbors. We take in hundreds of animals of all species except those excluded by our Category 2 permits as governed by the Ohio Division of Wildlife and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. We have both state and federal permits for rehabilitation and education. Veterinary services are provided by Dr. Suzanne Terrant at the Johnstown Animal Hospital. We are located in a very rural area just outside Bellville, Ohio on about 15 acres of forest and meadowland that includes a 1.5 acre lake. We are not open to the general public except by appointment as we are primarily a rehabilitation center and we insist on a stress free environment for our animals to recover. It's a great place to rehabilitate if you are an injured wild animal.
