Wildlife Rescue Seeks Non-Profit Status
Organized by: Sandra French
We wish to incorporate to facilitate and advertise the local availability of care and rehabilitation of orphaned and injured wildlife. Facilitation includes fund-raising with the goal of lessening the financial burden on the volunteer wildlife rehabilitators. These people are licensed by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources but are offered no help in any form to accomplish the work. Advertisement could bring in more people to become either rehabilitators or to become transporters, volunteers who bring animals to the rehabilitators, saving the rehabilitators both time and money. Large areas of southeast Iowa are without rehabilitators. Cultivating more would alleviate some of the pressure on current individuals.
