We are giving our website a makeover. So keep checking back for updates. Some of the pages will be visible once they are no longer under construction. We have new features such as WREN UPDATES and CASE BLOG to give our followers more of an idea of the daily ins and outs of WREN. We are also adding more ways you can volunteer with and support WREN.

Besides updating our website, we mainly spend our current days handling animal emergencies. Today our cases involved a fawn, raccoons, injured box turtles, songbird fledglings, Red-tailed hawks, and Black vultures among others. Today the majority of our cases required transportation. Unfortunately, this can be difficult to plan in areas where we have few or no volunteers. We desperately need transporters in and around the following locations:

 

  • Brunswick, GA
  • Douglas, GA
  • Kingsport, TN
  • Mobile, AL
  • Thomasville, GA

On our recent transport of an injured American Kestrel from Kingsport to University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine, we used our Your Wildlife Counts app to gather counts while raising funds for local rehabbers in this area. So far, there have been 4,151 total counts. Visit here to view our map to see where counts are being made across the United States.

 

What else does WREN have on their TO DO list?

  • Planning a future wildlife rehabilitation symposium in Knoxville – TBA
  • Fundraising for rehabbers in Alabama and Georgia including a river otter outdoor enclosure
  • Continuously recruiting volunteers and interns to further WREN’s mission
  • Planning a veterinary wildlife medicine workshop in GA – TBA
  • Promoting our Donation Drop Off Box Program
  • Pre-fabricated Enclosure Program – TBA
  • Fishing Line Recyclable Receptacle Program – TBA

Interested in any of the above, contact us for how you can help.
