AS OF JUNE 18, 2020, WE ARE FINISHING UP THE FINAL STAGES OF TRANSITIONING OUR VOLUNTEER TRANSPORT NETWORK.
We are still doing transports. But we are giving rehabbers and veterinary personnel (that work with wildlife) in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee direct access to our online volunteer network system. This will be an ongoing process. And we appreciate everyone's patience during this transition. This will allow us to expand and focus more on volunteer recruitment, educational events, and fundraising for those in the wildlife rescue community.
How it will work: A member of the public will make arrangements with a wildlife rehabber or veterinary personnel to accept the injured, ill, or truly orphaned wild animal. If that person cannot transport or find anyone that can, the rehabber or veterinary personnel can directly request assistance from our volunteer transporters. If a volunteer can be found, the rehabber or veterinary personnel will notify the person that has the animal and finish making arrangements.
You may find a rehabber or veterinary personnel in our area of coverage that can take a wild animal in need of assistance but is not aware of us. In that case, please e-mail us for assistance.
Also, we are not wildlife rehabilitators. If you find an injured or a truly orphaned wild animal, please use Animal Help Now to find the nearest permitted wildlife rehabilitator or veterinarian able to triage wildlife. The person responsible for finding the injured or orphaned animal is usually the best option for transport as opposed to searching possibly hours or days to find transport help.
