"Wildlife Welfare Inc., is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned wildlife. Formed in 1991 by licensed wildlife rehabilitators and wildlife lovers, Wildlife Welfare continues to support home-based rehabilitators. We serve a large 10 plus county area in North Carolina."

"Local rehabilitators are involved in helping over 2000 animals each year to return to their natural habitat including Gray Squirrels, Virginia Opossums, Cottontail Rabbits, Flying Squirrels, Chipmunks, Groundhogs, and other small mammals as well as a variety of songbirds, waterfowl and fawn."

"We are a group of about 40 volunteers who devote unlimited time, energy and personal resources to nurse and nurture the injured and orphaned animals placed into our care."

Dean Thomas CottonTail

"The animals stay in our care, on average, 5-6 months. One of our main objectives is to, at the very least, keep an animal from suffering. It is our goal to prevent an orphaned or injured creature from lying outside in the elements and needlessly suffering because no one cared for it. It was an easy decision for each of our volunteers to join Wildlife Welfare. We are all very passionate about wildlife and usually develop a special fondness for one species."

"Wildlife Welfare, Inc receives no institutional nor governmental funding. Funds for purchasing formula, feeding supplies and medications are obtained solely through private donations and membership fees."

C. To provide encouragement and training to individuals in pursuit of their rehabilitator license, and provide ongoing training of new techniques and advances in wildlife rehabilitation
