About Supporting LTWC

Who needs to support us? You!
As our communities spread outward and the forests and wetlands diminish, the survival of our remaining wildlife becomes critical. Without your financial support, many injured or orphaned creatures who desperately need help will be turned away. If these animals, cannot be adequately cared for, the loss affects us all.

Please! Help us to help them. Let us not lose the pleasure of listening to songbirds, watching the flight of wild geese, and knowing that when we walk in the forest, we are not alone.

Where do the funds go?
Funds are used to purchase food, medical supplies, veterinary assistance and housing. Special formulas are needed for the raising of infant mammals and birds. All injured wildlife receive immediate medical attention. For the best possible care, adequate and safe housing is provided. Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, Inc. also provides community education by presenting illustrated and informative lectures to local schools and service clubs, giving children (and adults) a good start in wildlife awareness.
