A community based wildlife rehabilitation program
Help bridge the gap between citizens, animals, rehabilitators and veterinarians by building
networks of communication between these groups.
Why Do We Need Volunteers?
- To educate the public on when an animal truly needs help.
- Provide the public with educational and resourceful information about wildlife through our hotline.
- Provide a transportation link between injured animals and rehabilitators.
- Support local rehabilitators through donations of food & materials.
- Develop a training manual for rescue techniques.
WildNet gives the public immediate information about wildlife in need.
When necessary, volunteers will also help with transportation of the animal to a rehabilitator or veterinarian. Piedmont Wildlife Center provides supplies and support for rehabilitators and veterinarians collaborating with WildNet, as needed.
This is a volunteer-run hotline manned 7 days a week from 8am – 8pm
- Communicate with other rehabilitators to effectively share information and help develop WildNet into an essential resource.
- Provide rehabilitators with support, including training and needed supplies, to continue their much needed work.
- Link rehabilitators with veterinarians to provide low-cost wildlife care.
- Connect rehabilitators with volunteers to help manage the public, animals and supplies.
- Provide veterinary care to wildlife patients that need extensive care.
- WildNet will provide veterinarians with training opportunities.
- Gain experience working with local wildlife species.
- Receive recognition for their efforts, including media attention in special cases.
Collaboration with Rehabilitators and Vets is an important piece of WildNet
