We were designated as an essential service, because wild animals are essential. They need your support more than ever.

In April, we received over 500 requests for assistance with sick, injured and orphaned wild animals — over three times our average number of calls. COVID-19 has had a major impact on our rescue work because so many more people are home, in nature, and coming into contact with wildlife.

Unfortunately, at the same time the need to rescue animals has grown dramatically, COVID-19 has led to our county grant funding to be cut in half and our regular source for donated food and supplies to indefinitely suspend in-kind donations.

We need your help!

Our goal is to raise an emergency $5,000 to offset the donations we’ve lost because of this public health crisis. This will cover food and supplies for the increased number of animals in our care.

Recently, we were asked to rescue some unusual-to-us animals – as in, Not Wildlife.
We were moved into action by their need and we have launched a fundraising campaign to get them the care they need. You can read about it here:

Thank you.

Here at Yggdrasil Urban Wildlife Rescue, we are thankful.

We are thankful for the emergency response volunteers who disrupt there lives on a regular basis to help wildlife in need.

We are thankful for the caring, loving souls who are our foster-care volunteers who nurture orphaned wildlife babies and then let them go to be wild when the time is right. It is a bittersweet kind of work and we are so grateful to those who take it on even when they know it will be painful.

We are thankful to each and every member of our society who stops there day to try to find help for an animal in trouble – to all those scared voices over the wildlife hotline, thank you. Now more than ever before we need those caring voices.

We are thankful to the individuals and the foundations who see what we do and want to support it even when we are so overloaded with the actual work that we struggle to get the grant applications in on time, or the thank you letters written. Thank you for seeing through the fog of need that surrounds us and taking our hand in support.

We are also thankful to every one of us humans who sees the need to protect wildlife and the environment we all share. We are walking in the shadow of climate change threatening everything we love, but Together we can still make a difference.

We are thankful for the Earth and the unending beauty and strength we find here.

What are you thankful for?

May you all have a loving and caring Thanksgiving.
