Living with Wildlife

Of particular interest during summer:
Fireworks and Wildlife
What to Do if You Find a Baby Animal
Learn about Coyotes
How to Handle Raccoon Issues

An important part of our mission is helping humans live in harmony with wildlife. This includes providing information about safe and enriching ways to interact with wildlife and ways to avoid wildlife-borne diseases as well as stories about some of our recent patients.

Please explore the links at the right-hand side of this page and learn more about wildlife and wildlife care.

These and other wildlife rehabilitation stories are part of the Shelter's periodic newsletter. If you would like to receive the newsletter, please consider donating to the shelter.

Educational Presentations
Another way in which we fulfill our educational mission is by providing live-animal presentations. For instance, we've given presentations to classrooms, Rotary clubs, and other non-profit organizations. Learn more about our education programs or call 206.855.9057 to arrange a presentation.
