Double Your Donation for Wildlife!

SHARE:

We’ve received a matching challenge of $15,000 from the Werndli Charitable Trust to support the hard work of our wildlife rehabilitators to renest or heal and release wildlife!

Local Wildlife Need Your Help!

When you give by June 30th, your donation will be doubled!


Every year, DCHS's Wildlife Center cares for thousands of orphaned, ill, and injured wildlife, like this Baltimore Oriole fledgling. The oriole arrived at DCHS as an orphan, showing signs of dehydration and nutritional deficiency. DCHS's Wildlife Center is providing care to this sweet bird and it grows stronger every day. The fledgling is currently housed in a songbird flight pens. Once it can safely survive on its own, we will release the young bird in its natural habitat where it was found.

You make the care of orphaned, ill, and injured wildlife like this orphaned Baltimore oriole possible.

The Werndli Charitable Trust is matching up to $15,000 in donations to the Wildlife Center. Every dollar counts! DCHS's Wildlife Center is 100% funded by donations from our community.


DCHS's Wildlife Center is funded by generous donations from the community. Any additional funds raised will be used to continue the work our Wildlife Center staff does every day to help injured, orphaned and ill wildlife from throughout the Greater Madison region.
