10/11 News Interview
Thank you to Channel 10/11 News in Grand Island for interviewing our WRT Rehabber LeeAnn Powell. Thank you LeeAnn for taking the time to spread the word about WRT. You can see the interview here. Both the Central Nebraska Humane Society and Wildlife Rescue Team, Inc. were featured in this interview.
Our volunteers are available from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, including all holidays. The Hotline Number is a 24 hour answering service available for after hours, to take messages. There are some volunteers that are available for after-hours care, depending on the type of animal. Please call the Hotline if you have questions about a wild animal, need assistance with an injured or orphaned animal or you would like more information on becoming a member of WRT!
During the spring and summer months our volunteers are very busy with animal care. If there is any way you can transport the animal to a WRT member, it would be very helpful and much appreciated. The on-call person can direct you to the closest WRT volunteer available based on your location.
If you have any questions or concerns about injured or orphaned wildlife, please call the Hotline at (402) 473-1951.
