One of our latest rescues
We are in the full swing of our rehab season. As rehabbers, our seasons aren't so much winter, spring, summer and fall, but squirrel, bunny, raccoon and waterfowl!
Our volunteers are busy with various wildlife that we are rehabbing until they can be released into the wild, like the raccoon babies shown above.
If you are interested in becoming a rehabber and helping wildlife, please visit our Join the Team! page for information.
THANK YOU to Irving Middle School in Lincoln for collecting Terracycle products for us!
All On-Call 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.
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.
