Now is a great time of year to collect or continue to collect products for WRT to turn into cash. Please see the list on our Get Involved/Ways You Can Help Page. Collect things like Lunchables kits, juice pouches, Solo cups and Naked Grape wine corks. We can send the products in to be recycled into something else and get a little money in the process. That money is then spent to purchase supplies and formula for the wildlife!
Join us at the PetSense store in Grand Island on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and again on Sunday, Oct. 4 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. There will be raffles, games, door prizes and booths. Check out the hot dog stand, silent auction and adoptable pets! WRT will have a table there to talk to people about what we do! If you are interested in becoming a volunteer rehabber, that is the best time to meet other members and have your questions answered!
This baby raccoon was injured during the recent storms near Minden, Nebraska.
Your donations on Give to Lincoln Day will help us pay for his vet bills and food during his rehabilitation process.
What is Wildlife Rescue Team, Inc. ?
Wildlife Rescue Team, Inc. is a non-profit, all volunteer-based organization dedicated to the raising and rehabilitating of orphaned and injured wildlife from the state of Nebraska, with the goal being to release them back into the wild.
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.
