FYI per their press release:
The Wildlife In Need Center (WINC) will “Celebrate 25 Years of Saving Wild Lives in January 2019.” The Center was founded by Nancy Frank and officially opened its doors to the public in January 1994. In our inaugural year, we cared for 837 wild patients. In 2018, currently that patient care number has grown to over 3,300 admissions of wild patients, representing 140 species this year.
Today WINC’s mission remains committed “To provide wildlife rehabilitation to Wisconsin wildlife with the intent to release back to the native habitat, conduct research designed to further the positive impact of rehabilitation, and provide quality community education programs and services.”
Generous donations over the past 25 years have provided for the care of 61,000 injured, orphaned or sick wildlife. Our wildlife education programs and animal ambassadors continue to meet the demand, delivering over 150 programs a year reaching over 30,000 people. Our fundraising milestone is to raise $25,000 by the end of 2019 so together we can continue “Saving Wildlife Together!”
About the Wildlife in Need Center:
The Wildlife In Need Center is a nonprofit organization located in Oconomowoc, WI that provides treatment and care of sick, injured and orphaned indigenous wildlife with the goal of releasing healthy animals back to their native habitats in the wild. Since its inception in 1994, over 61,000 animals representing more than 140 species have been brought to the center for care or medical attention. Open 365 days a year, the Wildlife In Need Center is staffed with a small team of paid staff, a very large group of dedicated volunteers and is funded
entirely by private donations and grants. The center works extensively with schools and community organizations to help raise awareness of the important contribution southeastern Wisconsin’s unique wildlife makes to the region. Through WINC’s fourteen Educational Animal Ambassadors, coupled with media presentations including television appearances, WINC educates over 30,000 people each year.
