From Rescue to Release
Ohio Wildlife Center
Support for Ohio Wildlife Center will help their wildlife hospital continue to treat injured animals in central Ohio.
Ohio Wildlife Center has rescued, rehabilitated, and provided medical care for injured, orphaned, and ill wildlife for 37 years. It operates the state’s largest donation-supported wildlife hospital.
Support for this Better Together project helped cover the costs of emergency veterinary exams and assessments for 25 severely injured animals. These funds provided the tests, treatments, and medications the animals need for a full recovery. Thank you for helping the wildlife hospital at Ohio Wildlife Center treat injured animals in central Ohio.
We are Better Together!
"Our Wildlife Hospital assessed 8,105 patients in 2020. The care that we are able to provide at our veterinary hospital is an essential part of the rehabilitation efforts for each animal to reach a successful release back to its natural habitat."
—Dr. Melinda Marksz, DVM, Chief Veterinarian
"For 37 years of operation, Ohio Wildlife Center has delivered care with compassion, and guided the public with knowledge and expertise. We've cared for more than 140,000 animals since 1984, and requests for our help rise each year. The needs are great, and community support is critical so we can respond to all wildlife emergencies."
—Stormy Gibson, Interim Executive Director
