Wildlife Rehabilitation is a profession involving the treatment and care of sick, injured and orphaned wild animals with the goal of releasing them "Back 2 the Wild". For rehabilitation to be considered successful, released animals must be able to survive on their own and be an integral part of their species population.
Although the work can be stressful and demanding the reward is to see an animal recover and be returned to the wild.
Back 2 The Wild Rehab is dedicated to the wildlife of Michigan. We are located in St. Clair County, but we receive calls from all over southeast Michigan. We are here to inform and educate the public on keeping wildlife wild. Our focus is to treat the injured, raise the orphans, and return them back to where they belong... in the wild.
Todays wildlife can be classified as "urban wildlife". They have been forced to live among us..in our neighborhoods, our yards, under our homes, our sheds, boats, RV's, etc...They have had to learn to adapt to us building into their homes..their woods. They have learned to live with us and we must learn to live with them.
Please be tolerant and understanding of our wild neighbors.
BACK 2 THE WILD REHAB IS A 501(C)(3) NON-PROFIT WILDLIFE RESCUE. ALTHOUGH WE ARE REQUIRED TO BE LICENSED BY THE DNR IN ORDER TO RESCUE AND CARE FOR THE WILDLIFE, WE RECEIVE NO FUNDING FROM THE DNR OR THE STATE. OUR RESCUE DEPENDS ON YOUR KIND DONATIONS.
Wild Animals Are Not Meant To Be Caged As Pets
As always, we can not stress to the public enough that you must be licensed, and have the proper training to possess any wild animal. Their natural instincts will always be within them.
They belong in the wild.
