SMALL DONATIONS HELP US SAVE MANY LITTLE LIVES! For just $2.50 we can feed a songbird seed, mealworms, greens, fruit and eggs for a week. For $3.50 we can feed a bird of prey for a week. We are hard at work from our homes and our nursery will open soon. Please help us to saves lives if you can. Thank you for all of your support and love

Living or dead, trees provide nest sites for so many species of wildlife. Trimming your trees at the wrong time can destroy a wildlife nest and injure or orphan baby wildlife.

Due to the global coronavirus pandemic, we are postponing our volunteer classes. We want you to be safe and one of the most effective ways to do that is to practice "social distancing" and limit in-person contact. Our classes put too many people in close contact.
We still plan on opening our baby bird nursery early in May and will need volunteers to supplement our staff to care for the baby birds. We are already receiving squirrels and more mammals will be on the way.
Please watch our Facebook page and our Paws Center blog for more information about rescheduled volunteer classes in the coming weeks.
If you would like more information about the pandemic, please read this information from the CDC website.
Thank you for wanting to make a difference for our wildlife and your understanding during this difficult time.
These birds have a wide range – from Alaska to Nicaragua. Anywhere you find trees and some open areas for foraging, you will likely find these birds. Click the image to learn more!
WE HAVE EXCITING NEWS!
TCWC and A-PAL, as paws partners, have taken first steps to provide a FUTURE SAFE HARBOR for animals in need – a place for them to heal and thrive again.
Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of the seller and the Marjorie Strohm estate, both groups jointly purchased an acre parcel on Trade Center Drive in Jackson. The acre is centrally located and adjacent to Jackson Creek Veterinary Clinic.
Plans to develop a facility there for small mammal and raptor care as well as for cat recovery are just beginning. As details unfold we will be thrilled to share them. For TCWC, this facility will provide wild animal indoor rehab and recovery, short term outdoor acclimation and then transport for release near where the animal was found.
We will be forever grateful to Marjorie Strohm and her daughter Mary Ann. Their love for animals will always be reflected in this project. Huge thanks also to Stan Lukowicz, Catherine Metzger, Tom Blackman, Evelyn Ryan, George Ryan, Kathleen Harmon, Pat Keene, Ciro Toma and Robin Rehart for their kind and gracious help to secure a home for wildlife care for years to come.
