TAKE ACTION!_ Wildlife Collection Event

Help Those Who Help Animals March 1-31!

Ijams receives numerous calls every year about sick, injured, or orphaned animals in this region, and wildlife rehabilitators come to the rescue! 

Wildlife rehabilitators open their homes to care for birds, mammals, reptiles, and more. Their work helps baby and injured creatures heal, grow, and hopefully be released back into the wild. It's a 24/7 job to care for these critters, and most rehabbers rely on donations to do this important work.


You can help! Throughout March, you can get items from the following Wish List and bring them to Ijams. Every item collected will be donated directly to rehabbers to help them care for the wildlife they take in. It's a wonderful way to thank them for caring for all creatures, great and small!
