Your donations count

Wild Things, Inc. is a 501-c3 non-profit wildlife facility. The majority of our funding comes from providing wildlife programs in schools, churches, senior centers, Girl and Boy Scout troops, and others. Donations allow us to engage in special improvement projects which don't always fit into the daily budget.

Reptile Building and an Amphitheater

In the past donations have allowed us to build a state of the art Reptile Building, make improvements to individual animal habitats, given us technology to assist in performing animal rescue, and provide behavioral enrichment for primates, raccoons, bears and other animals. The donation of the S.W. Allen Wildlife Amphitheater has allowed us to bring groups to "Where the Wild Things Are" for a completely different experience than some of our other programs. Other items that have been generously donated include office equipment such as a laptop computer, Apple desktop computer which are invaluable in the desktop publishing, record keeping and bookkeeping that are required in running a wildlife facility.

Future Plans

Future plans include road improvements, bathroom and handicap access for the amphitheater, and facilities upgrades. Our primary facilities upgrade need is replacing the structures which currently house the nutrition area, bird room, and office with one large building to serve all these functions with an additional area for veterinary care. All of these projects require funds which are generally above and beyond what the current budget allows. Monetary donations as well as building supplies are always greatly appreciated.

Other ways to help include the donation of produce, meat and grains, vari-kennels in good condition, towels and blankets, and services such as printing, vehicle repair, etc.

Want to Volunteer?

We have many volunteers doing behind the scenes work like web-design, photography, and animal care. We appreciate all those that help in the never-ending work that goes into the care and housing of the amazing animals that we have the privilege of caring for.
