Our 4th annual silent art auction on March 29 was a smashing success!  Thanks to everyone who came to browse and bid, to all the artists who donated work, the local shops that contributed items for bid, our very generous sponsors, and of course our stalwart volunteers. Check out some pictures at this link … and see you next year!  More >> line

We’re growing!  After almost 10 years at our “temporary” site in Nelson County, we’re excited to be well under-construction on our new, permanent rehab facility. And now comes the next phase — raising the funds to build our new wildlife sanctuary.  We are launching our Taking Flight Fundraising Campaign to raise $550,000. It’s a tall order, but we can do it – with your support.  We invite you to help us meet this challenge! line
