Now until December 31, 2013, RWS is taking the Global Giving Challenge! If we raise $5,000 from at least 40 individual contributors, we will become a permanent part of Global Giving – a worldwide network of non-profits doing work on an amazing range of good and important causes.

Since 2010, we have been working in earnest to locate and purchase just the right spot for our new digs, which we found on Wheeler’s Cove, a little over a mile to the Rockfish River. We now have the driveway graded and graveled – a HUGE leap forward, and this fall we are preparing the site for the building. (See drawings and floor plans here.)
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!
Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to:
- Rescue and rehabilitate injured and orphaned native wildlife in Central Virginia and release them back into the wild;
- Inform our fellow citizens about what to do when they find an injured or orphaned wild animal, and who to contact for help with the animal; and,
- Educate the citizens of Central Virginia about the habitats and needs of native wildlife.
