  1. I wanted to thank everybody at the Wildlife Center of Venice for a very quick response to the successful “catch” of a Cormorant that was stuck in my backyard since last evening (Tuesday, May 22). Peg was definitely going to rescue this bird no matter what it took to do it. And, I happily assisted (more or less stood by and did as she directed) with this great endeavor. Peg ran into a few roadblocks as the bird would just jump in the pool when it felt threatened. But, a few fish around the edge brought the bird out of the water just long enough for her to catch it in her net. I am donating a wee bit of money to help assist in your next great rescue. Although it’s not a lot, I couldn’t allow this to happen without some type of recognition. Thank you again!!!! You are a wonderful group of people.

  2. I am making this donation to thank The Wildlife Center of Venice and its volunteers! This week my 2 dogs found an injured opossum in my backyard. I called the wildlife center and was told that they would send someone out. A short time later, a couple ladies came out to assess the situation. They did not hesitate to grab a carrier from their car and persuade the opossum into it. The compassion that they showed toward the injured animal was astonishing. What a wonderful organization!

  3. I would like to say Thank you to Kelly and Mike for the immediate action taken to help rescue a black and white rabbit I have been keeping an eye on for several months. We believed he was lost from a family some time ago and manage to take care of itself for a long time. But, it came to a point where he was no longer safe in the habitat he made for himself and we felt his life was in danger. I call the Wildlife Center of Venice and spoke with Mike who then connected me with Kelly. She came out immediately, found the rabbit and took him to a safer place. Thank you all for your help. I would have lost sleep if anything happened to our furry friend.
