How you can work with Friends of Wildlife

Wildlife Rehabilitator Training

Friends of Wildlife holds a basic wildlife rehabilitation training workshop once a year in the early spring. PLEASE GO TO OUR EVENT CALENDAR FOR DETAILS AND SIGN UP. All new volunteers must complete the basic training workshop and species care sessions before becoming eligible to rehabilitate wildlife as Friends of Wildlife rehabilitators. Current volunteer rehabilitators must fulfill continuing education requirements in order to maintain their active status.

Volunteer Opportunities

Friends of Wildlife needs non-rehabilitator volunteers too! We might be able to use your help in building cages or taking phone calls or distributing the newsletter or improving this Web site! If you are willing to share your time and talents, then please email us at friendsofwildlifeMI@gmail.com.

Open your Land to Wildlife

Friends of Wildlife rehabilitators work hard to prepare the animals in their care for release back into the wild. We may only release animals on private property and with the permission of the landowner. Wild spaces are growing smaller. Much of the undeveloped private land where we formerly were allowed to release animals has been sold for development or to new owners who are unsympathetic to our cause. If you own land in Michigan (in Washtenaw County or the surrounding counties) and are willing to allow us to release rehabilitated wildlife on it, please let us know by emailing us at friendsofwildlifeMI@gmail.com.

Donations are Welcome!

Friends of Wildlife can always use money donations for purchasing formulas and medications. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. If you include your name and address with your donation, then we will add your name to our mailing list and you will receive our biannual newsletter. Please mail donations to Friends of Wildlife, PO Box 1505, Ann Arbor, MI 48106.
