Who’s In Your Backyard?
“This is a new year. A new beginning. And things will change.” -Taylor Swift
We’re so excited to be stepping into a new year which proves to be an eventful one for Wild Again Rescue. We’re gaining new volunteers who see and feel the benefits of animal rescue, building wonderful relationships with supporters that realize the need for our services and very importantly, we’re preparing to build our newly designed wildlife infant care center called “The Healing House”.
As we enter 2018 with big hearts we hope that you will join us in our crusade to provide a safe environment for the humane care and treatment of injured, sick or orphaned wildlife, as well as protecting domestic animals from abuse and neglect. We’ll be bringing more education to you, sharing some of Wild Again’s most heartfelt stories and keeping you abreast on the Healing House construction. I encourage you to keep in touch and let us know what you’d like to hear/learn more about.
Wishing you a happy and healthy 2018!
Thanks for caring, because Every Life Has Value.

Easy winter backyard wildlife tips that even kids will enjoy!
We dodged the cold weather for a while but it was inevitable. Now most of us just want to stay tucked inside next to a cozy fire!
For as long as I can remember I’ve had difficulty enjoying indoor comfort during the days & nights that I know animals are struggling to stay alive with no respite from the cold. For this reason I’ve compiled a list of simple tasks almost anyone can do to help these innocent little creatures in your own backyard. Don’t forget to include your children in the process;
“The best way to learn is to do. The worst way to teach is to talk” (as quoted by Paul Halmos).
This first tip is an especially great “indoor recess” project for children at home or school. Gather pine cones, (the type that are fully opened are best). Spread peanut butter on the wings and then roll the pine cone in assorted types of wild bird seed. Tie a piece of biodegradable string around the core of the pine cone: hemp, jute or cotton is best. Then hang the pine cones on branches of varying heights in trees and bushes. Pine trees are particularly good as most of them are not deciduous and provide some protections from wind, rain and snow. The great part about these pine cone bird feeders is that they can be “reloaded” after the birds strip the food from them.

FROM THE HEART
A purrfect match was made last month for beautiful cat, “Sophie”. Having come from a feral environment, she was a challenge initially. Hating most other animals led many to believe she would be tough to place in a good home. Persistence paid off and she became the most loving cat who snuggled her way into Kathy and Amber’s heart and home!
What a win for all!
If you, or someone you know, is looking to adopt a cat, these 2 spayed females are in desperate need of a home.
“Pumpkin” (spayed female) is about 3 years old. She is playful and silly but loves to sit on your lap or even be carried.
“Daisy” (spayed female) is about 18 months old and a dainty snuggle bug.
For more information email: firstname.lastname@example.org or text 937-307-9820. Please help us find good homes for these two.
