The Allen Family

About Us

A family's passion shared with others

The Allen Family can be seen on Bandit Patrol on Nat Geo WILD along with other wildlife rehabilitators in Kentucky. Season 3 is airing on Saturday nights at 9/8c through May 27, 2017. Enjoy the video clips below and click here for more videos, photos, and episode information.

Nurture to Nature Wildlife Rehabilitation Center began with our family and the passion we share

to help orphaned and injured wildlife. As a family, we are the caregivers to hundreds of wild animals in need each year. Our passion to help continues to grow as does the need to help. This need allowed us to join hand in hand with Western Kentucky Raptor Center to help Kentucky-native birds of prey. What a great experience we share as a family. Together we care for these animals who are in need. In our care, each animal receives the proper food and feeding schedule, comfortable and clean living space, and medical attention.
