Each year, Nurture to Nature and Western Kentucky Raptor Center care for hundreds of animals after receiving phone calls from concerned citizens that have found an animal that needs help. Each animal receives exactly what it needs--proper food, appropriate living space, medical attention, etc.--but we can't do it without your help. Both Nurture to Nature and Western Kentucky Raptor Center are 501(c)3, non-profit organizations. All donations are tax-deductible.

You may make a financial contribution by donating using PayPal.
