More than 98 percent of the animals treated at the hospital are admitted due to adverse contact with human activity. Animals are brought in by the public and the county animal service agency. All services provided by the wildlife hospital are free of charge, although donations are gratefully accepted. Along with treating animals, Lindsay Wildlife Experience educates the public to prevent similar problems in the future.
The hospital’s goal is to provide the best medical and husbandry care to regional wild animals in need. Care takes place on-site and at the homes of trained volunteers. Approximately 350 volunteers donate 60,000 hours of service in the hospital each year.
