SWR asks: ‘Are you ready to rehab?’

Sierra Wildlife Rescue will hold its first class of the new year, “Are You Ready to Rehab?,” from 7 to 9 p.m. on Jan. 13 at the SWR Wildlife Center, 3030 Newtown Road, Placerville.

The class is designed to acquaint those who may be interested in rehabbing orphaned and injured wild animals with basic requirements and procedures for a variety of species. New rehabbers are always needed and welcome, and no prior experience is necessary; all you need is a love for animals and a desire to care for them until they can be returned to the wild. Caring for wild animals and restoring them to their natural environment is more enjoyable and fulfilling than you can imagine.

If you decide to rehab you will be trained through a separate class on the species of your choice, and also receive hands-on training with an experienced rehabber, who will mentor you as long as you require it; all basic supplies and equipment are provided free through SWR. Additional, more advanced classes are also available for your continuing education as a wildlife rehabber, and all classes are free to SWR members.

SWR has been licensed by the California Department of Fish and Game since 1992, and is totally non-profit, all-volunteer and completely membership and donation-funded.  In addition to rehabbing, SWR’s mission includes educating and informing the general public about wildlife and how to  live compatibly with our wild neighbors.

Parking is limited. Call Barbara Barker in advance at (530) 621-2650 to sign up for the class.
