Deserves a Chance
At the Squirrel Refuge in Vancouver, Washington, we work with an amazing team of volunteers and professionals to rehabilitate, release, and/or provide sanctuary for orphaned and injured wildlife. We specialize in the rescue of small mammals like squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, possums, and rabbits and rely on donations from animals lovers like you.
“The orphaned squirrel, Moses, was underweight and dehydrated. He just didn't seem to be thriving like his brothers. After a couple of months of care at the Squirrel Refuge though, he was healthy and ready for release! ”
