If you know of a wild animal that is injured, stranded, or otherwise in need of help, call Blue Ridge Wildlife at (540) 837-9000. Do not attempt to perform a rescue operation on your own. Wild animals can be unpredictable — especially when they are injured or trapped.
Volunteers are always welcome at the shelter. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. Help is needed walking dogs, socializing felines, working as a greeter on Saturdays and during special events. For more information, telephone Holly at (540) 667-9192.
