Caring for Young Cottontails

Some very young cottontails were brought to the rescue center. After weeks of bottle feeding and special very precise care, one has been released back into the wild with more to come.

Cutest Invader Evah!

In early July a very young Dove arrived at the rescue center. At such a young age, it is difficult to discern what type of dove it is. With time and growth, it became apparent the Dove was a “Ring Neck” which is not a native species but an invasive species. Non Native critters can negatively affect the well being of native species. We are not permitted to release non-native wildlife.

Fortunately, this invasive species dove has found a forever home.

Wildlife Presentation at Findlay Subaru!

Martin, Susan, Helen, Belle and Scout all took the shiny new Subaru back down to the Findlay Subaru of St. George for the presentation of a HUGE check from the Share the Love event.

Our Thanks to Findlay Subaru of St. George!

Findlay Subaru St. George is presenting the proceeds from their Subaru Share the Love promotion to the Southwest Wildlife (SWF) on Friday, April 23, 2021 at 11:00 am, and is inviting the community to attend. Findlay Subaru St. George is donating $12,231.91 to the SWF and its founder, Martin Tyner.

The Share the Love program allowed customers the option to donate a portion of their purchase to a selection of charities, or a “hometown charity” which was designated for 2020 as the Southwest Wildlife Foundation. Findlay Subaru St. George’s General Manager, Dave Gourley expressed his gratitude in being able to partner and support Mr. Tyner’s wildlife rescue and wildlife educational outreach programs. Gourley stated, “We’re so glad and proud to help Martin make a real difference in our community through rehabilitating over 150 wildlife each year.”

Contributing to the community has always been a major objective for Findlay Automotive, and they give back in many ways—from partnering with different charities including the SWF to providing the services of their event trailer free of charge to local businesses and an organization—giving back to the community is very important to Findlay Subaru. This is the seventh year that Findlay Subaru and the Southwest Wildlife Foundation have partnered for the Share the Love program. Findlay Subaru has helped the SWF to raise awareness of their mission and purpose through photo shoots, videos, creating print media campaigns, and helping maintain the foundation’s Subaru Forester.

Founded in September 1997, the Southwest Wildlife Foundation (SWF) is a 501(C)(3) non-profit public organization, to provide wildlife rehabilitation and to promote wildlife education. They are dedicated to wildlife rescue, wildlife and environmental education. This dedication to preserving our natural resources is one of the many reasons Findlay Subaru has chosen the Southwest Wildlife Foundation as a charity partner. With its focus on wildlife and environmental education, the SWF provides the community with approximately 100 programs, reaching over 30, 000 people annually.

Wild Eagle Chase

March 11, 2020

Susan and Martin went off on a Wild Eagle Hunt.

They got a phone call from Police Dispatch. The report was that a Golden Eagle had been spotted on the ground west of town. Concerned observers called police dispatch and they called Martin.

With directions about where the Golden Eagle had been seen, Susan and Martin headed out to check on things.

Susan kept her camera handy and filmed over twenty minutes of their search in the miserable, windy, cold and snowy conditions of their search, first a half mile off in one direction, then the other.

With no sign of a Golden Eagle, they headed back to the car.

Shortly after, they saw the Golden Eagle fly up and land on a power pole.

Martin’s guess was that the Golden Eagle had a big dinner and full crop when spotted on the ground. After a little while to digest the meal, it headed back up to the pole and was able to fly around fine.

We’re glad he’s okay!
