Since starting in 1978, Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care has raised, rehabilitated and released over 15,000 wild animals in need — all out of the home of its founders, Tom and Cherly Millham. We have become the go-to facility in California for raising orphaned bear cubs and treating animals burned in wildfires.
Yet we are in critical need of an expanded facility. We have seen dramatic increases in the number and variety of wildlife needing our help as the result of human interactions. We need the increased space and capacity to keep up with this increasing demand.
Our new, expanded facility will give LTWC room to care for the injured and orphaned animals staying with us. Animals will no longer be shuffled around to make room when new animals are admitted. They will have dedicated enclosures that suit their needs. And most importantly of all, we will not have to turn away animals in need.
We hope you will agree that we have a responsibility to care for wildlife that has been negatively affected by humans. Please help LTWC continue its mission to raise, rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned wildlife.
