Mississippi Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc.

Mississippi Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc. was formed in 1995 to meet the increasing need for wildlife assistance. Each year, hundreds of injured and orphaned wild birds and mammals are received by MWR, Inc. licensed rehabilitators. The techniques used to care for theses animals maximize their chances for survival when they are released to their natural habitat. The Director, Valery Smith, has over thirty years' experience in wildlife rehabilitation.

Wildlife rehabilitation is the care of the injured or orphaned animals with the specific goal of returning them to their native habitat. This involves emergency care, long-term rehabilitation and physical/mental conditioning for release back to the wild. It is a humane and rewarding endeavor which benefits both wildlife and people. By caring for individual animals, volunteers at MWR are gathering information that is relevant to entire species which gives all of us a better understanding of how these wonderful creatures relate to our world.

MWR is State and Federally licensed by the MS. Dept. of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks (MDWFP) and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS).
