A Project of Wildlife Watch, Inc.
ROCK FOR ROCKY AND FRIENDS AT FOXWOOD
Rocky grew up in a cage his entire life. As part of a relay,
Wildlife Watch was able to get him to Foxwood. He’s now one
happy boy who will be released in time.

It’s important to see the many perils facing individual
wild animals in their daily existence. Some can be avoided by
personal steps that we can take - others need to be resolved through
or lobbying for new laws.
Your additional contributions to R.O.C.K. will be
shared between the wildlife rehabilitators, rehabilitation facilities,
and Wildlife Watch and will be put into a separate bank account.
Your support for this project will allow Wildlife Watch to continue
to produce and mail what will, soon, become a separate brochure
to educate the public about the “Do’s and Don’ts” of caring for
wild animals, who sadly have to depend on us for their survival.
In addition, your funding will aid those who work tirelessly at
their own expense to provide medical, training, and hospice care
to wild animals. Wildlife rehabilitators are licensed by state
game agencies, yet they are given no other support, and they are
not allowed to charge for their “services.” Wild animals cannot
pay for their own care and don’t carry medical insurance. There
are so few people who have dedicated their lives to this work that
very few individual animals are fortunate enough to be found and
helped. Sadly, animals often come to the attention of rehabbers
when they are found by people who either don’t want them near the
house or don’t know how to help them. When the DECs, DNRs or
police are called, they normally recommend killing, and most
cannot take time from their busy schedules.
This poor little fox was shot in the face and left to die because he was
eating someone’s garbage. He was cared for and sadly had to be
euthanized at Foxwood..
The Wildlife Watch R.O.C.K. Project will help to
fund the treatment, rehabilitation, or hospice care of wild animals.
If you know of a wildlife rehabilitator or a facility in your area
who might benefit from participating in our project, please put
them in touch with us, or put us in touch with them. : [email protected] or

area Wildlife Watch is waiting to activate our National Hotline

your help to activate it. We will be happy to carry the advertising

willing and able to handle the calls that will come your way.

On a sad but true note: Wildlife Watch will only be able to continue
this project if we receive funding.
Gratefully, for the wildlife! WILDLIFE WATCH, INC.
