Our Wild Neighbors is dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned wildlife, and educate the community to live in balance with our environment.
We were formed by volunteer licensed wildlife rehabilitators and wildlife enthusiasts. We are a nonprofit organization that cares for orphaned and injured wildlife in Hillsborough, NC and the surrounding counties. Working with the public we accept animals on a regular basis. OWN is staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers. We are supported solely through donations from the public. We receive no city, county, state or federal funding. Donations are optional when dropping of animals.
