Our Wishlist

If you are in the Poconos region and have any of the following items around, or would be willing to purchase them for us, we can always use them!  Just make sure you call ahead so that we know you are coming and what you are bringing.

If you plan to come by, please know that our rehabilitation efforts require that the animals have minimal human contact and therefore we do not allow visitors to tour the facility.

Specialty Formula

baby squirrelOne of the largest needs we have each year is formula.

The baby mammals we care for include fawns, bear cubs, rabbits, raccoons, opossums, foxes and squirrels. Each of those creatures requires a special formula! A company called Chris’s Squirrels and More sells what we need and is willing to help you buy formula as a gift for Pocono Wildlife!

The formulas we need most are Fox Valley brand: 32/40 (for bunnies and squirrels) , 33/30 (for fawns), and 30/50 (for bear cubs). We go through a dozen 20 lb tubs each year!! You can order formula on their website or call them at (877) 717-7748.
