We need your help to pay for veterinary treatment for sick and injured wildlife
GROW Wildlife, Inc. is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that was founded in December 2003 and now has two segments: The GROW Wildlife Fund and The GROW Wildlife Hospital of Georgia Project.
Our mission is to encourage wildlife conservation by promoting and providing professional veterinary care, education, and humane treatment of wildlife injured or disadvantaged by human activity.
Provide professional veterinary care to injured or disadvantaged wildlife as a result of human activity staffed by American College of Zoological Medicine (ACZM) residents and specialists; provide training opportunities for ACZM residents on a zoological specialist track and veterinary students in the care of wildlife; document and record the reasons for wildlife injuries and sickness; determine the prevalence of specific transmissible diseases in wildlife patients; evaluate responses to specific medical and surgical treatments; improve the approach to wildlife medicine (clinical research); and raise awareness of the negative impacts of urban sprawl which significantly impact wildlife populations due to injury and other human activities.
The GROW Wildlife Fund was established in late 2013 to help accomplish these mission and objectives by supporting native wildlife veterinary treatment and zoonotic disease research at participating university hospitals.
Currently, the GROW Wildlife Fund helps pay for veterinary care for sick and injured Georgia native wildlife patients at the new University of Georgia Veterinary Teaching Hospital. We will continue to fund clinical wildlife service programs until we raise the necessary funds to build a dedicated wildlife veterinary hospital, the GROW Wildlife Hospital of Georgia Project. We remain committed to advancing native wildlife medicine and native wildlife disease research.
