About 2nd Hand Ranch & Rescue
2nd Hand Ranch & Rescue is a small independent wildlife rehab home. Nancy has been rescuing wildlife since she lived in Minnesota as a child and her mom saved orphaned squirrels, injured birds and lost kittens. We are a licensed Wildlife Rehabilitation Center under the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and work closely with many other rehabbers as well our our local veterinarians, Conservation Police and DNR.
All wildlife is given lots of TLC, and raised with the goal to release back into the wild where it is most happy.
The long-term goal for 2nd Hand Ranch & Rescue is to gain non-profit status and grow to have an education area, for children of all ages to visit and see how wonderful our Illinois Wildlife truly is.
Another part of 2nd Hand Ranch & Rescue is Companion Animal Rescue. Our passion is house rabbits saved from Death Row as well as Senior Dogs that also end up on Death Row, not a happy picture. We try with all our heart to save as many as we can and we could use your help. Join us in our 2nd Hand Dog project with 'Forever Fostering'.
