To support an increasing influx of orphaned and injured wildlife, we are in the process of expanding our center and continuing to building new enclosures. Below are several of the main projects we are focusing our attention on!

Main Operations Building

Since 2015, our annual wildlife intakes have been growing in numbers. This past year alone, we have doubled our intake of animals from previous years, bringing us close to 600 patients! We are in dire need of new space that will include an exam room, intake area, isolation units, larger overwinter space, and more!  This is urgently needed to provide more quality care, space, sanitation, and to separate the center from living quarters.  With this new space, we can expand to help even more sick, injured, or orphaned wildlife.

As with most smaller facilities, (but growing fast!), we operate out of the founder’s home.  A new building would limit the possible spread of zoonotic diseases and further allow SRWC to separate between the non-profit and living quarters.

New multi enclosures and existing enclosure expansions

At eight outdoor enclosures, we have four that are dedicated strictly to raccoons, and the remaining four are multi enclosures that can house anything but raccoons.  The state of Maine has updated the size requirements for enclosures per species.  As a result, we need to modify three of our raccoon enclosures within the year and due to the size variance of mammal species we take in, there is a need three new multi enclosures this year.  Each enclosure cost varies but the average cost starts at $900.00.  With the influx of patients every year, this is an urgent issue.
