A nonprofit rescuing sick or injured wild animals, rehabilitating them at their facility and returning them to the wild.
Atlanta Wild Animal Rescue Effort
AWARE, or the Atlanta Wild Animal Rescue Effort, has been operating at the base of Arabia Mountain since 2006. The nonprofit rescues sick or injured wild animals, rehabilitates them at their facility and returns them to the wild. Many of those that can’t be released stay at AWARE and become ambassador animals, helping the volunteers to teach visitors and school groups how to protect and respect wildlife.
1,600 Animals Annually
The facility took in more than 1600 animals in 2011 and fielded approximately 10,000 phone calls about wildlife.
The Atlanta Wild Animal Rescue Effort is open to the public for tours and programs every Saturday and Sunday at 1pm. AWARE can also come to you! Find out more about their outreach programs.
