How to Help

If you would like to assist with fundraising, our hotline, public education, or wildlife rehabilitation, we encourage you to join us at one of our monthly meetings. We welcome visitors and new members! We have a number of different ways that you can help NCWC help wildlife.

We meet on the third Tuesday of every month from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Landmark Motor Inn at 1418 Route 9 in South Glens Falls, New York, off of Exit 17 North.  During the winter months some meetings are done online via ZOOM. Contact the hotline to enquire if a monthly meeting will be in-person or via Zoom. (There is no monthly meeting in July/August/December.)

These are the average costs to rehab certain animals –

Cottontails: $32. Our most difficult to rehab, they are very sensitive to environmental stresses
Opossums: $41. Young require a very special diet containing many ingredients
Squirrels: $50. Our most common patient, most come after storms in the early spring or late summer.
Songbirds: $56. Birds must be fed every 20 minutes from dawn to dusk. Many have fallen from the nest or are injured by cats.
Raccoons: $86. Babies take all summer to grow, drink formula for up to 3 months, and juveniles need a high amount of food to fatten up for the upcoming winter.
Fawns: $312. Our most expensive patient due to their size and the time it takes them to mature.
