Located just outside of Durand, Hoo Haven is a wildlife rehabilitation facility that takes all kinds of wildlife that needs help getting back on their “feet.”

Famous for working with birds of prey, the facility also helps critters that slither, crawl or walk. From skunks to corn snakes and bunny rabbits to wild coyotes, Karen Herklodtz, director of Hoo Haven, won’t turn any animals away from being helped.

As with other rehabilitation facilities, Hoo Haven depends greatly on the kindness of the community with monetary donations, food donations and of course volunteers. If you are interested in learning more about their traveling education program, would like to volunteer or have a few extra household items to donate, check out their website here.
