Mobilize to Save Wildlife Rescue Under Attack!

Mobilize to Save Wildlife Rescue Under Attack!

This alert is no longer active, but here for reference. Animals still need your help.

Animal Rescue Team, a wildlife rehabilitation center located in California's Santa Ynez Valley, saves hundreds of animals each year, but the center is under threat. The Santa Barbara County Planning and Development Department has plans to shut down the center and leave injured wild animals with nowhere to turn. Help save this important wildlife rescue and defend animal activist Julia Di Sieno!

On April 6th, Animal Rescue Team received a cease-and-desist order due to a noise complaint from neighbors who have harassed Julia for years. Given the choice to cease operations within ninety days or to file an appeal within ten days, Julie filed an appeal. Officials won’t specify the source of the “offensive noise” mentioned in the order. Julie needs to know the source to defend her case and make any changes. She says the noise is not from her recovering patients, but suspects it could be howling wild coyotes.

There is no one else providing wildlife rehabilitation services within miles of Animal Rescue Team (ART), which focuses on large mammal rescue, but accepts birds, including raptors, as well as reptiles. ART is licensed to rescue fawns, has special isolation facilities used to quarantine animals, and is the only animal rescue facility equipped with an animal ambulance on the Central Coast.

We know Julie’s work is critical to the survival of many animals who represent all kinds of local wildlife species, some of which are struggling to survive!

What will happen to the animals of Santa Ynez Valley without Animal Rescue Team? Don't let the unimaginable happen! Sign our alert to send a powerful message on behalf of fellow activist Julia Di Sieno, and all the animals who are counting on her in order to survive.
