SPEAKER:Bobby & Cathy Horvath

TOPIC:Wildlife in Need of Rescue & Rehabilitation

At our next meeting, Bobby & Cathy Horvath from Wildlife In Need of Rescue &

Rehabilitation (WINORR) will visit us again to demonstrate what it takes to be a

wildlife rehabilitator. They will walk around the room with some of the animals

they have rescued that were deemed unreleasable and are used as educational

ambassadors. These could include Eurasian Eagle-Owl “Augie‚” American Kestrel

“Gryphon,” several other birds, an Arctic fox, an opossum, and a porcupine. Join

us to meet these creatures up close and hear their amazing stories!

WINORR (which is on Facebook) is a nonprofit volunteer organization serving New

York City, Nassau County, and western Suffolk County. Bobby and Cathy have

federal and state licenses to provide professional care for sick, injured, and

orphaned wildlife. They receive no funds from federal, state, or county

agencies, and are totally dependent on donations, grants, and fundraisers to pay

for their daily operation. They rescue and care for wild animals received

through the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, local police, animal

hospitals, humane societies, animal control, and the general public.

A handful of local veterinarians generously donate their time and expertise to

WINORR. The Horvaths are part of a small network of volunteer rehabilitators who

offer a sanctuary or find permanent placement for unreleasable wildlife that are

unable to survive in the wild and otherwise would face euthanasia.
