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.
