Reno, NV (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Wildlife rehabilitators with the Wild Animal Infirmary for Nevada met with community members to spread the word about their wildlife recovery efforts. Laurie Spencer and Suzette Feilen volunteer for the Wild Animal Infirmary for Nevada (WAIF) and their volunteer work is like a full time job.
Laurie and Suzette take in birds and animals that are injured, they nurse them back to health and then release them into the wild.
Though they are volunteers for WAIF, Laurie and Suzette are medically trained and their goal today was to educate the public about their services.
Suzette says we may not realize it, but humans can actually harm wildlife by trying to help if we don't understand the specie and its habits.
If you find an injured bird or animal you are encouraged to take them to Klaich Animal Hospital at 1990 South Virginia Street.
Laurie and Suzette make sure to stop by the animal hospital every evening to pick up any bird or animal that needs their care.
WAIF is a non profit organization that relies solely on donations.
