Located near Alton, IL, TreeHouse Wildlife Center is a non-profit, dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of wildlife while promoting environmental awareness through education.

TreeHouse provides a community service to people in southwestern Illinois who encounter injured or orphaned wildlife by providing a legal and professional means of assisting them and the wildlife involved.

In addition, TreeHouse believes that for any wildlife rehabilitation program to be truly successful, it must be partnered with an interactive program of public edu...cation. The only way to really help our wildlife populations is to educate our human communities about the value of wildlife, the basic needs of wildlife, and man's impact on wildlife. By following this plan of education objectives we can further our cause by teaching people to have compassion, tolerance, and understanding for the creatures that we struggle to save.

TreeHouse does not receive government funding of any kind and operates with donations from the public, memberships, fundraisers, grants, and fees from outreach programs.

Our organization is operated by a dedicated staff of talented individuals. Two of our operational staff receive funding through a generous foundation grant for supervisory and administrative positions. All other positions are filled by volunteers. Volunteers help fill a variety of needs, from administering care and treatment of wildlife patients to building cages, fundraising, and transporting animals.
