A blessing!!!! So happy to have good people in this world to turn to when you think there is nowhere else to go. Maryjane is on top of it. She screens the situation at hand, but for all the right reasons. She has the animals best interest at heart. Again, so thankful places like this.

I spoke with the center's owner, Maryjane after contacting another wildlife rehabber closer to me, who referred me 2 her. There was a fawn I had observed earlier that day near our property. Everything you will find on the internet about this type of situation tells you that if the fawn is bedded down, 2 leave it alone, it's mother is close by & will return 2 get it. When I 1st observed the fawn that morning, it looked like it was bedded down. It's head & ears were up, it's eyes were open & it looked as though it were chewing it's cud. There was no sign it was in distress. I left it alone. When I checked on it later in the day, it was then apparent it was injured & in distress. When I spoke w/Maryjane, she was critical of me & how I handled the situation, asking why didn't I call her that morning when I 1st observed it? I explained that had I known then it was injured, I most certainly would have called, but there was nothing that led me to believe @ that time it was injured. I thought I was doing the right thing by leaving it alone. She basically grilled me on the phone, saying, "don't take this the wrong way, but why didn't you call me this morning? Maybe I could have helped you then, couldn't I get to a phone that morning, was I too busy to call, why didn't I call sooner? She wouldn't even let me answer until I interrupted her & told her that I would answer her if she would allow me the opportunity 2 explain. I couldn't believe how she was acting. She then told me there was nothing she could do & if I wanted, I could try 2 transport it an hour and a half to her myself. I had also called a neighbor who is a state trooper, & he ended up shooting the fawn to put it out of it's suffering when I called him for help. He said it appeared to have a compound fracture & it's hips were most likely shattered from the impact of a vehicle that apparently had hit it, & would not have been able 2 be saved. I was so upset by the situation as it was, but 2 then be grilled by Maryjane for not doing more was the worst. I couldn't sleep that night. I volunteer for a local pet rescue organization & you will not find a more caring or compassionate person when it comes 2 animals. I felt the way Maryjane treated me was very unfair & unprofessional. She made me feel like nothing I did was right. I realize she probably deals with jerks everyday, but I am not 1 of them. Perhaps she was having a bad day, but I was very disappointed in how she treated me when I was trying to do the right thing. She needs to remember that when people call her, they are reaching out for help, not criticism.

While this may not be considered a business where one can just go and get something for a price, although you can do that in the gift shop and online at the website, It is still a business that gives others a chance at a second life. Granted the life isn??t human but without this wonderful place a lot of wildlife would have never gotten the chance to live. To me it is one of the best places to call when you find an injured animal that might need help. MaryJane is very knowledgeable and will tell you the right thing to do.

My daughter has been a long time volunteer at this center. I've watched her learn and grow over the years, and I am very proud of the woman this center has helped her become. If you are someone who wants to help the environment, help animals, and work hard... consider Skye's Spirit Wildlife.

They provide an excellent service and will do anything to save the animal you find. They are very spiritual and passionate about what they do. They are very friendly. They need help with fundraising and growing their facility.

This family is a godsend to his creatures. I have taken baby squirrels and an injured ring neck snake to the center recently. I have taken other injured animals there in the past. Both Maryjane and Robert are WONDERFUL people. They are so warm and caring. Maryjane always takes the time to answer emails to let you know how the animals are doing, even with her hectic schedule. People such as them are beyond words. We need more people like them. If you are looking for a worthy cause to donate, please consider Skye's Spirit Wildlife. They give the animals a 2nd chance.

Dedicated to the welfare & rehabilitation of wildlife, Skye's Spirit is one of very few places left in Western PA who will take in & nurture sick & injured wildlife.

The center holds monthly food drives, as well as annual animal baby showers, Native American festival and has an on-site gift shop.

What better fit than Native Americans running a wildlife rehabilitation center? These people give and give of themselves, and treat injured and orphaned wildlife with all natural methods. Those that couldn't survive on their own if they were to be released into the wild are lovingly kept and used in their educational efforts.

They have a great gift shop on site with lots of Native American handmade crafts. It's worth it to stop by, see the animals, and shop the store.
