We are licensed by the California Department of Fish & Wildlife (used to be called Fish & Game) as wildlife rehabilitators. We have a perfect record and history. We are permitted to rehabilitate all small mammals including coyotes, bobcats, foxes, raccoons, opossums, all squirrels, skunks, small rodents and bats. We also can rehabilitate all non-protected birds. We have legal unreleasable educational animals. We were first approved for our license in 2003. Mary Cummins worked as a satellite for other rehabbers since 2001. We have never had a violation ever. We follow all guidelines of Fish & Wildlife. We were approved for an exhibit permit.
We are a legal non-profit organization recognized by the IRS since 2002. We have never had a problem with our status or any violations ever. We follow all rules and regulations. We've never been audited. Here is our legal organization on Guidestar where you can see our 990 tax returns.

Below are our annual reports from 2010 to 2015. This includes number of animals rescued, released, domestics adopted, animals spayed and neutered, events, new fans, new programs, future goals...
It is against the law for us to show wildlife being rehabilitated for release back to the wild to the public. We can only show our educational unreleasable animals to the public. We cannot give tours or let people view our facilities. This is why we show photos and videos. NO ONE except USDA and Fish & Wildlife inspectors have ever been to our facilities since 2006 when we move to a new facility. We don't give out our physical addresses.
President of Animal Advocates Mary Cummins has a perfect history and has passed many Department of Justice background checks to have her many professional licenses (real estate appraiser, real estate broker, notary...), work with abused children, have a gun permit and go to the police academy, humane academy to become a Humane Officer. Mary Cummins has passed the strictest of all background checks to work with many high level government agencies. Cummins does not even have a speeding or parking ticket on her record.
A mentally ill, obsessed lady has been stalking us for the last few years. She has been stating completely false things about our founders and organization. If anyone ever says we have ever had a problem with our permits or the law, that is false. We have a perfect record. We've had our USDA permit since 2003 with no violations ever. This stalker woman has gone so far as to threaten to harm us and the animals in our care. We are working with authorities to have this person incarcerated.
Please, do not post pleas for money, donations, items for sale, services for sale... for yourself or another organization on our page. We don't know which are scams or not and don't have the time to research them all. We don't want our friends or fans to get ripped off by a scam. Ads, pleas for money will be removed. Don't ask us for money. We are a small non-profit with a small budget. We spend all of our money helping animals. We help the public with native wildlife in Los Angeles, California. We can only give advice for anyone outside of California of the US. Thanks.
