Hello Rhonda and you are most welcome here at WAA.

You are doing a wonderful job help animals in need and releasing them back into the wild. Some sound quite challenging such as the skunk and raccoons. How did you know how to work with them or was is learning as you go. I dont think I would have the confidence to do that.

Animals are such healers in the hardest of time, you have seen that. Group Hug

It may take a while to go through the forum, if there is anything you can suggest to add etc please let us know, we try and cater for everyone and cover as much animal topics as possible.

We on WAA love to share there animals photos so if you would like to add some the instructions are in the Membership and Information section on the front page or as any of the Admin team and will can talk you through it.

It great to have you on Board!

Hello Rhonda and welcome to WAA.

WOW What an amazing array of animals you have had over the years, how wonderful that some have been able to be released back to the wild, you have done such a magnificent job raising them all.

We just have two dogs, one rescue retired greyhound, Penny, and one Rhodesian Ridgeback, Tamu. They are both gorgeous.

I love all wildlife but have a particular passion for Africa. Having said that I'm also keen on what the UK has to offer, which is pretty amazing and especially our birds.

Enjoy looking round the site, and look forward to you joining in. If you need any help just ask, we are all here to help.

Hi Rhonda :newbies: welcome to the Forum

Fantastic amount of animals you have there Cool You are obviously are real animal lover, well done on all your rescues cheers

You've come to the right place for fellow animal enthusiasts. Between us all on here we have a wide knowledge and love for all things great and small, furry and feathered.

My passion in life is horses (especially racehorses) and having been 4 times, the Masai Mara in Kenya - it's just the most wonderful place ever to see lions, leopard and cheetah Cool

Hope to see you involved in some threads soon, there's plenty on here for everyone.

Hi Rhonda a great BIG WELCOME TO WAA
What a fantastic thing you have done looking after, and releasing all those different species of animals. That shows how much of a true animal lover you are, and as you say about Gypsylei, animals know this, and return that love when you need it most.
I'm sure you have loads of stories about the animals that you've cared for, and I'm sure we would all love to hear about them.
Great to have you with us, and as theothers have said, if you need any help on where to post things or find anything please just shout


If I can make somebody smile, my day has been worthwhile

Welcome to WAA

We're a lovely bunch of people on here, I don't have any animals myself at the moment due to living in rented accommodation but I have my bird feeder up and love watching them visiting when I'm at home
