Spring the busiest time of year for wildlife shelter

SPRING is Shelly Burrowes’ busiest time of year, receiving many calls for help from locals to help with the displacement or injuries of birds and animals around the south-west region.

As operator of the Hamilton Wildlife Shelter for six years and licenced by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DEWLP), she has had to deal with a wide range of situations to get animals back on their feet or flying again.

Ms Burrowes compiled a rescue kit for the car, and should you need assistance Ms burrows can be contacted on 0409 187 625 and while the Wildlife Victoria number is 8400 7300
