AWR, Inc. is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife in Central Florida.
Greater than 90% of the animals that we rescue are injured due to the consequences of human neglect towards the wildlife and their habitat. These animals are hit by cars, suffer gunshot wounds, become entangled in fishing line or other trash, ingest plastic bags, and the over development of their habitat has produced injury causing obstructions such as powerlines and buildings.
Ahopha is a word taken from the Lakota Indian language that means “to treat with respect”. As the majority of animals that we rescue suffer as a result of neglect by humans vs natural causes, we feel obligated to give them a second chance at life.
Education is paramount at Ahopha Wildlife Rescue. We are committed to reaching out to the general public, adults as well as our youth, to foster an understanding of the importance of two of the greatest natural resources in Florida, the diverse and fascinating wildlife, as well as the environment we share with the animals.
