DescriptionThor came to Paws Animal Wildlife Sanctuary in 2007 as an orphaned white tail fawn along with his twin brother. This photograph shows Thor the January after his release in the woods with several others that were raised and released with him. Look carefully in the background of the photo to see two of them. Thor’s button antlers are just visible as he leans forward to take a drink just where the water slips over the rocks. Thor went on to become the lead buck of his herd. http://www.paws-sc.com
Paws Animal Wildlife Sanctuary Inc., South Carolina Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement Paws Animal Wildlife Sanctuary, Inc is a state and federally licensed, non-profit organization focusing on wildlife education, rescue and rehabilitation based out of South Carolina.
Education: While zoos provide an educational experience that teaches about many species of animals throughout the world, one rarely finds information there regarding the animals that live in our own back yard Our goal is to teach peaceful coexistence with our wild neighbors while calmly explaining the need for safety.
Rescue: While there are hundreds of species of animals available for people to have as pets, it is often difficult to find a shelter that will handle exotics or wild animals. While our facilities are not large enough to accommodate unwanted pets, we have helped connect homeless wild and exotic animals with people and facilities who want them. We have even adopted several of them ourselves.
Rehabilitation: We have nearly 20 years of licensed experience rehabilitating wildlife and have resources available to assist with any new species that may come to us. We rehabilitate orphaned, sick and injured wildlife and return them to their native habitat, where they belong.
Our website contains many photographs of our permanent animals as well as our rehab animals. We now offer videos of our recent releases on our YouTube page! http://www.paws-sc.com http://www.youtube.com/pawssc
it is our hope that by creating and selling photographs of our work, we can create revenue that will allow us to continue to do our important work. All proceeds from these sales go directly into our non-profit organization.
