Animal Education Programs

DAWCWR, Inc. is primarily a domestic animal veterinary clinic and wildlife rescue located in Siren, WI. However, we consider it an honor to teach people about the animals that we love, and that means bringing the animals to you! Our animal programs are varied and tailored to fit the needs of your specific group. We believe that the education gained from these programs will help the domestic and wild animals in our community. As a 501©(3) non-profit charity that serves the people of Burnett and Polk County (and beyond), DAWCWR, Inc. provides these programs free of charge. Donations are gladly accepted so we can continue to offer these programs to any group that would enjoy our presentations. Take a look at the programs that we offer; we’d love to share our contagious love of the animals we care for!

Do you know what to do - or what NOT to do if you see an animal that appears to be injured or orphaned?  Learn more about some of our native wildlife and basic do's and don't's to help them out.  A little bit of knowledge can go a long way when you're trying to save an animal's life.  Meet several rescued creatures up close and personal and hear their stories.  "E.T." the eastern box turtle or "Copper" the fox snake are two of the possible creatures you may see.

Approximately 45 minutes.
