These hospitals and organizations are usually setup to recruit other individuals and communities to support and help out in the protection and care for the threatened, injured and endangered wildlife, starting from one animal to a whole species, then return them eventually to their natural habitats.
The objectives of such organizations are protecting and enhancing the natural environment; providing education and information to the public; raising awareness of wildlife concerns and issues; undertaking biological research; researching, recommending and acting o protect threatened and endangered animal species.
These organizations usually do not accept federal monies and are often funded by donations, grants and memberships. They use these to conduct several programs that will benefit the animals.

There are numerous ways to provide assistance to these organizations to help them achieve the goal of helping out the sick and injured and orphaned animals.
