The founder of Back to the Wild Rescue and Rehab is Mary Martin and her partner, Matthew Wilkes we have been licensed in the State of Maryland for approximately 20 years. We hold current Maryland Master Rehabilitator, Maryland Rabies Vector Species (RVS) Rehabilitator and Federal Migratory Bird Rehabilitator permits.
Back to the Wild Rescue and Rehab sets broken bones, treats illnesses, and provides food and shelter for birds and mammals that have been injured or have been orphaned and are too young to care for themselves.
The goal is to return these creatures to their natural environment as quickly as possible, able to fend for themselves. Every effort is made to avoid interfering with the development of those natural characteristics that each wild creature requires to survive in the wild. Annually more than 200 birds and mammals find aid and shelter at the doors of the Back to the Wild Rescue and Rehab.
