“I am elated to support Alligator & Wildlife Discovery Center this year,” says Author Ilene Lieber.  “I had such a wonderful experience when I visited the Center.  It’s such a special, unique place where you can really get up close with many unique animals, and the staff is amazing, incredibly knowledgeable and caring with all of the animals.  I truly learned a lot and had a very memorable experience, and I hope to enlighten and encourage many more people in the community to experience the Center through our partnership this year.”

The mission of the Alligator & Wildlife Discovery Center and Rescue is to provide humane, professional care for pet surrenders and orphaned native wildlife that cannot be safely returned to the wild.  The Center is home to over 250 animals including lizards, small mammals, amphibians, turtles and tortoises, fresh and saltwater marine life, alligators and more.   The Center’s focus is conservation and education to the public about the natural history, importance and ways to coexist with the rich diversity of wildlife in the world.

"We are honored to be selected and appreciate the support for our rescues and mission by Ilene, and of course… Zoey,” says Daniel Glenn, Director of Sales and Marketing for the Center.  “These funds are crucial in helping us provide food, veterinary care and improvements to our current enclosures so we can provide more natural environments for the rescues.”
