Our babies need your help!! We are still open and taking in babies, we are essential workers. Helping babies that have become orphan or injured is our passion.
Due to the Covid-19 though we can not do the fundraising that we normal do to help with food and medical costs for all the little ones we take in. Our fundraisers are usually working at the Moda Center in Portland, OR , serving food and beer during Blazer games, and other events. We also work at Clark County Amphitheater, performing the same services during their concert season. These are our biggest fundraisers of the year, our volunteers work hard to raise money to keep our babies supported until their release. These fundraisers provide almost 90% of our operating budget.
We need to ask for donations so we can buy the essentials for our little ones to be healthy and strong. We rescue baby squirrels, possum, bunnies and other little ones that come our way. Please help today to feed our babies. Any amount would be appreciated. You can make your donation to our paypal acct at: [email protected]
Thank you so much and God Bless

A good excuse to go nuts!: Happy Squirrel Appreciation Day!
Baby season is just around the corner for us. Here it will be starting in approximately a month, which goes by very quickly. We are in need of donations for supplies (especially formula and meds). The Squirrel Refuge is a 501c3 wildlife refuge dedicated to helping the wildlife here in Clark County, Washington.
Rehabbers do not get paid by the state for what they do. Our operating money all comes from donations, fundraisers or out of our own pockets. To raise a squirrel from pinky age to release costs $150 (possibly more if there are injures).
If you would like to help us it would be so greatly appreciated. One way to help is by donating through our paypal link: https://tinyurl.com/22ya357h
as well as by simply sharing this post. Squirrel Refuge thanks you for your support!

“Pepper was brought to the Squirrel Refuge as an eyes-open baby with a broken leg. Her leg was treated and she was released back into the wild!”
We'd like to thank Henry's Healthy Pets and Fox Valley Nutrition for all the donations, discounts, and support they've given the Squirrel Refuge over the years. We wouldn't trust anyone else with our squirrel nutrition!
"When the squirrel totem scurries its way to you, it’s a message for you to have fun. Your life is filled with work and commitments, but you deserve some rest and relaxation, too.
The meaning of the squirrel reminds you that life doesn’t have to be so serious all the time. There’s a time for work and hustle, and there’s a time for fun and play."
Squirrel Refuge is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit that functions to serve the needs of abandoned, confiscated, orphaned, sick and injured rodents of the Sciuridae (squirrel) family. When resources allow, Squirrel Refuge also cares for other small mammals such as opossums and rabbits.
Our goal is to further the well-being of these amazing creatures and to provide a source of accurate information through public education to further care and concern for all wildlife - from the least to the greatest.
There actually is more than one place in the world who worships squirrels, but Longview, WA, is pretty high up there on the list. Every year they have a squirrel festival and they have 8 squirrel bridges!
