What We Do
At EAWS, our primary mission is to take in injured, mistreated, or otherwise unwanted animals, bring them back to good health, and ensure they have the best life possible after coming through our gate. We are a fully USDA licensed facility and are certified by The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission for wildlife rehabilitation.
EAWS fully supports the responsible ownership of all animals. Some animals, even after successful rehabilitation, are not fit for release. Sanctuaries like ours exist to ensure all animals live their lives to the fullest extent.
Animals are deeply impacted by humans every day. Our secondary mission is to educate the public, especially children, about the importance of responsible pet ownership and respecting the wildlife around them.
