From Idea to Reality: The Evolution of Wilderness Trail Wildlife Center #2

I am pleased to announce that I’ll be opening another location in early 2022! It will located in Pulaski County, Somerset Kentucky. It will mainly be my RVS (rabies vector species) clinic, including Foxes, Coyotes, Raccoons, & Skunks. This is something that I haven't had the opportunity to do before, given my county of residence and the rules I must abide by within my jurisdiction, so this is something I am very excited about! I finally get a chance to rescue and rehabilitate animals that I would normally have to turn down. THIS IS A BIG DEAL!

More Details about WTWC #2!

My friend, Rose, will be doing the daily running of the WTWC #2 Somerset Branch. This will benefit so many more animals and save so many more lives! I will update more as things progress. Thank you all so very much for every single thing you all have done and stood by me for. This wouldn’t have been possible without your help. I have to get a few things to get Somerset going and stocked. Rose already has some things stocked, but we do need some more. Check out the Facebook page HERE to learn more!

 
  • In 2019, founder Tonya Poindexter created the 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization "Wilderness Trail Wildlife Center" to connect her love for animals with a certified education on how to properly care for them.

  • Tonya is proudly licensed with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, the IWRC, and the USDA!

  • Her passion has led to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release over 500 animals!

  • In February 2020, she hosted an educational course at the Laurel County Public Library called "Wild About Wildlife."

  • She was featured on WTVQ "The Lee and Haley Show" discussing WTWC, accompanied by a rescue opossum, Sarah (aka "Wild Opossum").

  • She continues to care for her "patients" daily and gets newly rescued wildlife in weekly. 

All of your donations to WTWC are tax deductible!

Wildlife Educational Events

Wilderness Trail Wildlife travels to educational facilities with a few non-release rescue animals to educate about the wildlife, debunk myths, and explain how you can do your part to help out!
