What Wildlife Rehab Costs
Our total annual expenses typically total $175,000-$185,000.
Our biggest operating expense is FOOD. We spend about 1/3 of our budget on various types of formula, grains, hay, fish, mice, and worms in order to meet the specific dietary requirements of the animals in our care. Of these, the WORMS cost the most! We spend the rest on ANIMAL HOUSING, VETERINARY SUPPLIES, UTILITIES and STAFFING.
