Fenton Twp. wild animal shelter facing foreclosure, may be forced to shut doors for good

Posted: Updated:

(07/25/12) - A Fenton Township wild animal rescue might have to close their doors for good.

Wild Oat Animal Rescue is facing foreclosure and only has a few weeks to come up with more than $5,000. All their animals have been orphaned or injured and wouldn't survive without some human intervention. Right now they have more than 50 animals.

Michelle Allen and her husband pay for the rescue out of pocket, because the state does not compensate wildlife rehabilitators for their service.

Allen was hurt on the job and now she's unemployed. That means there's no way for them to pay for their land.

"It's possible the animals, if we don't have enough time, they would just become homeless, quite literally there's no plan B for these animals," said Angela Alexander-Roth, marketing director for the shelter.

They've already raised a few thousand dollars with help from the community, but they need $5,700 by mid-August.
