Selfies: Wildlife rehabilitation — a passion more than a profession

The Pauline S. Schneegas Wildlife Foundation was founded in 1984 and named after executive director Nanci Limbach’s grandmother. Funds left to Nanci after Schneegas’s death in 1991 were used to further expand the rehab facilities and to create the flight cage — giving birds the ability to practice flying and rebuild strength after injury and before being released. Nanci is licensed to treat every species except bats and striped skunks. Although spring is the busiest time of year with the arrival of new babies, the work is never ending, and money is the biggest issue. The foundation is not paid by the state to treat and rehabilitate the animals; it relies on grants and private donors. This is a passion more than a profession for Limbach, and she considers herself lucky to be able to do what she does. For more information on the facility and how you can donate, visit
