From 2002 until 2017, Sweet Binks operated as a state licensed shelter for abandoned and neglected domestic rabbits. It was very successful with rescue and placement of over 3000 rabbits. In 2017, we turned our mission, focus and training to wildlife rehabilitation for injured or orphaned wildlife in northern Rhode Island. We still keep a sheltering license for domestic rabbits. Sweet Binks is state permitted for most all wildlife including fawns, rabies vector species such as skunks and groundhogs. We have our USFW Migratory Bird permit for the rehabilitation of migratory birds as well.
We hope to have your support helping us care for some of our greatest treasures in Rhode Island. YOU make it possible and we hope to share our many successes with you.
