Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I can’t make it to the Open House, but I want to help … what can I do?

A: Make an online donation. Visit the Center at and click the “Donate” button in the upper right corner. Click the option “make a general gift.” When you “check out” you’ll have the opportunity to include a note. Let them know that you’re supporting the “Peaceful Hands” project. If you do, you’ll receive a special little thank you surprise from me!

And, thank you to those who have already donated!

Q: What if I can’t come to the Yoga Class?

A: Just come to the Open House!

Q: I’m not a student at Peaceful Hands (or I haven’t been around for awhile), can I come anyway?

A: Would you like to help the Wildlife Center? If your answer is “yes” then you’re definitely “family” and we would love for you to join us. Plus, be sure to ask about Yoga classes … maybe we have a class for you!

Q: Can children come? Can I bring a friend?

A: The Yoga class might not be appropriate for children with no prior Yoga experience, but the Open House certainly is, especially if they would like to get an up-close look at some of the Center’s wild animals and learn more about them from Center staff.  And, yes, please do bring a friend!

Q: What’s the cost?

A: A gift for the Wildlife Center. Write a check to the Wildlife Center of Virginia … or choose some always-needed supplies from this list:

Paper Towels ** Tissues (no lotion) ** Glad/Hefty Trash Bags (30 gallon & yard sized) ** Ziplock Bags ** Safety Glasses/Goggles ** Mixed Nuts (unsalted, raw, no peanuts) ** Canned & Dry Dog or Cat Food (any size, any brand) ** Tuna Fish in cans ** Wild Bird Seed ** Basic office supplies: 20 lb. white paper, pens, padded mailing envelopes, dry erase markers.

The Center has treated more than 3,000 wild animals this year … and are currently rebuilding from the destructive ice storm on November 15.  They need our help more than ever. Please be generous.

Q: Will there be cheesecake?

A: Yes! Dr. Beier’s awesome cheesecake will be there!  And, there will be plenty of other sweet and savory treats, hot cider, and other little surprises.

Q: Do you have a video of the Center’s Bufflehead duck from Louisa County swimming?

A: Why yes I do.


This patient came to the Center in mid-November when she was found by the side of the road, unable to swim or fly. As you can see, the Center’s care is working … she’s improving daily and is scheduled for release in late December.
