Wes and Darcy Laraway are two Middleburgh School teachers who are well known nationwide for their animal rescue efforts. Formerly President of the Middleburgh Rotary Club and The New York State Llama and Alpaca Association, Wes is also a licensed Nuisiance Wildlife Control Officer with advanced training in handling Rabies Vector species.
The Laraway family rescues hundreds of domestic animals every year from all over the Northeast, providing them rehabilitation, new homes and sanctuary at their farm. Many animals are nursed back to health, and after careful screening, adopted into new families, with a new lease on life.
As if rescuing hundreds of "domesticated" animals per year is not enough, The Laraways are also both licensed NY State Wildlife Rehabilitators. They raised nine Whitetail Fawns this spring and by fall had successfully reintroduced them back into the wild.
The Laraways hope to expand their Wildlife Rescue facility this year to include other native wildlife species. They will be available to provide educational programs for any interested community groups upon request. They also have a rescue blog that is updated regularly for individuals who want to know about the daily lives of the animals they save. Please visit: northeastllamarescue.blogspot.com
