"Pretty Little Liars" Star Ian Harding Visits Rescued Animals at Fund for Animals Wildlife Center
"Pretty Little Liars" star Ian Harding visited The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center in Ramona, Calif., on Saturday, May 31, to learn about wild animal rescue and rehabilitation.
During his tour, Ian helped release a red-tailed hawk who was found struggling on the ground, and has been in rehabilitative care since early May. The bird’s ailments were a mystery, but after a few days of fluids, food and recuperation, he was able to be released into the center’s aviary to build wing strength in preparation for his return to the skies.
"They're doing amazing work here at The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center and making all the difference in the lives of these injured animals," Harding said during the visit. "It was such a thrill to help this incredible bird return to his natural life."
The FFAWC has a handful of permanent resident animals who were rescued from the exotic pet trade, but primarily rescues and cares for native local wildlife with the goal of returning them to the wild. The sanctuary and wildlife rehabilitation center is operated by The Fund for Animals, an affiliate of The Humane Society of the United States.
