Animals In Distress Association, Inc. (AIDA) is a nonprofit  volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and successful release of injured, displaced and orphaned wildlife. Founded in 1987 by a group of individuals who recognized the need for organized wildlife rehabilitation in the state of Idaho, AIDA consists of state and federally licensed rehabilitators and those volunteers who assist then in their efforts. AIDA is funded entirely by annual membership donations, contributions and fundraising events, and receives no state or federal funding. As our population grows, so does the impact on local wildlife with loss of habitat, human interference, pollution, injuries by domestic pets, hunting, trapping, automobile mishaps, poisoning, and acts of cruelty. In each instance, AIDA seeks to find a responsible and humane solution for both wildlife and the general public
