ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A group of volunteer wildlife experts, the Georgia Wildlife Rescue Association, is no longer accepting supplies to help animals affected by the gulf oil spill.

 

 

They say they got overwhelming support.

 

Two storage units are already filled with supplies, and volunteers haven't yet picked up all the donations from the drop-off locations.

Members of The Georgia Wildlife Rescue Association were set to go to the Alabama or Florida coast to rescue and rehabilitate animals, but the oil hasn't reached those areas.

The group was formed by former Reed Bingham State Park Ranger Chet Powell and others after the leak and has grown into a statewide network of volunteers with more than 400 members.

The group continues to undergo training and could still be sent to the coast.

You can keep up with the group on Facebook.
