VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –More than 1,300 animals have been rescued from the gulf coast.

Members of the Georgia Wildlife Rescue Association are stretched from Florida to Louisiana working to save sea turtles, birds, and mammals.

Chet Powell is part of that rescue and has been delivering supplies to the coast. St. John's Catholic Church in Valdosta donated more than $500 dollars to rescuing wildlife.

Powell says monetary donations are needed because these injured animals simply can't wait for BP claims to be processed.

"It takes anywhere from three weeks to over a month before you can get results and some of the items that we need to keep these animals alive and rescue can't wait three weeks or a month," said Chet Powell of the Georgia Wildlife Rescue Association.

The Humane Society of Valdosta and Lowndes County is a drop off site for donations at 307 East Jane Street or mail them to P.O. Box 5323 Valdosta, GA 31602.
