A time of gratitude and community

Dear Friends,

As the new year approaches, we want to thank you for your support, helping us, help critters.

Construction of Enoch Wildlife Rescue’s new eagle flight chamber, fifteen additional chambers and our wildlife care clinic, office and reception area, has been keeping us busy and also thrilled with the progress.

Bob Padilla, owner of Cornerstone Development LLC, is our general contractor for this project. He has worked with us on this project since early in 2023, reviewing our eagle flight chamber plans, visiting our home and current facilities, reading our book, Healer of Angels, and spending lots of time with Martin, to understand exactly the type of facility that Martin has been dreaming about for so many years.

Bob’s love and passion for animals and the wildlife we care for, as well as his understanding of how important this facility is for the future of wildlife rescue in Utah, has brought us beyond just building the eagle flight chamber. He has taken the burden off us and guided us through all the steps to complete the plans, including licensing and permits for this entire project.

Martin is making good progress with physical therapy and he is following his doctors’ instructions to take better care of his heart and arteries after his recent angioplasty where he received a 40 mm stent to open up a major blockage to his left anterior descending artery.

Due to Susan’s busy workload this year at Tyner’s Grooming, as well as helping to care for critters and developing the new facilities, and her worries and stress over Martin’s health, she decided not to produce the 2024 Wildlife Calendar. This will relieve some of Susan’s stress. We are so sorry we will not have any 2024 calendars.

With our facilities opening in January 2024, we plan to train many more volunteers, some interns and a few part time job positions. This will give us the opportunity to meet and train some potential future wildlife rehabilitators and educators, which will help take some of the burden off of Martin and Susan, allowing them to assist more with training and overseeing of future development.

We can only include a few photos with this letter, but for more updates on the construction and development of the Enoch Wildlife Rescue facilities and updates on Martin’s health, please visit:

November 14th Livestream Meeting

We wish you the best in the coming year and hope many of you will be able to come to visit us and see our new facility at our grand opening and open house in April 2024.

Martin & Susan Tyner

VLOGMAS is rolling along! We’re on day 4 and tomorrow have a mystery guest!

Every day at 9am Utah time, through December 24th, catch us live with all kinds of critters!

To follow all the action and catch up on all livestreams, please visit our VLOGMAS page at the site.

On this page, there is also tentative calendar of VLOGMAS action, the link to our updated Amazon Wishlist and ways you can submit ideas, question and suggestions!

From the webgeek: Martin’s and Susan’s Birthdays are coming up very soon! Martin on the 9th and Susan on the 16th! We’ll be live with VLOGMAS on both those days so please send along your birthday messages for sharing during the show!

Also we now have two people who want to help out with the mongo drive for our video files. Since it is a lot of dough, we’re looking for a few more people who might want to help out too.

Many thanks, we’ve already received some super feedback and ideas only four days into VLOGMAS!

I can be contacted at [email protected]

Thank you Findlay Subaru!!!

The VLOGMAS Fundraising Goal is $5000.00

  • We’ve already raised $3118 at YouTube and $4718 to our site!
  • From today until December 24th, all donations on the site will also be towards our VLOGMAS goal!


YouTube gives us 100% of money donated through their site, they cover all transaction fees.

You can find the link along side any of the VLOGMAS videos.

24 Days With Martin & the Critters!

Many many youtubers combine video blogging and Christmas into a challenge called Vlogmas.
This means uploading a new video from December 1st until December 24th.
For us, it means a morning livestream at 9am utah time (and they will be archived for view anytime).
So that’s the rough plan…check in with everyone every morning from December 1st through December 24th maybe for a half hour or so, maybe less, maybe more.

Amazon Wishlist

There are few smaller items left on our revised wishlist:
If you’d like to check it out, here’s the Revised Amazon Wishlist

However, we recently pulled off three higher priced items in order to include their costs in our VLOGMAS fund raising goal of $5000.00.

The last table, the chair sets and big screen tv for the new facility as well as “RAID” video storage solution are all included under that $5000.00 goal.

Through December 24th, all donations to the site will be towards this goal!

Rodent Pro

A great way to help feed the critters is by donating gift certificates to Rodent Pro. That way we can order precisely what we need and weight each box to get the best possible shipping rate.
Best way to purchase the gift certificates is to give them a call at: (812) 867-7598.
They will need:

  • Our email: [email protected]
  • Our name: Enoch Wildlife Rescue
  • The gift certificates are emailed to us, so no need worry about shipping information.

You can visit the Gift Certificate page of their site here.
However, it is a little tricky, the video below explains why.

Thank you Findlay Subaru of St. George!

Rescue Center is Now Under Construction

Dear Friends and Followers of the Southwest Wildlife Foundation – Enoch Wildlife Rescue,

The day has finally come. The new wildlife rescue center is now under construction. The permitting process has been completed. The groundwork is completed, the concrete has been poured for the footings and we’re getting ready to erect the 40 x 100-foot eagle flight chamber building.

Once the eagle flight chamber is standing, we will start construction of our wildlife care clinic and reception area and the 15 additional smaller chambers for hawks, owls and falcons. I’ve been waiting for this day for more than 50 years.

All of our hard work and the kind and generous donations from all of you my friends, is making this project possible. I don’t believe its possible to put into words how grateful I am to each and every one of you. For anyone planning a trip in our direction I hope that you will stop by so that I may thank you in person.

The projected date for the completion of the project is early January. As we get closer to the rescue center being operational, we will let you know about our plans for a grand opening. Until then we will do our best to keep you updated on our progress.

With tremendous appreciation.

Martin & Susan Tyner

Share the Love at Red Cliffs Bird Fest

Martin is providing a birds of prey program for the Red Cliffs Bird Festival on Saturday, April 29th at 6:30 pm

This event will be located at the Hilton Gardens behind the Convention Center, 1453 Sunland Drive, St. George, UT and is free to the public.

Our host: Red Cliffs Audubon has welcomed St. George Findlay Subaru to attend and present Enoch Wildlife Rescue with their 10th annual Subaru of America’s “Share the Love” donation check at this program. They have donated over $80,000 to Enoch Wildlife Rescue in the past 9 years which has helped us tremendously with our wildlife rescue and educational outreach programs.
