About Us


I’m Kim Barker, a Canadian writer living in Idyllwild, California, and my passion is animal rescue photography. I’ve spent the last four years meeting wildlife rehabbers all over the country and have been amazed by their willingness to do whatever it takes to help animals. The wildlife rehabber is the one up at dawn feeding a baby squirrel who lost his mom, or comforting a lonely baby river otter, or shedding tears over the baby hummingbird who didn’t make it. I don’t have what it takes to be a wildlife rehabber myself, but what I can do is help make sure they have the best equipment possible. I started Baby Warm in 2014 to do just that.

Baby Warm would not have seen the light of day if not for a bunch of animal lovers who chipped in to help out. The incredibly talented Leda Takacs designed the site and sweet logo that perfectly encapsulates what Baby Warm is all about, as well as the adorable little animals you’ll see on many of the pages.  The Baby Warm website would not exist without the expertise and dedication of our board member Michael Scarchilli who handled the web development. Kathy Lovin and Kristy Sullivan, also Baby Warm Inc. board members, have provided endless support. And Marcia Rybak of Coast & Canyon Wildlife Rehabilitation provided advice from the rehabber’s point of view, and introduced us all to the world of wildlife rehabilitation. To all of them, and to all of you who will join us in helping wildlife rehabbers and the orphaned baby animals in their care, thank you!

Operated completely by volunteers, Baby Warm’s minimal operating expenses include Paypal fees, web hosting and licenses. If you’d like to donate to help us cover those costs and keep Baby Warm up and running, please donate right here. If you prefer to donate directly toward an incubator, visit our rehabber page to pick a recipient. Thank you!
