Charity Of Choice

We want to be in partnership with you as YOUR CHARITY OF CHOICE!


Only you can help us reach our sustainability goals!
We hope to eventually attain 1/3 of our budget through donors, 1/3 through business partnerships, merchandise sales etc. and 1/3 from grants.

Walden’s Puddle is a 501c3 non-profit. We receive NO State or Federal funding. We can only do this important work because of the generosity of our community of donors! Did you know we are an Environmental and Conservation Organization as well as an Animal Rehabilitation and Education Organization? We have “Hands On” Environmental and Conservation impact!

Walden’s Puddle is the only professionally staffed wildlife rehabilitation and education center in middle Tennessee. We offer a service to the humans who find and bring the animals to us, and the animals we admit and care for! We admit over 3500 injured and orphaned animals of over 120 different species per year. People in our community, who take the time to rescue an animal in need, bring them to us. Our return to the wild rate is above the national average.

It is illegal to keep a wild animal in Middle Tennessee, so we are their greatest chance and hope for survival and a happy ending!

Please feel free to contact our CEO Lane Brody at 615-714-4002 or lane@lanebrody.com if you are interested in talking over the possibility of how to make “The Puddle” your charity for a special day, week, month or year that you plan for your companies charitable giving! We also offer many volunteer opportunities!
