BENTON HARBOR — Behind a white house with blue shutters in Benton Harbor is Berrien County’s only licensed wildlife rehabilitation center.

Tari Howard and her husband, Rick, have run the Berrien County Wildlife Rehabilitation Center for 14 years, rescuing orphaned fawns and fox kits. Since their start, they have successfully released about 150 fawns into the wild.


Rescued orphaned fawns explore their surroundings Friday at wildlife rehabilitator Tari Howard’s Benton Harbor home.
