Spring is when babies are leaving their nests, holes or cavities and many becomed orphaned due to human activities or even worse, cruel and sometimes illegal activity.
These events happen on top of our 'regular' patient load, such as animals hit by vehicles, caught in traps that injure them and poisonings, just to name a few. We have to have food and supplies on hand at all times and these resources dwindle every day as needed. Spring time causes these needed items to disappear even quicker while donations dwindle as well.
Just because the donations and funds become depleted, the animals keep coming, still needing our help. Our supplies run low or completely run out. It's a very stressful and busy time for everyone, but we must continue to provide for our patients.
We have to be prepared for anything at anytime and all of this requires money. Our group is one of the few left that does not take any of it's donations for personal use, such as paying volunteers for their time or myself, taking any compensation for my work. All the money goes to the wildlife expenses. Please consider a donation through our Pay Pal account or our address is listed on the 'location' link. If people waited until they needed our services to make a donation, many of us will not survive to provide that service.
