From our Executive Director, Stephanie Ellis. “Thank you to all who attended Wild Care's 4th Annual "Wild Baby" Shower on June 29th. Thanks to you, we raised over $1,300 in donations, and received DOZENS of supplies and gift cards valued over $1,000. Your support directly helps us to care for, the orphaned birds, squirrels, opossums, mice, and ducklings - in our care. Thank you especially to Undercover Tent & Party for their donation of a large tent for our event. We are grateful!”
“We are extremely thankful for the support of the community,” states Stephanie Ellis, WIld Care’s Executive Director. “Wild Care is not open to the public, so this is the one day of the year when we can give people a sneak peek at what we do. It is such a fun event for children and adults of all ages. The rain didn’t frighten anyone away. In fact, we had our best turnout ever, with over 200 people in attendance throughout the day. We are thrilled to offer this event to our wonderful, wildlife-loving community, and to give back to them for their continued support of our work all year-long.”
