Wild Care, a wildlife rehabilitation center located in Eastham, hosted their 4th Annual “Wild Baby Shower” on Saturday, June 29th from 10 AM - 3 PM at their facility, located at 10 Smith Ln, Eastham, MA. Attendees joined in on a celebration of all of WIld Care’s precious wild babies! Guests were treated to guided tours of some of Wild Care’s outdoor enclosures, including the Seabird Therapy Pool area. Wild Care Staff and interns hosted hourly meet-and-greet presentations with Wild Care’s Educational Animal Ambassadors; GARV the Eastern Box Turtle, and Nickerson and Up Up the Eastern Screech Owls.

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.”
