The holidays are over, and we are now into the new millennium. Wildlife Rescue Inc. has successfully raised, rehabilitated and released wildlife for 25 years, and we strive to continue with our mission into this new millennium, but we need your help.
We have set up a Giving Tree in the shelter, which gives our members the chance to help us continue providing care. Often there are everyday items and one-time purchases that are just out of our reach. These items are posted both on our Giving Tree and in our Wish List for 2000 (please see below).
If you can help us with a small or large purchase from our list, then that item will be removed from our Giving Tree. Once we receive the item, we will post your name, item and our thanks up on the Gratitude Tree, so that all our staff, volunteers and visitors can recognize your generous donation. Each and every item we can remove from the Giving Tree benefits WRI in the clinic or office, and of course, that benefits the wildlife that comes through our doors.
Thank you in advance for your help, and happy new year.
WRI is blessed with many generous volunteers, and we couldn't do our work without them. Every now and then, we like to give one of them special recognition in The Rescuer for going the extra mile. Terry Keible has been volunteering at the shelter for a year and is learning as fast as she can to prepare for the upcoming busy season. She is currently working and training two shifts per week with Sarah Scanlan in order to become a shift captain. Terry also helped with the soft release of squirrels last fall.
Terry loves her work at WRI. "Seeing animals up close and working with them is an incredible experience," said Terry. "The best part of working at Wildlife Rescue is being able to release the animals back into the wild."
Faithful volunteer, Terry Keible, enjoys the rewards of helping animals get back to their natural habitats.
