Arnold’s Lobster and Clam Bar Donates $9,000 to Wild Care

Eastham, MA – On September 8th, Arnold’s Lobster and Clam Bar owner Nate Nickerson donated all proceeds from the day, in honor of WILD CARE Cape Cod, a wildlife rehabilitation center in Eastham.

From 11:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., guests dined on ice cream, seafood, onion rings, and more at this popular Eastham restaurant. The benefit generated $9,000 in support of WILD CARE’S mission of rehabilitating and releasing sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.

“This fundraiser helps us to provide quality and individualized care for injured wildlife, and to continue to raise awareness about the impacts wildlife are facing on Cape Cod”, states WILD CARE Executive Director, Stephanie Ellis. “WILD CARE is dependent on public donations. We do not receive any state, federal, or municipal funding, and the cost of running WILD CARE for one month during the summer months is upward of $20,000. We have received over 1,400 animals this year. By comparison, we received 1,373 TOTAL for the year of 2016. This donation comes at a time of need, and we are incredibly grateful for Nate Nickerson’s kindness and his love of animals. Thank you, Arnold’s!”

WILD CARE strives to educate the public about how to co-exist with and reduce impacts on native wildlife.

WILD CARE would like to extend a special thanks to Nate Nickerson and his staff, and to all who dined at Arnold’s on September 8th.
