Join Wild Care this #GivingTuesday* and help us raise $5,000!
Wild Care is just $5,000 away from purchasing our very own digital Radiograph Machine (think x-rays)! This machine is crucial to Wild Care as it creates a scanned image of the animal’s body, allowing us to see ingested hooks, bullets, fractured bones, and much more. With the aid of this powerful tool in-house, we can diagnose & care for sick & injured wildlife even more efficiently.
Please help us reach our goal today!

… can have a happy ending!
With the proper tools and equipment, like an in-house digital radiograph machine, Wild Care will be better equipped to aid injured animals. Birds like gulls (x-ray above), and Red-throated Loons (below the hook and gull x-ray), frequently ingest hooks, jigs, sinkers, lead shot and other foreign objects. We can often help them, but not without a radiograph machine!

* What is #GivingTuesday?
The holiday season brings cash flowing to retail businesses on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But what about non-profits? Most non-profits wouldn’t exist with some form of cash flow or donations. And thus, #GivingTuesday was born. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. It is a movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season. To learn more about #GivingTuesday, visit: https://www.givingtuesday.org.
