Received $1,380 in Donations – Wild Baby Shower
Thank you everyone who attended and was a part of our very special day! We had over 100 people attend and received $1,380 in donations, as well as hundreds of dollars in gift cards and supplies. This support directly helps us to care for the baby birds, squirrels, opossums, mice and baby gulls – in our care. We are grateful, and we are already looking forward to our Baby Shower 2018!
Special thanks to Wild Care Staff Amy Webster and Niki Walley for yet another great baby shower.
