Giving Tuesday and other news

Thanks to our fantastic supporters, Giving Tuesday was an amazing success.  Super-thanks go out to all of our supporters who care enough to help us help the voiceless.  Once we are able to calculate the totals, we will be back with an update.

Please consider stopping by our yard sale this weekend and do some shopping from 9AM -5PM  on Friday, November 30th and Saturday, December 1st.

Check out our latest addition to our online store and pick up WCV’s first ever sunset calendar for only $15  at  Who doesn’t like sunsets?

All proceeds from our calendar and yard sales go to helping our first migrant white pelican patient  of the season (and all of his other roommates at WCV) who was very sick but recovering nicely from red tide poisoning.  We are hopeful to send this guy back to cleaner waters soon.

Giving Tuesday is Here!

Giving Tuesday is here!!   YOUR DONATION WILL BE DOUBLED!

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 to take advantage of the attention given to “Black Friday”.  It is a one day event that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy.

The Center receives no direct support from any city, county of state authority.  We are solely dependent on contributions from generous supporters like you.

This year, thanks to a generous long time supporter who wishes to remain anonymous, every donation on Giving Tuesday up to a total of $10,000.00 will be doubled.  This is really exciting news.

If you give $25.00 the Wildlife Center will get $50.00.  If you give $100.00 The Center will get $200.00.

Donating on Facebook will be the easiest way to support us on Giving Tuesday, but you can also donate directly on our web page:

Either way, all donations on Giving Tuesday up to a total of $10,000.00 will be doubled.

At the Wildlife Center of Venice (501c3 Non-Profit), we are committed to the preservation, rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife in our local community.  We service all of Sarasota and West Charlotte counties in the State of Florida. We work hard each day to uphold these values, but we need each and every one of you to help us in this noble cause.
