Thank you to Everyone Who Supported Us

In This Year’s Giving Challenge!

The animals in our area are consistently impacted by sprawl and human activity. Helping these displaced and injured Floridians is our goal, and we need your help to accomplish this.

From noon on September 20 to noon on September 21, the Community Foundation is hosting a charitable event where they will double, or even triple your donation!

How it works:

  • If this is your first year taking part in the Giving Challenge, the Community Foundation will triple your donation of $25 to $100!
  • If you gave last year, your donation of $25 to $100 will be doubled!

Each family member can give a donation, and each donation from a different family member will count as a separate donation and also qualify for tripling. In other words I can give a hundred dollar donation, my wife can give a hundred dollar donation, and our daughter can give a hundred dollar donation. If none of us gave last year, that means our $300. becomes $900.00 for the WCV. So, you can see how important this event is for the center, and the wildlife we care for. Please tell all of your family and friends about what you are doing so they can help too.

This will help us expand our facilities and increase our rescues and rehabilitations.

Getting the Word Out!

In an effort to spread the word about what we do, we have decided to publish our first ad in the Herald Tribune. If you saw our ad in the Tribune, and are visiting us for the first time, then you have our gratitude. If you ever come across a wild animal in need please keep us in mind. It is the caring members of our community that make our work possible and rewarding.
