The 2018 rescue season, so far, has been pretty insane. Our volunteers and director have been going non-stop with rescue, as well as trying to keep up with our educational schedule. We have so many people to thank for their help, that we don’t know where to start.
One of our favorite humans on the face of the earth (or any other planet, for that matter) is veterinarian Dr. Joan Puritz. In one day this past week, she tended to a car-load of our orphans, including setting the broken leg on a little squirrel who’d been caught in a mouse trap, and then transported two badly injured snapping turtles to Cornell for us! And that was just one day! How can you thank that kind of dedication to the cause of helping wildlife?
We also have to extend extra special thanks to our volunteer Sarah (“Sass”), who is always there for us, and goes out of her way to meet people with injured animals, transport animals to the vet, tend to their day to day needs, and just be there for NYWRC. Always. In fact, Sass took the photo of the little guy on this page.
Wes and Kelly will also be traveling to a number of educational events this coming month. Be sure to stop by and say hello if you’re in the area! You can see where we’ll be, by visiting our Upcoming Events page. We include our visitors, and the venues that host the events, in our thanks, of course! They allow us to teach the public about treating wildlife with wisdom, respect, and kindness.
And of course, none of this would be possible without our supporters. Your donations have kept us going, and have saved so very many lives. Every gift for the animals is dearly needed, and deeply appreciated.
Thank you from NYWRC, and all of the critters who pass through our doors.
