COVID-19 and Difficult Times

Dear Friends,

As everyone knows, COVID-19 has changed life, probably for a very long time, in New York State (and the rest of the world). As a result, we are having to cancel all of our public events. This will be until further notice, but as of right now it appears to mean we might not have an event season in 2020 at all. We all hope we can get back on track, of course, and will update you as information is known.

This not only makes us sad, because we so enjoy meeting all of you as we travel around with the Wildlife Wagon, it also puts NYWRC in a very difficult situation.

A large portion of our funding comes in through those events. We still have dozens and dozens of non-releasable wildlife and rescued animals to feed and care for. Without those funds, this is going to be very difficult to do.

Our animals need your help.

We understand that times are hard right now, and a lot of people have nothing to give. However, if you do have the resources, please donate to our cause. The situation we’re facing this year is unprecedented and was certainly unpredictable. If you can reach into your heart, and click the DONATE button on the website, or send a check to PO Box 410, Middleburgh, NY 12122, we will be eternally grateful.

Also, one of our volunteers has created a Facebook Fundraiser for their birthday this year. If you are on Facebook, and prefer to donate that way, please visit our Facebook page, where the fundraiser has been shared.

With gratitude,

Wes Laraway, director
and all of us at NYWRC/NELR

Oscar, one of our resident Bobcats
