The first little orphan of 2022 is this very young baby porcupine. He was found with his dead momma, who had been killed by a car. A kind Samaritan brought him to Wes, late in the evening of April 7th. The poor little guy is so young that his umbilical stump is still attached.
A generous donor has gifted NYWRC with this beautiful 16-foot 2017 stock trailer. We will be auctioning it to the highest bidder!
It’s truly a beautiful trailer, and will be available for viewing at our facility. We will be accepting bids via Facebook Private Message to Wes, and already have one private bid of $1,000. Follow this post, where we will be posting the high bid updates. Do note that due to the great quality of this trailer, there will be a reserve on the item. Our posted comments will let you know when that reserve has been met.
New animals are coming in every day, and we still have many long-term residents here which cannot be released, and are kept on special educational permits. Their care is never-ending (and often expensive), but we are also grateful that they're here, because they help us to teach people how important it is to be a friend of wildlife and the environment, and how to live with our wild neighbors safely and respectfully.
We at New York Wildlife Rescue have a few special thank-yous to express today, for help received from our volunteers in the past few days! To our newest licensed rehabbers, Tyler Schmidt, Hannah Laraway, and Sarah Moffatt, thank you for all your help with the new babies, and especially that baby fawn!
How awesome are our Class of 2017 Middleburgh High School Seniors? On May 19th, they held a petting zoo on the front lawn of the school to raise money for New York Wildlife Rescue Center!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
