Wishlist: Tucson Wildlife Center
During these economically trying times 501(c)3 charities are fighting to stay afloat. Here in Tucson, we are privy to a very special place which rescues, rehabilitates, and releases (when possible) wildlife — bobcats, javelinas, coyotes, owls, pelicans, wild birds, eagles, raccoons, etc.
The most amazing concept about Tucson Wildlife Center is that it’s all volunteer — including the veterinarians and orthopedic surgeons who donate their valuable professional time.
TWC services include an emergency helpline operating 24/7, capture and transportation of injured animals, 24-hour emergency room, volunteer DVM on call, rehabiliation, release, and education. All services are provided free to the public.
Like any non-profit organization, donations and volunteers are key to their survival. But if you cannot afford to give money and/or time, the next best thing is to see what is on the “wishlist.” You just might have a case in your garage or will remember to pick up some bargains on your next visit to the big box store.
Tucson Wildlife Center WISHLIST:
–kitty litter, unscented Scoop Away
–gas gift cards
–peanuts, bagged unsalted
–chicken thighs and legs, frozen
–chicken breasts, frozen
During the month of August, these items (except the perishables) may be dropped off at Silver Sea Jewelry located at 330 N. 4th Avenue (624-9954) or contact TWC.
Also during the month of August, Beading Divas to the Rescue will be selling one-of-a-kind bracelets made with donated beads (one size fits most adults) for $20. The proceeds of bracelet sales go directly to the Tucson Wildlife Center.
You can buy bracelets at Silver Sea Jewelry (see above for address).
You can buy bracelets online via Etsy.com (add $4 for S&H)
And on Sunday – August 7 only…
