2016 Dinner Dance: Another Success!

Our annual Wildlife Works Dinner Dance Fundraiser was a success again this year!  We deeply thank the many individuals who were able to spread the word to their communities, and all those who attended the event.  We had delicious food, many Chinese Auction items and several Silent Auction items up for bid. After taking into account our expenses for hosting the event, the total profit was greater than $3,500. It is because of the generosity of others that we are able to do what we do best…..rescue, rehab, and release!

Wildlife Rescue Rules

Spring is on its way and wildlings will soon be out and about! If you see an animal that may be in distress, please refer to our Wildlife Rescue Rules before intervening.
