Here is the AWI 2015 Wish List
Thank you for all of your support in 2014! Welcome 2015!!!
THANK YOU to all of our supporters, 1st Responders, veterinary support teams, critter cabbies, student workers, volunteers and staff….for making moments like this possible this past year – giving our wild neighbors a second chance!! We have big plans to make 2015 awesome, are you with us?! (juvenile Bald Eagle release May 2014, photo credit: Darla Miles)
Have you considered making your year end charitable contribution yet?
There is still time to make a donation and receive your 2014 tax deductible receipt! And it’s easy too! Just follow the secure link “donate now” on the top right. Your support goes towards the care of the many patients presently calling AWI their home, like this Snowy Owl, just one of 12 Birds of Prey currently here! Thank you!
Not the way we want to welcome in the winter solstice. Just returned from a night call by retrieving this Snowy Owl, found in Aulac in a snowy ditch off the old highway. It didn’t take long to find this poor guy in the dark. He was only able to flop his wings slightly with no hope of getting off the ground. Thank you to the Hicks family who spotted the Owl and called us asking to help.
With all the wet roads it isn’t uncommon to get calls like this one today. An AWI follower found this Red-throated Loon up near Magnetic Hill, NB on the road. Easily mistaken as an open waterway, roadways are big hazards for these waterbirds. With legs very far back on their body which are specifically designed for diving and swimming under water, it is impossible for Loons to take off from land, so this bird was grounded. View More
Did you know we are proud to be a #GivingTuesdayCa partner!
WE THANK ALL OF YOU – our donors, volunteers, partners and 1st Responders for helping in all the ways you do, giving of your time, expertise and donations to keep our charitable organization going!!!
Releases and admissions, a never ending process!
In the past month alone, we have been able to release over 50 wildlife patients that we have been caring for either the last couple of months or those that had to be wintered over because of weather conditions. New patients come in everyday, a never ending process and a lot of times we can’t save the animal that is sent to us, so we do celebrate those that we can provide a second chance for! Thank you to all of you that help us do our work! View More
