Join Sierra Wildlife's Baby Shower and Help Save Lives

04/03/2015 06:52AM ● By Brenna McGowan

Spring babies of all species are coming into Sierra Wildlife Rescue, and they are holding a Baby Shower to raise funds for their care. 

This is a non-event – no tickets to buy, no luncheon to attend, no gifts to purchase – just put your feet up and relax at home, while helping us to care for our wildlife babies!

SWR rehabilitated 1,164 orphaned and injured wild mammals and birds last year.  They are committed to, and love, rehabbing and never turn an animal in need away, but it can be expensive. 

Among the animals rehabbed last year were 613 songbirds, at a cost of $20 for each;  84 raptors, at $50 each; 27 fawns, at $225 each; 150 squirrels at $75 each; 2 foxes, at $300 each; 6 coyote pups, at $600 each; and 88 rabbits, at $40 each.

Most of the animals SWR receives are rescued by residents throughout El Dorado County; we couldn’t do what we do without your kindness and concern for wildlife.  Approximately 27% percent come from Placerville, with a total of 36% coming from El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park and Pollock Pines, 11% from Shingle Springs, and 6% from other areas.

It’s easy to join Sierra Wildlife Rescue's Baby Shower.  Just get out your checkbook, mail a check made out to Sierra Wildlife Rescue to P.O. Box 2127, Placerville, CA 95667ORGo online to; go to “Join Us” and then to “Donate Now.” Fill in the  form and send online. That’s all there is to it!

Thanks for your concern and caring for the wild babies!
