Giving Tuesday - #GiveWild
The holiday season is upon us and that means #GivingTuesday is almost here. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 28 What is it you ask? It is day of giving to help the charities and causes that are important to you. Our ability to treat thousands of injured and orphaned wildlife patients each year is only possible because of support from the community. We have been fortunate enough to be making a difference to our wild population since 1981.
Last year, we raised $6500 in a single day on #GivingTuesday. Can you help us surpass that goal? Our 2017 goal is $10,000. For every donation of $50 or more, we will send you a special gift. If you wish to mail us a check, just put #GivingTuesday in the subject line. Donations made online now through Wednesday morning (11/25 - 11/29) will qualify for the special gift and toward our donation total. Donate through our website donate page today to #GiveWild.
Does your employer offer matching donation contributions? Just submit the paperwork at work, and we will do the rest to verify the donation. Thank you for helping us make a difference everyday. Here are just some of our recent patients.
1. Northern Pygmy-owl - this is one of two that we cared for this past month. Both were injured in car strikes and found in the road. Both recovered and were released. 2. Long-tailed weasel recovering from rodenticide poisoning. He is still being treated for the poison, but is recovering and will eventually be released. 3. This Red-tailed hawk came to us after he was found in the road. He was lucky to have only suffered lacerations and no fractures. The wound was across the entire chest, but it healed beautifully and he was released earlier this past week.
Thank You
Thank You to everyone who helped last month by sharing and voting in the Starbucks Upstanders challenge. We had the leading number of votes, which is amazing - and, we could not have done it without your support. The contest rules stated that the judges would select two charities from the top 10 vote earners. Winners will be announced on November 30. 
Also, Thank You everyone who attended our recent fundraiser event Wine and Wings at Northwest Cellars in Kirkland. It was wonderful to talk with everyone and spend the afternoon with you.
Patient Updates
This young Coyote was transferred to us by Puget Sound WildCare in Kent. He is being treated for mange and was found very thin, basically a failure to thrive situation. We will care for him this winter and get him healthy and strong before he is released. If you look closely at the photo in the crate, he is using the head of a stuffed toy as a pillow. He tore it apart and dragged that part into the kennel with him.
1. Barred owl has surgery. She arrived with an open fracture to the left humerus. The bone was pinned and we are hopeful she will be able to fly again. 2. Another Red-tailed hawk in our care. This one was found on the ground, cold, wet, and unable to fly. He was filled with internal parasites but is doing much better. We hope he too will be released when he is stronger.
