Have you ever been in a situation where you saw a sick or injured animal and didn’t know what to do or who to call? Maybe it was a bird that flew into a window or was an animal that was injured after being hit by a car. Well, the charity that will be receiving funds on behalf of The Streets Initiative for the next two months is a very unique organization that serves a very critical role in this regard for the Edmonton and Northern Alberta area. Known as Wild North Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation, this organization was founded in 1989 and their aim is to create a respectiful coexistence between people and wildlife.
Their veterinarians, vet technologists and trained staff field 12,000 wildlife related calls per year with 800 of those consisting of rescue requests throughout the province. Wild North has a rehabilitation center equipped with flight pens, pods, and housing that is used to treat the sick and injured animals until they are able to be released back to the wild. They rely heavily on their over 200 volunteers and many ways are available to help Wild North including donations, animal or bird sponsorships, or by joining their volunteer staff. In fact, Wild North even has a 50/50 several times per year! Please visit http://www.wildnorth.ca for more information and, as always, you can head to the donations tab on my main menu to support my cause and also Wild North with a contribution. Any donation is greatly appreciated!
Thanks very much Edmonton!
