Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre calls for funds to continue its work in 2019.
The centre has saved thousands of wild animals in more than 10 years of its work. Now it is going through difficult times and is asking for help.
Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre president Lisa Tretiak said that due to health problems she could not fulfill all her duties in the centre. Over the past years she has been working in the centre every day from morning to evening. Now, she will be undergoing surgery to remove an abdominal mass and a rehabilitation period after.
Therefore, the organization asks all caring people to make donations so that the center can hire employees for further work until Tretiak regains her health.
Simone Brandson, the centre’s education coordinator, explained that Lisa did at least 90 percent of all the work in Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. So, it is extremely important to find a person, or even several people, to do her work.
Spring is a special period for the centre because many migratory animals are returning from the south and they need help. In addition, spring is the season of new offspring, and many animal babies need care.
Prairie Wildlife is funded by individuals and also receives some grants. However, the absence of the president may negatively affect the donations.
At the moment, the organization plans to raise $10,000 to find someone who can take Lisa’s role this season. If you want to contribute, you can find all the necessary information on how to help animals and the centre on Facebook.
