Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the daily operations at the Whatcom Humane Society wildlife rehabilitation center, which cares for thousands of injured and orphaned wildlife each year.
Since 2014 the Whatcom Humane Society has provided wildlife rehabilitation services to injured and orphaned wildlife. The WHS wildlife rehabilitation center facility is the only full service wildlife rehabilitation center in Whatcom County.
The WHS wildlife rehabilitation center is licensed to operate by the Washington State Department of Fish & Wildlife. The center employs specially trained staff, including two State licensed wildlife rehabilitators and a licensed veterinary technician. The center is supported by dedicated seasonal and year-round volunteers and interns who assist staff and help maintain the center's daily operations.
The goal of the WHS wildlife rehabilitation center is to rehabilitate and release animals back into their native habitat and educate the community about how to humanely co-exist with wildlife.
This past year, the wildlife rehabilitation center provided medical treatment, care, comfort and services to over 2,100 wild animals including: deer, bald eagles, swans, owls, hawks, opossums, raccoons, skunk, robins, crows, ducks, squirrels, beavers, marine mammals, gulls and rabbits.
The center is staffed 7 days a week, 365 days a year and is funded entirely by private donations and receives no State, City or County funds.
