2016 Marks our 14th year as a non-profit organization. We have a lot of new things planned! ▪ We're looking for a new property with more land that backs up to city or state park land. ▪ We'll be rewriting our wildlife rehabilitation manuals and finishing a book. ▪ We'll be redoing the websites. ▪ We'll be starting a membership with a newsletter, special offers and live wildlife programs. ▪ We'll be applying for grants to expand our program ▪ We expect to get our wildlife rescue numbers back up. We should be over 1,300. The economy has really taken a toll on our finances.
