Due to an overabundance of admiration, respect and "attagirls" and a corresponding lack of firm financial support, Laurens Wildlife Rescue, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is in dire need of funding again this year. As usual, LWR has received large numbers of songbirds and raptors, and some mammals and reptiles, from pretty much the entire southern half of the state of Georgia, from Macon to the Florida line, and very few of the people bringing this wildlife have donated toward its care. Baby songbird season is winding down, but as fall and winter approach, we will see an influx of raptors as they begin their migration from Parts North. The few rodents we have on hand will not see us through the fall and winter, and there will not be enough left from the $300 currently in our coffers to purchase more, as most—if not all—of that $300 will be wiped out as we wind down baby songbird season. We need funds to renovate our songbird flight pen and build a raptor flight pen, as we currently have nowhere to house raptors and our songbird flight pen is unsafe and shouldn’t really be in use this year. This will be the last year it’s usable; without a new flight pen, LWR will have to shut down before baby songbird season next year—if we haven’t already shut down due to lack of funds to care for the fall/winter raptors. Breaking it down by category, app. $1000 is needed for supplies; a songbird flight pen will cost app. $1000, and a small raptor flight pen will cost app. $2000. No donation is too small, although larger donations are, of course, greatly preferred! Thanks for helping us give Nature's children a second chance. Don't sit back and wait for "someone else" to donate—YOU are someone else!
