Sunday we went to a fundraiser for a local non-profit wildlife refuge, Wolf Run. They had a good brunch, silent auction and egg hunt. However, the kids’ (my son, niece and little cousin) favorite part of the day was seeing all the animals, including tame wolves and deer and not-so-tame lions, cougars and a monkey. We are planning to go to a fundraising activity at the nearby Primate Rescue Center next month.
Programs like these that depend solely on private donations have been some of the hardest hit in this economy. If you are in a position to help these or similar charities in your area, please consider doing so.
The animals will thank you for it!
