Wilderness Trail Wildlife Ct #SmallBusinessRelief

I am raising money to help me personally, so I can still care for my wildlife rescue, release and education program. I have a business that has been closed due to the Corona Virus. My business is a self employment vinyl graphics business, Poindexter Signs, that I have owned since 1998. This is/was my sole source of income. It allowed me to work on weekends, take my critters with me that needed care extra care. It is located in our local vendors mall. And making it even more worse is I’m recent single and trying to make it on one income, which isn’t even able to be open right now. The critters and I cannot survive like this. I can go outside the house and get a job, I don't mind that one bit, however doing so I will not be able to take care of all of the wildlife is pouring in right now. It is baby season and I am the ONLY licensed wildlife rehabilitator in my county and several other counties around me so these animals wouldn't make it without my care.

I have worked SO VERY HARD to get certified and official to care for these animals. I love each and every one of them. I have my state, USDA and international permits. I love taking care of these wonderful critters and would like to continue to do so, however I am a single parent and I have to pay the bills too and these critters have to have electric and water and such too... so :( 

If I can't get help asap I will be forced to relinquish all the critters in my care and I don't want to have to do that, but will do what is best for them.

All funds collected will go towards utilities, food, animal care, gas and vet bills, vehicle insurance... etc..  I am lucky that I do not have a vehicle payment or a house payment.

I will continue caring for these critters, so as long as I can pay the bills until my small business is able to open back up. All donations will go toward my business, Poindexter Signs, which will provide me with the funds that I need to continue operating during this rough time in our history. Thank you

You can check out what I've been doing and do on Facebook and Instagram at Wilderness Trail Wildlife Center FURWIN.

Blessings to anyone that can help. I know times are hard for us all right now, but we WILL get through this. #SmallBusinessRelief
