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, does not have sufficient funds to see us through the remainder of this year. Currently we have app. 36 frozen rodents for raptors, which will be about enough to feed one hawk or owl for one week. We are in dire need of funds for mealworms for songbirds, as well as gas money to pick up these various critters from pretty much the entire southern half of the state of Georgia, from Macon to the Florida line, and drive them to the vet as needed. Our reserve funds, set aside to build a raptor flight pen and renovate our songbird flight pen, have instead been required for gas, wildlife food and related supplies. Without your help, we may have to severely curtail our operations or shut down altogether for the remainder of 2012. No donation is too small; if 100 people donate just $12 each, we can meet this goal. (Larger donations are, of course, more than welcome.) Thanks for helping us give Nature's children a second chance!

Many thanks to those who've donated; we're getting there! To my fellow Georgians, it should more be than a little embarrassing to you that the majority of the donations have come from out of state, from people who are highly unlikely to ever bring me wildlife to care for.

Thanks to the two people who've made donations; sadly enough, neither is even in the state of Georgia. This doesn't speak highly of the people of my own state, who can't be bothered to help support those who care for the orphaned, ill and injured wildlife of the state but are certainly quick to call and demand assistance when they find wildlife in need of care...

So far the sole donation I've received is from someone I don't even know but am grateful to for his decision to take action. Without additional funding, when the paltry sum I have left (under $100, so it won't last long) and the current food supplies are exhausted, I cannot care for any more wildlife this year. I'm at 10% over my intake level for this time last year, and the month's not over yet. Last year on this date I'd racked up 2667 miles; this year it's 4254--and this is meeting people halfway! Don't sit back and wait for "someone else" to donate--YOU are someone else!

I discovered your website just 3 weeks ago through a random email I received from GreatNonProfits. Thank you so much for taking the time to post pictures and stories of your rescues. Thank you for sharing the happy endings and the hopeless ones, the joy and the frustrations of what you do. I will keep reading and donating.

Heard of your plight from a fellow chatter @ HEGPS (Hornby Island Eagles). Hope this little bit helps you to keep up your wonderful work.

I know how expensive it is to care for wildlife. I hope you get enough to continue on.
