|My name is Birgit Sommer. I am a licensed wildlife rehabilitator for the State of Texas, managing director of the Rainbow Wildlife Rescue in Stephenville, TX , as well as the vice president and foster parent for the Erath County Humane Society.|
We have raised $600 out of the $5000 that is needed before the start of the 2010 orphaned baby animal season, which will begin usually around mid February. Thank you soooo much!!!!
During these economically tough times I realize that there is not much money left to donate to charity, so let me share with you some items the Rainbow Wildlife Rescue needs that you might have and don't need anymore:
The top 5 most needed times are (extended wish list below):
I, like many other licensed wildlife rehabilitators, work out of my own home and volunteer my time and just about every spare cent I can gather towards animal rescue efforts and public education.
No local or state funding is available for animal caging, veterinary care, medicine and food. That's why most rehabilitators gratefully accept donations towards the care of animals they receive from the public.
The following are a few examples of how your donation can help:

Don't Buy, Adopt a Pet!
Whether you adopt a pet from a local animal shelter, rescue organization, or human society, it doesn't matter because you're saving lives! You probably want to adopt just one kitten or cat, right? Adoption saves more than just the life of the pet you adopt.
If you adopt from an animal shelter, you're making room for another dog or cat, or you're allowing other dogs or cats at the shelter to be kept for a longer period of time, giving them a better chance at being adopted.
If you adopt from a humane society or a rescue organization, you're allowing that organization to rescue another dog or cat for adoption at a public shelter, which, of course, saves the life of that little guy plus the lives of others at that shelter by creating space so new pets can be kept longer. As you can see, adoption is truly a continuous cycle of saving lives and it's the right thing to do!
