Support wildlife with chance to win

Now through September 30, donate $5 to Sunrise Wildlife Rehabilitation and earn a chance to win this fabric collage and batik quilt by local artist and long-time WBU customer Joyce Lottinville.
Each $5 donation earns you one chance to win. There are no limits to the number of $5 donations and chances to win that any person can purchase. We will draw the winner by random number generator on Saturday, September 30 at 5:00pm. You do not need to be present to win.  Come check out the quilt in the store.
All year long, we field calls from people who are trying to figure out how to help sick or injured birds, especially during breeding season. Many of those calls end up being handled by a local, licensed wildlife rehabilitator. In addition to nursing wildlife back to health when possible, rehabbers also share their knowledge by offering educational programs where we can get closer views of animals that aren’t able to return to the wild.
