Painted Turtle: Wild at Heart "Species Spotlight"

As a non profit organization (registered charity: 857767206RR0001), Wild at Heart depends on the generosity of our community to continue our mission to professionally treat wildlife and educate about human-wildlife interactions. Your support helps us to treat over 900 wild animals annually by purchasing specialized formula, nutrient-rich diets, quality medical supplies, new equipment, and much more. Without you, Wild at Heart would not be here today. Thank you for your continued support!

Anytime you eat at the Taphouse Northern Grill + Pub (1500 Regent Street) or Boston Pizza (120 Donna Drive), be sure to write “Wild at Heart” on the bottom of your receipt. When you drop it off in the receipt box by the front, each restaurant will donate 10% of the bill to Wild at Heart. If you can’t find the box, use the terminology “fundraising or team program”, or leave your receipts with a manager.
