On June 3rd, 2016, Wild At Heart held our 7th Annual Wild About Comedy dinner at the Sixth Avenue Golf & Country Club. It was a tremendous success! We were sold out and had a new HIGH for our proceeds brought in. A sincere thank you to all guests who bought tickets, our fabulous entertainment Mark Crocker (ventriloquist extraordinaire!), the great jazz of Rosewood Songs (Craig and Marshall), and of course, all of our sponsors, volunteers and auction item donors.

We presently have well over 150 baby animals that are being cared for and requiring feeding and care every 2 or 3 hours. Soon they will be over 3 months of age and will be moved into larger outdoor enclosures with a daily menu of great foods, exercise programs, and training on how to obtain their own food items in the great outdoors. They will be released in August/September to give them a good chance to acclimatize to their new environment before fall and winter – summers go by so quickly in wildlife rehab centres!
If any people are interested, Wild At Heart always needs volunteers. Interests may include animal care, fundraising, construction/maintenance, and education. Please contact Monica, our Education Coordinator at 705 692 4478. Wild At Heart is the only wildlife rehab centre in our area and we are very grassroots focused. We do not receive any payments as an organization, and rely on our volunteers and donors.
We are now staring to work on our annual calendar and you will see us at some of Sudbury’s summer festivals and outdoor events sharing our awareness of wildlife and environmental issues. Let us know if you want to help!
