Which Animal Do You Want To Help?
Thinking of making a donation for the holidays? Wild at Heart particularly needs:
-alfalfa, hay, and straw
-flat bed dollies
CORVIDS & WATERFOWL
We love a bit of everything – frozen fruits and vegetables, cracked corn, unflavoured meat (small minnows, fish, chicken, turkey, ground beef), live insects and farm food (donate here), eggs…whatever you can donate! Sometimes we also need medical treatments and wing wraps (donate here to finance live-saving medical procedures).
SMALL AND MEDIUM MAMMALS (squirrels, foxes, raccoons, hares)
We are Wild at Heart’s most frequent admission – over 500 in 2017 alone! We need species-specific formula (donate money here), frozen vegetables and fruit, small frozen minnows, spiceless ground beef/chicken/fish, unsalted nuts, Kleenex, and wood shavings. Don’t forget you can symbolically adopt a red fox, raccoon, porcupine, or striped skunk too!
Each year, three species of turtles (snapping, painted, and Blanding’s (pictured)) are admitted with shell fractures. They require medicine and heat lamps to recover (donate financially here), eat small frozen minnows, greens (lettuce, kale), and earthworms. You can also symbolically adopt a painted turtle, snapping turtle, or Blanding’s turtle.
SONGBIRDS & PIGEONS
We eat wild bird seed, unsalted sunflower seeds, cracked corn, frozen fruits and vegetables, and creamed corn (baby food jars), and pigeon pellets and live insects (donate money here). For bedding, we use disposable pee pads, Kleenex, and white paper towel.
