Great FrameUp-byLauraS RWS Photo Contest

Thanks to tremendous support from The Great Frame Up, we’re hosting our 1st annual photo contest. We received 100 entries and on October 25 had a fabulous reception at The Great Frame Up (pictured) to select the finalists. Stay tuned for an announcement about our grand prize winner.  All proceeds will go to support our mission to aid injured and orphaned native animals and return them to the wild.

August 29, 2014. Paint's on. Porch is done. Roof finished. Taking Flight

We’re almost there! Thanks largely to the extraordinary generosity of Alice Meador, who has given RWS a major gift in memory of her dear friend Becca Chaitin, and also to contributions from supporters like you, we have secured a $50,000 challenge grant from the Perry Foundation. We are now $300,000 closer to completing our new, permanent rehab facility. And we’re almost done! Check out our progress in these pictures. Our Taking Flight Fundraising Campaign continues as we seek to raise $250,000 more to continue our operations for the next several years as we transition to our new, expanded home.  We invite you to help us meet this challenge!
