These young pups’ mother was killed by a car. They wandered from their den, were rescued, and cared for until ready for release.

“Holding “Wild Spirits,” our major fundraising effort, in a totally new space is a challenge,” explained WES Director Cindy Kamler. “Our event evolved within the wonderful space at Mountain Light Gallery. This year, we will need to create and shape space within the Heritage Arts Building.”

“But we will still be offering yummy free food and wine, fun door prizes, and a wide variety of silent auction items for yourself or holiday gifts,” Kamler promised.  “Our furry, feathered and scaled Wildlife Ambassadors (Razzle the Raven, Spirit the Red-tailed Hawk and, Half-Z–a Belding’s ground squirrel, Early Girl–a Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel, and others) will be there, too.”

Wildcare (formerly Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care) is the only wildlife rehabilitation facility serving the Inyo-Mono area. We admit close to 500 animals (birds, mammals and reptiles) a year, give free education programs, and provide advice and assistance for dozens of people-animal problems. As a non-profit organization, WES must rely on donations from individuals, local businesses, and family foundations to carry out our work.

Donation at the door is $15; kids 12 and under are free. The money we raise at Wild Spirits helps pay for medicines, food and supplies for the patients at the Center.

For further information, to be a sponsor, or donate an auction item, call Wildcare at 760-872-1487.
