THANK YOU TO ALL DONORS WHO DONATED DURING THE GIVE DAY ON MAY 1ST!
Do you think you're seeing things? Well - you're right! There was a young opossum hanging out with his adoptive bunny family in Papillion. Mr. Opossum was rescued by a rehabber and joined another opossum buddy later that same day.
GET READY TO DONATE DURING THE GIVE TO LINCOLN DAY! For 24 hours on May 28 you can donate to WRT. Beginning on May 1, you can go online to Give to Lincoln Day and pledge your amount as if it was May 28th. So you can plan ahead and still make a difference for these animals!
THANK YOU to the 2nd year Vet Tech class at Iowa Western Community College for inviting WRT to present to their class! We always enjoy telling you about what we do! Great questions!
