The San Diego Humane Society is holding its 13th annual Wildlife Baby Shower to help prepare for an influx of wild animals in the coming weeks and months.
The San Diego Humane Society’s Project Wildlife program takes in thousands of Injured and orphaned baby wildlife, which includes baby squirrels, bunnies, raccoons, opossums, bobcats, hummingbirds, and ducklings. The organization has set up a baby registry to help prepare for the arrival of a wide variety of wild species.
The public can participate in the virtual event by choosing to buy supplies from Amazon
or Target, or simply make a donation. To learn more, visit sdhumane.org/babyshower. According to the organization, every heating pad, bag of birdseed, and can of baby food purchased through the registries be sent directly to San Diego Humane Society.
“Your support will make a big difference for our tiniest wildlife babies,” said San Diego
Humane Society’s Senior Director of Project Wildlife Jon Enyart, DVM. “Every single donation will ensure the smallest animals who need our help get the shelter, nourishment, and medical care they need to thrive.”
San Diego Humane Society’s Project Wildlife program is the primary resource for wild animal rehabilitation and conservation education in San Diego County. The SDHS said it gives more than 13,000 injured, orphaned and sick wild animals a second chance through this program each year.
