NAPLES, Fla. (May 12, 2020) – Spring may have looked a little different for us, but for wildlife, it was business as usual. And that means baby bird season has arrived!
The Conservancy of Southwest Florida’s von Arx Wildlife Hospital, which treats injured, sick and orphaned animals, is hosting a virtual Wildlife Hospital Baby Shower on Saturday, June 6 to help raise awareness and support for its youngest patients.
To participate and support the hospital’s work of treating 3,800 animals per year, the Conservancy is requesting Baby Shower donations of food, vitamins, husbandry items and household supplies, as well as monetary donations. Gifts can be donated online through the Conservancy’s Amazon Wish List.
“Our team is dedicated to treating any birds, mammals and reptiles in need of assistance, but baby animals always hold a special place in all of our hearts,” said Joanna Fitzgerald, director of the Wildlife Hospital. “The Wildlife Hospital Baby Shower is a unique way to showcase how we’re providing the best care possible while also letting community members know how they can help.”
The Baby Shower gift registry is listed online at Conservancy.org/BabyShower.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Conservancy relies on donations to provide items that are essential to patient care, ranging from food and medicine to medical equipment and cleaning supplies.
