What’s New at WCA

wca-raccoon-teeDonate and Get a Special T-Shirt! They are handy masked backyard denizens. Celebrated in story, songs and films like Disney’s Pocahontas or the more recent Guardians of the Galaxy raccoons are a favorite in our animal world. They are smart, family oriented animals that possess paws very similar to human hands. That clever intelligence is why the Wildlife Care Association (WCA) needs your help keeping them safe as they recover after rescue in our region.

Raccoons are one of the top 3 mammal species taken in by WCA every year, and they are often found orphaned after a parent has been killed, or trapped and relocated. Smart and feisty, raccoons are a handful to raise and require special care while they are prepared for return to the wild.

You can help these babies have a second chance at life by donating to WCA’s campaign to crowd-fund a new enclosure, which will include room for them to play, exercise and learn survival skills.
