Wildlife Hospital Baby Shower
It's that time of year again when we see a massive influx of babies admitted to the von Arx Wildlife Hospital. Our annual virtual Baby Shower is a way for us to raise awareness and support for our youngest patients.
We've opened up our Amazon Wish List. This is a great way to have a tangible impact on the level of care these baby animals receive. Your donation today will help provide supplies and support for our team as they care for the increased uptick in patient admissions.
