Wildlife baby shower event success, fundraising efforts continue through June

June 7, 2024

The von Arx Wildlife Hospital at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida hosted our in-person wildlife baby shower event on Saturday, June 1. All guests who attended and brought a donation from the wishlist received a free admission pass to the Conservancy’s Nature Center. Nearly 100 people attended bringing in over 180 donations from the wishlist. A special and sincere thank you to all who took the time to support our native wildlife this baby season.

The event welcomed guests to our campus and offered treats donated by Nothing Bundt Cakes, themed donuts, energy drinks, and lemonades from The Bean Cafe on the Go, and cookies from Publix at Marketplace at Pelican Bay.

Special donations were also received, including towels from the Hilton Naples, boxes from Ray the Mover, and snuggies from the Sew and Sews.

The online baby shower will continue through the month of June. Donations can be made by purchasing from our Amazon wishlist and Chewy wishlist, donating through our website, or dropping off donations from our wishlist directly at the hospital. Thank you for caring for our native wildlife and supporting our hospital team as they work tirelessly to care for precious baby animals!
