Sponsership

During a discussion with some of the other members of the local WIRES branch, someone suggested we look for sponsership of various animals. Since we're volunteers we don't get any funding: all our care work is self funded. Bats are easy so I'm not looking for money, but Kangaroos, euros, and wallabies can be in care for 6 months. One of the members has 25 joeys, 1 kestrel chick, 2 herons, 3 falcons and an eagle.

So, if you had a chance would you sponser an animal? WIRES is a registered charity so Aussies get a tax refund. Sponsers would get a photos of the animal/bird, and emailed updates. And the thanks of some tired people 8)

The money would go toward food, vet bills, bedding, transport for THAT animal only.
