Sanctuary Wish Lists
By KD Angle-Traegner / Last Update: October 2019
Animal sanctuaries and wildlife rehabilitators need support in order to keep helping animals. These groups often have extremely limited funds. Donating everyday items can help, especially for smaller organizations.
The people who run these groups do fantastic work. Let’s all come together to help them continue doing what they do best: Helping and caring for animals.
