COVID-19 Notification to the public and volunteers
Although our mission is the rescue, rehabilitation and release of local wild animals, there is no higher priority to our entire operation than the safety of our employees, volunteers and members of the public that bring us animals, supplies and donations.
We are monitoring information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as federal, state and local agencies to help ensure our actions are in line with the latest recommendations and guidance. We are communicating regularly with our staff in order to keep them informed and to ensure their safety and that of our interns, volunteers and the public. We are willing to do whatever is necessary to keep everyone safe.
All volunteer shifts are suspended until further notice. The Volunteer Coordinator will update our current volunteers as the situation continues to evolve.
Our animal intake process will be modified as a precaution. This includes the use of gloves by all intake personnel, the continued availability of hand sanitizer, more frequent disinfecting of shared items and surfaces, plus procedures intended to keep our personnel at a distance from members of the public and members of the public away from each other. We are also urging all staff to be vigilant about frequent hand washing, and instructing employees who feel ill to stay home and consult their healthcare providers.
We will question every visitor about their recent travel history and their current respiratory health. We ask that all members of the public who have any cold-like symptoms find someone else to drop their injured and abandoned animals with us.
Thank you for your continued support of our 42 year old community organization. We will get through this and Wildlife Care plans on supporting our community for the next 42 years.
