Wild Care Inc, the wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center located in Eastham, received proceeds from their 24th Annual Yard Sale, held on June 9, 2018, 9 AM – 1 PM at the Harwich Community Center, totaling $7,226.
From Wild Care’s Executive Director, Stephanie Ellis: “A gracious thank you to our volunteers who gave their time and energy towards making this event a success, and to the Cape Cod community who donated hundreds of items for the sale. Special thanks to Jan Raffaele, our volunteer Yard Sale Coordinator, for her amazing leadership of Wild Care’s 24th Annual Yard Sale.
"The Yard Sale is one of Wild Care’s largest and most important events. We rely on community support to make this event happen,” states Stephanie Ellis, Executive Director of Wild Care “It is an incredible sight, to see nearly 200 people lined up at the door on the morning of the sale, seeking treasures, and supporting Wild Care. We are also incredibly grateful to Carolyn Carrey, Executive Director of the Harwich Community Center, for hosting Wild Care’s Yard Sale yet another year. Clean out your closets everyone, because Wild Care’s Yard Sale will be held at the Harwich Community Center on Saturday, June 8th, 2019!”
Yard Sale proceeds will fund WIld Care’s Mission: to help sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife through Wildlife Rehabilitation; to reduce the number of animals impacted by human activity through Educational Outreach; and to help protect the species and the ecosystems they represent through Advocacy and Conservation.
Since its founding, Wild Care has accepted over 27,000 wild creatures, representing 275 species of native birds, mammals, and reptiles. On average, Wild Care receives over 1,700 wild animals per year for treatment. It is a vital part of Wild Care’s mission to help educate the public on ways they can avoid harming our animal neighbors. Wild Care works with the community to positively impact the lives of wild animals through our counseling, educational efforts, and outreach.
