Feeling especially generous?

Golf Cart, electric (because they are quieter for the animals) for disabled visitors taking tours

Van or SUV, used low mileage, good condition to consolidate transports

And best of all, monetary donations to purchase what is needed, where they have it and when it is needed. Some specialty foods such as that for the raptors must be ordered from out of state. Certain building supplies must be ordered from a wildlife rehabilitation-approved source.

Food and small supplies may be dropped off at Kindness Animal Hospital during regular business hours (1902 Hallie Road between Chippewa Falls and Eau Claire, phone 715-834-9201)
