After distilling about 8000 pages of notes from all the calls and critters I received in 2023 into a forty-six page report for the State and the Feds, I breathed a deep sigh of relief a few days ago. Every January I go through that process in order to renew my licenses. It is tedious, elicits memories, and prompts me to realize how many wildlife and human lives I affected last year. I am grateful for all of them. If you contacted me, your name is among those I included.
Now we are applying for grants in order to completely reconstruct our very worn-out, thirty-year-old caging that can no longer be fixed. We have a three year plan to accomplish that reconstruction and clean up and are thankful for the monies we have received toward the project from the Eau Claire Community Foundation and the Menomonie Rotary.
Thank you for all you have given to help feed and care for the critters.
Thanks, too, for caring about them,
