Cape Wildlife Center Launches Business Collaborative, Asks Cape Professionals to Donate to its Medical Clinic
The Cape Wildlife Center, a Cummaquid, Mass., wildlife rehabilitation center on Cape Cod operated by The Humane Society of the United States in partnership with the Fund for Animals, is launching a new initiative to raise funds for its medical clinic.
The new "friend-raising initiative" is called the Cape Wildlife Center Business Collaborative and asks businesses to donate $50 to underwrite the cost of medicine and clinical supplies.
"The business community is the lifeblood of Cape Cod and we are grateful for any assistance that we receive from our friends in commerce," said Theresa Barbo, director of the Cape Wildlife Center.
The Cape Wildlife Center focuses on wildlife care, wildlife advocacy and wildlife conflict resolution as its key missions. Since 1995, the Cape Wildlife Center has provided year-round care for 135 species of wildlife – from songbirds, waterfowl, raptors to raccoons, foxes and coyotes.
