There are different types of events that we participate in throughout the year.
We attend community events such as Sanborn Farm Museum (Sanborn, NY), Pigapalooza (Ransomville, NY), and Wheatfield Town Picnic (Wheatfield, NY) just to name a few. We use these opportunies to educate the general public about wildlife. We hand out flyers about local wildlife and show our program animals, explaining how they were injured and how we helped them. We also promote other events we will be attending to each community so they can spread the word about who we are, what we do and how the community can help.
We also do educational classes at schools and for organizations such as Flips Gymnastics (Lockport, NY), Ransomville Story Hour (Ransomville, NY) and several others. At these events, we bring our program animals and teach children and parents about wildlife. We cover the DOs and DON'Ts when dealing with wildlife and what to do when you encounter a wild animal. Teaching best practices and safety is our priority at these classes.
Finally, we have an annual basket raffle that brings the entire county together to help us rescue, rehab and release the indigenous animals native to our area. This will be our 8th consecutive year holding this event. We have businesses from all over Niagara County offering up generous baskets of goodies for us to give away in a basket raffle setting. We have gift certificates and actual products varying in size and type. This event is fun for all ages, both children and adults. We always have our program animals on display so you can learn about them too! We have other groups such as Aware, Lakeview Animal Sanctuary and Pete Lotz (Falconer) showing their program animals as well. And don't forget the FOOD! We always have wonderful food such as, Chili, hot dogs, homemade baked goods and so much more! This year we will be serving some vegan choices; vegan chili and cup cakes. There will be something to eat for everyone!
There are many other animal events thoughout Niagara County that we will list here for your convenience.
If you would like us to come to your school or organization to talk about wildlife safety and to bring some of our program animals you can call us at 716-830-4375 or fill out the form below with your information.
We do not charge to come and speak to schools or organizations. We just ask that you provide a donation list of supplies to the families that attend the class. This allows the attendees to have the opportunity to help in any way they can; supplies or monetary donations. This helps us provide supplies to our volunteers so they can do more and help more animals throughout the season.
