The San Diego Humane Society’s Project Wildlife program will collect supplies between Tuesday and Feb. 9 to care for newborn, orphaned and wild animals throughout the year.
Project Wildlife is asking residents to donate supplies such as jarred baby food, wild bird seed and canned dog and cat food during the so-called Virtual Baby Shower. According to the Humane Society, Project Wildlife expects to treat more than 12,000 animals throughout the year with the donated supplies.
“Young wild animals rely on Project Wildlife for a second chance, and our baby shower ensures that we have enough supplies to give those animals the care they need to survive,” said Lauren DuBois, Project Wildlife’s director of wildlife rehabilitation. “Each animal plays an important role in making up this ecosystem, so it’s crucial we take care of them.”
Residents can view an Amazon wish list of Project Wildlife’s most needed items at sdhumane.org or projectwildlife.org. Residents can also contact Project Wildlife from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at (619) 299-7012 to learn more about the baby shower.
