Important Bulletin: Hurricane Florence Rescue Effort Update!

On Sunday, September 23, Ted made a second trip to Wilmington to rescue 25 more baby squirrels, bringing the total to 80 squirrels that have come through the doors since the storm ravaged the eastern part of North Carolina. After a 12-hour trip, he brought the babies back to NAWC. Some of the new arrivals were newborns, complete with umbilical cord still attached. NAWC has also been fortunate to receive some donations of food and drinks for our volunteers from Papa Murphy’s Pizza in Greensboro, The Filling Station restaurant in Winston-Salem, and Bojangles in Eden, NC. These donations are much appreciated! Donations of all kinds are still needed, and we are trying to raise $5,000 for the continued expenses for care for the babies, while they are here for several weeks, months, and over the winter.

New squirrel boxes and hiding boxes were built to house the refugee critters. Thanks to a generous donation of wood and materials from Hood Distribution Company and assembly by Jack Mazzuchelli of Jack's Custom Cabinets for making these possible!
