A lot has happened this year - and we've delighted in sharing our exciting and meaningful work with you in this newsletter. Together, we've overseen patients recover and be released back into their natural habitat. We've gotten up-close and personal with our Raptor Ambassadors to help learners of all ages understand how to minimize the impacts they have on wildlife. And we've helped to mold the minds of the next generation, to ensure that long after we're gone, our wild neighbors will continue to be supported by compassionate humans.

You are part of an amazing community of animal lovers. From the hiker who stumbles upon a frightened, injured animal; to the volunteer diligently cleaning cages; to the surgeon who spends hours working to repair a delicate wing. Together, they step up to form the backbone that allows us to fulfill our mission.

But, just as important are the donors that serve as our lifeblood. Your support fuels each and every action we take, and it enables us to be open 365 days a year to serve our local wildlife. Donate today, and your financial support will provide the food, shelter, and medicine needed to serve another year's worth of wildlife patients. You can give online with the link at the bottom of this email.

To those who have already donated this year (and especially to those who donate monthly), thank you. And to those who will donate before the end of the year, thank you, too. Thank you for your commitment to local wildlife. You inspire me, and all of us here at Chintimini Wildlife Center, to give these animals the best care possible. Even though the work is challenging, each of us in the Chintimini community finds the motivation we need to step up for wildlife because we are surrounded by people like you who step up with us.
From myself, and everyone here at Chintimini, we wish you a wonderful holiday season,
Sarah Spangler
Associate Director
