Chintimini News and Happenings 
CHINTIMINI NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!
Photo by Anibal Ortiz, Mid-Valley Media  
Every year at Chintimini, the summer months wreak havoc on both our staff and budget. It is normal for this time of year - orphaned babies being the biggest cause. However this year is a different story. The Willamette Wildlife Center in Eugene closed last month, meaning injured and orphaned animals in the southern Willamette Valley now come to us, in addition to our normal influx of patients. While we anticipate the busy season each year, the circumstances are even more dire right now.

The Gazette-Times visited Chintimini recently to talk to our staff and help raise awareness about how busy Chintimini Wildlife Center is at the moment! You can check out the article here

We are so grateful to have the support of our community. Thank you for inspiring us when we need it most.


You are a hero to Oregon's wildlife.

We hope you'll consider showing your support today. Click here to donate or volunteer. Any help is appreciated!

LOCAL BUSINESS GIVES BACK

Orangetheory Fitness Corvallis raised funds for Chintimini Wildlife Center during their Summer Strong Challenge in June. The OTF community came together to raise $950.00! 
NOTABLE JUNE PATIENTS
Juvenile Raccoons - These little guys were orphaned, but are being cared for in the clinic until they can be released back into the wild on their own!

Olive-sided Flycatcher - Recovered in our clinic and was released a few weeks ago after a collision with a window.


Western Screech Owl - He was found dangling by a fishing hook and line over the river last week. He is making a great recovery in our ICU!

Juvenile Cliff Swallow - After being orphaned, this patient and numerous others will stay at our clinic until they are old enough to be released. These cool insectivores are tong fed a varied insect diet with avian supplements and require constant feeding from sunup to sundown!

We haven't yet reached our goal for surgery costs - you can still help! This Bald Eagle is still needing extensive care every day at our clinic. Any donation helps to offset the cost of surgery and his continued care at Chintimini. Donate HERE
A BIG THANKS TO JUBILATE! 
We had a wonderful evening with local women’s choir Jubilate, who performed a benefit concert for the center in the Chintimini Woods on June 21. 
We hope our guests enjoyed the evening as much as we did, and that we can continue to partner on this event for years to come.

Special thanks to Betty Busch, Jubilate! Artistic Director & Conductor, and Chintimini volunteer, without whom this partnership may never have been born.
