Critter Care Wildlife Society put out the call for TP and paper towels and the community answered the call in droves at McBurney Coffee House last weekend.
Critter Care volunteers made a plea last week in the Langley Times for help with the overwhelming amount of babies they have had come in to the rehabilitation centre.
With babies, “what goes in must come out,” said long time volunteer Eleanor Wells who organized the drive. That means the non-profit group was in need of toilet paper, tissues and paper towels.
“Gail Martin, founder/executive director of Critter Care Wildlife Society would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to community that made the TP and Tissue Drive on June 2 and 3 such a big success,” said Winona Reinsma, Critter Care Society’s vice president.
They had so many donations they filled one large truck and a car.
“We met so many great people and they just kept bringing donations,” said Reinsma.
She also said McBurney Coffee and Tea House was very good to them.
“We wanted to thank them for allowing us to use their premises as a drop off area. The staff and owner warmly welcomed and invited us back next year.”
Spring means many babies are being born in the wild and Critter Care is busy bottle feeding many injured and orphaned little ones, from raccoons, marmots and fawns, to sea otters, opossums and coyotes.
They have five bears in their care from last year that are ready to be re-released back into the wild.
