“This was such a beautiful experience as it was a win win for everyone,” organizers wrote in a Facebook post. “Thank you to everyone who played, it could be you next time.”

Funds raised are going towards animal care including food, bedding, and medical expenses.

Still, Critter Care is seeking donations as well as animal transport volunteers.

Transporters bring in animals that are already contained – people do not need to worry about catching them, but mus be willing to use their own vehicles.

“We service all of Southern B.C and need drivers in every city,” Critter Care said.

Interested people can reach out to the volunteer coordinator at crittercare9@shaw.ca.

More information and donations can be made at www.crittercarewildlife.org.

Critter Care Wildlife Society specializes in the treatment, care and release of sick, injured and orphaned native mammal species of British Columbia’s Southern and Lower Mainland. They have been based in Langley Township for 30 years.
