Materials Needed for Raptor Enclosures – ASAP!

We’re doing the very best we can to get new enclosures built to expand our educational raptor program this spring — but we urgently need your help! We’re asking for donated materials to build these federally-mandated structures, providing safe and lifelong homes to nonreleasable birds of prey. The sooner we complete these structures, the better!

Locals can help by donating building supplies (especially lumber and chain link fencing), labor (especially experienced framers), or even lunches to feed our construction party.

Supporters from out-of-state can help by sending gift cards to Lowe’s or Home Depot. We appreciate donations of any amount; do you have some gift cards lying around with only a few extra dollars left on them? Send them over to us! Even if it’s only $10.52, or even if you don’t remember what the remaining balance is, we will put it to good use!

If you are able to offer support or have questions about what you can do, please email us at Thank you!!

Happy New Year!

Welcome, 2013! We’ve been eagerly awaiting your arrival!

We have some big plans for growth this year at PAWS. In the past, we’ve just done what we could do with what we’ve had available — but this year, we’re going to push beyond the edges of our comfort zone to accomplish more than we ever have before.

Keep track of the most up-to-date news at our Facebook page, where we’re always posting new intakes, updates on rehabilitating animals, and news on expos and public raptor releases. Thank you for being part of our work!

We wish you all the best in the new year!
