Critter Care open house draws 6,200
Raccoons and skunks and river otters – oh my!
About 6,200 people came from as far as Chilliwack and North Vancouver to Critter Care Wildlife Society's annual open house, held July 14 and 15.
The event included rare behind-the-scenes tours of the south Langley orphaned wildlife rehabilitation centre, a barbecue and a First Nations storyteller.
Funds raised will help purchase such necessities as specialized baby formula for the critters that arrive for care.
Currently, those charges include about 90 raccoons, a handful of young river otters, fawns and baby skunks.
Critter Care relies solely on donations and the dedicated work of international interns to keep operations running.
