    Thanks to Jessica Patterson at the Metro News for writing this article featuring a patient of ours with the important reminder that litter harms wildlife.

    Trash is harmful to wildlife!

    Please remember that litter is harmful to our wildlife and environment.
    This little skunk came to us after being found stuck in the plastic lid of a slurpee cup. As you can see he sustained a large wound that completely surrounds his neck and right shoulder. Country Hills Veterinary Clinic was kind enough to provide radiographs for him. Once he is strong enough, surgery will be performed by our veterinary team to repair the extensive wounds. He will require intensive care over the next several weeks but we are cautiously optimistic that he will recover.
    At CWRS we think wildlife deserve high quality veterinary care. The only way we can continue to provide this to our wildlife patients is through donations from the public. Please consider making a donation so we can continue to provide the care that our injured wildlife patients need. If you would like to specifically donate to the care of this skunk, please contact us directly (403-266-2282).
    Please ‘Share’ this post on Facebook so we can reach more people about this important message.
    Thank-you for your continued support of CWRS!

    Thank-you to our amazing casino volunteers!

    CWRS would like to extend a heart-felt thanks to all our wonderful volunteers who made our 2014 casino such a success! The casino is our largest single fund-raising event and provides much needed funds that help cover operating costs at the center. To fulfill all the casino positions over two days takes a large community effort and we were blown away by the dedication and support that our volunteers, members and community showed. Many of you took more than one shift to help cover last minute cancellations and for that we are very grateful. This casino would not be possible without the support of our tireless volunteers. Through you, we are able to continue our mission to help rescue and rehabilitate orphaned and injured wildlife. Thank-you, thank-you!
