AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) – It takes money to rescue and care for sick and injured wildlife and provide them with a temporary home.
Urban Wildlife Rehabilitation of Springfield raised money on Sunday afternoon with a skating party at the Mullins Center on the campus of the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.
For years, Dee Howe’s Springfield home has been a sanctuary for ailing and orphaned wildlife.
“They all have a job to do, they eat mice, they try to keep the earth clean and people are really doing bad things to them,” said Howe.
Once the animals her organization cares for are well enough, they’re released back into the wild.
