AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) – Skating party Sunday afternoon at the Umass Mullins center could make quite a difference in the survival of some small wild animals.
Supporters of the work of Urban Wildlife in Springfield took to the ice to raise money for the basic necessities to restore the creatures to good health and return them to the wild.
Samantha Kroll, an Urban Wildlife volunteer told 22News, “It’s a fundraiser for the upcoming baby season. It stars is March or April, but because of the warm weather we may start getting them this month.”
Andrew Bellak said, “We love animals, we’ve adopted animals, so we’re happy to support the organization.”
For many years, with the help of volunteers, Urban Wildlife has maintained a makeshift hospital for small wild animals who need to be cared for.
