Our volunteer, Cathy, has launched the “Fill the Barn” campaign via Canada Helps to raise funds to expand our facility to accommodate larger numbers of animals.  From turtles in the pond to bear cubs in the pasture to eagles on the roof, each animal you symbolically “adopt” will help us to help real animals at Turtle Pond Wildlife Centre!  Find all the details, and donate to that campaign here.

Our online auction is back in 2021!

Last year's popular online silent auction was a great little fundraiser for us. It's scheduled for April 24th to May 1st. Donations of items to include in the auction are appreciated.  Gift cards, outdoor items for spring/summer, certificates for personal services, flowers, and gifts of food baskets (non-perishable) or restaurant or gas gift cards are always popular. Maybe you received a gift that you're not going to use. Pass it on to us to auction off for a good cause! With Mother's Day around the corner, items for moms would be perfect! The deadline to donate is March 31st, 2021.
