Guilderhaven seeks help for wildlife babies

GUILDERLAND — Once a year, Guilderhaven reaches out to our generous community, asking for assistance in dealing with the avalanche of small, helpless wildlife babies that have come into our care.

I hope everyone had the opportunity to see the fawns and the adorable very wild bobcat babies on our Facebook page. The bobcats have recuperated and moved on toward the end goal of being returned to their natural habitat with minimal contact with people.

We are looking for gift cards from food markets, pet stores, and Tractor Supply. Any type of donation would be greatly appreciated.

Aug. 1 begins our “blue bag” fundraiser through our generous friends at Hannaford Market, the one near Guilderland Town Hall on Route 20. We thank our community for its support of Guilderhaven.
