Clinic Update

The ward is fairly quiet this week. We tend to see fewer patients when it's cold, and the last week has been no exception. We do have Freida, a red-eared slider who will be spending the rest of the winter in the ward, a great horned owl, a morning dove, and Neil, an American Crow with a fractured left metacarpal.

Our first WMC executive board meeting of the new year is this evening, and the new members will be taking over their positions. The volunteers who will be leaving their executive positions tonight have done a lot of great work for the clinic over the last year, and the board will definitely miss them!

Back from Break

All of the clinic volunteers are back from winter break, so activity in the ward has picked up this week. We are also getting ready for our annual fundraiser, Doodle for Wildlife. A significant portion of the WMC's budget is raised at Doodle very year. The planning for this year's event has already been going on for months but has now picked up after break. The Doodle website is active and you can check it out here. Some awesome doodles have already arrived, and all the teams are out gathering donations for the auction. We hope you will consider donating an item for our auction or joining us for a great evening on Saturday, March 7th!
