Manitoulin Transport Comes to The Rescue of Wildlife RescueManitoulin Transport Comes to The Rescue of Wildlife Rescue
Since January of this year, Manitoulin Transport has been delivering, free of charge, numerous skids of dog food to Wildlife Rescue Centers across Ontario. Wildlife Rescue Centers take in injured and orphaned wild animals and rehabilitate and release them back into the wild. Although licensed by the Ministry of Natural Resources, most Wildlife Rescue Centers are run by volunteers and are completely dependent on the public for support. They do not get support from any level of government.
Food is one of the biggest expenses for most Wildlife Rescue Centers. Several pet food companies donate expired, damaged, or discontinued dry dog food; however, getting the food to Wildlife Rescue Centers across the province has been expensive and at times impractical. Manitoulin Transport has already delivered 51 skids or 25 tons of food and cleaning supplies to 9 Wildlife Rescue Centers in Ontario including Barrie, Peterborough, Ottawa, Thunder Bay, Pembroke, London, Cambridge, St. Catharines, and Huntsville.
"Ontario Wildlife Rescue is doing great work. Their volunteers put their heart and soul into helping wild animals and we wanted to do our part and get involved. Manitoulin Transport is proud to support such an important cause," says Jeff Smith, Vice-Chair at Manitoulin Group of Companies.
Manitoulin Transport’s generous support of Ontario Wildlife Rescue has made a significant difference to the number of injured and orphaned wild animals that have been saved.
