Manitoulin Transport to The Rescue of Ottawa Wildlife CenterManitoulin Transport to The Rescue of Ottawa Wildlife Center
Manitoulin Transport delivered to Ottawa Valley Wild Bird Care Center three skids of donated disinfectant and supplies free of charge . Terminal staff of Manitoulin Transport also gave Ottawa Valley Bird Care a cheque for $2500 to help support the Center in saving injured or orphaned wild birds . 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 Ottawa, Barrie, Peterborough, 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.
