This Saturday at the grand re-opening of the Wild Bird Store in Tucson located at 3160 E. Ft. Lowell, you can not only meet the wonderful volunteers of the Tucson Wildlife Center but you can make the acquaintance of Bubba the Owl and buy a beautiful bracelet to benefit TWC.

They will be on hand informing customers about all their wildlife good deeds and selling the bracelets which cost $20/each. The entire $20 goes directly to TWC.

Check it out!

If you cannot make it to the Wild Bird Store, you can buy bracelets all month at Silver Sea Jewelry, 330 N. 4th Avenue or buy them online (add $4 S&H).

Just buy, buy, buy to benefit injured bobcats, javelinas, owls, pelicans, and wildlife in need.  Thank you

happy endings

Nikko and foster bobcat mom

Nikko’s mother selected a secluded spot at a school yard for her den. Although school was out for the summer, leaving plenty of time for the family to move on, caretakers wanted them removed. Trappers were called in and the three were brought to the Tucson Wildlife Center to prepare them for a release in a safe location.

Unfortunately, Nikko’s mother was so stressed by the trapping that she rejected her cubs. Nikko’s sibling did not survive. Although Nikko was being bottle fed around the clock, his only hope was foster bobcat mom, Ruby.

You must watch the heart-tugging video to see what happened next.

Then may we suggest that you buy a bracelet or three to support Tucson Wildlife Center. They work so hard to protect the critters large and small.  you can buy one of a kind beautiful handmade bracelets made with donated beads at Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue in Tucson’s 4th Avenue District. (520.624.9954)

Or you can buy bracelets online via Etsy.com (add $4 S&H)  All bracelets cost $20 and the entire $20 goes to the Tucson Wildlife Center.  Wild bracelet supports Tucson Wildlife Center

Tucson Greyhound: Jett’s Gotcha Day 2011/08/14

The following is written by Jett Greyhound, the Jett-setter

Friday – August 12 – was my “gotcha” day.  I’m not sure what that means but my human Karyn seemed all excited about it when she picked me up at The Greyt Escape. I didn’t get any presents or  special treats though. She kept saying happy happy “gotcha, gotcha, gotcha.”

I have been living in this crazy household for one year and it sure beats a crate at the dog track.

I can sleep all day and I get to eat really good food and treats.

My human loves on me and this house is my bed.  I sleep on the dog beds, the human bed, the sofa, and the bed on the patio.  It’s all mine but sometimes I share.

Not only do I get two-legged visitors but lots of four-legged visitors.

My favorite four-legged visitor is Donut. She is sweet. We love on each other and sometimes she lays on my dog bed while I’m on it too!  I like Donut so much that sometimes she lays on the human bed with Karyn and there’s no space for me. That’s okay as I lay nearby. I am a gentleman.

Freckled Friends - Jett & Donut

Donut and her human and me and my human take long walks and hang out. Donut is sweet. Once she visited for four days without her human and life was just about perfect.

Another friend is Carter.  He came last year before he got adopted and he was a cool dude.  Then he got lost and my human was out of her mind looking for him. (She didn’t lose him.)   Then he got found and came to visit with his human. It was good to see him.  Then he just came again for 12 days to stay with us. We are good buddies. My human loves Carter very much. He loves to play with my toys and so I let him.

A few weeks ago this all white dude named Petey stayed here. He was just off the dog track and being neutered. He’s all white with some freckles. We love freckles. Petey was fun. My human fell in love with Petey or so she said. I heard he got adopted by a nice family and that makes me happy.

Go Petey!

Then there is Saffron. Her human and my human are friends too. Saffron is a bit of an older woman but very kind. I went to visit her at her new house which is closer to mine so I’m sure we will become better pals.

Seductive Saffron

One day I went to visit someone who had an older greyhound named Harmony (she flirted with me) and a small dog Mimzy who was the boss of us all.  And on two separate occasions other dogs stayed a short while – Torque who marked everything and  Daisy who growled at me.

So as you can see I am a popular boy dog and have friends too.

Life is good. I hope that every greyhound dog has the chance to live a wonderful life like me.  And happy “gotcha” to you too.

injured javelina rehabilitated

Fundraising Bracelets for Tucson Wildlife Center

During the month of August, Beading Divas to the Rescue is proud to sell bracelets to help raise funds for Tucson Wildlife Center.

Sam the javelina was hit by a car in the Sam Hughes area of Tucson. Dr. Bill did surgery on Sam’s leg, and applied a cast. Sam’s head wound and leg have healed, and his cast has been removed. Sam has been integrated into a new herd and the herd will be released to a safe location.

In 1998, Lisa Bates rescued an injured raccoon and soon found that there were no services to rehabilitate it. Thus, the Tucson Wildlife Center was born.

The Tucson Wildlife Center became a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization  in 2000 and is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of injured and orphaned wild animals throughout southern Arizona.

You can buy one-of-kind bracelets made with donated beads at Silver Sea Jewelry, 330 N. 4th Ave., 520.624.9954 in the 4th Avenue Shopping District. You can also buy them online via Etsy. Bracelets cost $20 (plus $4 S&H). One size fits most for easy on and off.
