On October 1, the West Sound Wildlife Shelter (WSWS) will host the Call to the Wild Gala Auction at Kiana Lodge in Poulsbo. This is the 18th annual event and the funds raised provide lifesaving services, including veterinary and rehabilitation care to over 1,800 wildlife patients every year. The shelter is proudly celebrating its 30-year anniversary of caring for wildlife!
WSWS is the Kitsap Peninsula’s only wildlife rehabilitation hospital and also provides human/wildlife conflict resolution services. The shelter responds to over 7,000 phone calls annually, 365 days a year!
Prior to the school closures during the COVID pandemic, WSWS reached over 15,000 local school-aged children annually through live animal education programs. This powerful and long-lasting enrichment offers students an up-close glimpse into the lives of wild animals. WSWS is looking forward to heading back to the classrooms!
“We thank Puget Sound Energy for the support of the Call to the Wild Gala Auction, as it is our most important fundraiser of the year, providing the funding for a large percentage of the Shelter’s annual operating budget,” noted Lisa Horn, Executive Director.
