Critter Care managing influx of orphaned bear cubs

We know their hearts are big enough to handle it, but with 25 bear cubs in their care, the grocery budget at Critter Care Wildlife Society may not be.

Big name and national reaching media outlets like Global News have covered the plight facing Critter Care, who doesn’t have a simple explanation for why so many cubs have been found recently. Between Saturday and Monday, six more cubs were admitted – all of whom were underweight. They also came from various locations across the province.

Getting help to Critter Care is pretty easy, though, with this grocery list they posted on their Facebook page:

“We need things like berries, grapes (for our small cubs), apples, pears, melons, broccoli, cauliflower, peanuts (unsalted and still in the shell) – we can also use almonds, pecans, walnuts, and salmon.”

The Fur-Bearers are proud supporters of wildlife rehabilitators and encourage everyone who is able to assist Critter Care or their local rehabber this time of year.

Always call or visit their website first to find out what they’re most in need of (things like towels, blankets, and cleaning supplies, as well as volunteers are common) before visiting/donating.
