On Saturday you might have seen the post I shared about the kangaroo family we found hit by cars on the freeway? Well, this is where we were travelling to- Dutch Thunder Wildlife Shelter to make a very important and large delivery.
I've been collecting things since January and was due to go there as I always do, during the school holidays. Unfortunately with the virus- I wasn't able to go. BUT, we managed to deliver these donations on Saturday because we learned that they were having trouble getting feed. What a long, amazing day which started with us waking at 5.40 to attend our ANZAC Dawn Service in our driveway. After that, mum told me what she had planned for the day. I was in shock and couldn't believe we were really going! We had packed the car the night before but mum had told me it was because dad was going to take it all to work and have it freighted up on a pallet- NEVER did I think, we would actually be taking it.
It was so amazing to see all the work they have been doing up there. Amazing to see all the koala and kangaroo joeys in care, they have all grown so much since January.
Thank you to Alison from Hadlow & Sons Pet Supplies for helping with the stock feed. We took more than 400kgs of feed up with us. Plus some more went to JABS Joey and Bat Sanctuary and Little Urchins Wildlife Sanctuary.
We also took some toddler beds that we got off the local free sight- these are great for kangaroos to relax on. There was lots of laundry liquid, some tissues, first aid supplies, puppy pads (which they were nearly out of), limited cleaning supplies as they are super hard to get at the moment and some Pamper packs from Pinchapoo that will be passed onto their volunteers as thanks for the work that they do for the shelter and wildlife in the area.
So THANKS again to everyone that supports my work and allows me to make donations like this and support volunteer wildlife carers and rescuers.
See my website for the ways you can help plus I've attached my "Wildlife Pantry Shopping List" if you'd like to help buy items from this.
