Sooooooo nice to once again be able to pack supplies for some shelters. Its really hard at the moment collecting items and even harder, getting them to shelters.
Yesterday I was able to not only see an amazing lady that I met a couple of year ago, Sally Forsyth BUT, I also got to meet Shelly from Hamilton Wildlife Shelter. They were taking an injured yellow tail black cockatoo to Healesville Sanctuary for treatment. When we heard they were coming this way, we asked if they could stop in and we quickly gathered and sourced some supplies!! They literally were driving right past my house so it was a great opportunity to get some supplies to the South-West of Victoria with their help.
They took all these supplies back with them- Sally's car was FULL!!! They were shocked and we kind of laughed, that's what mum's car normally looks like when we do deliveries lol. It was a 8.5hr round trip for them in one day! Including a 3.5hr drive back to Hamilton from our place. They will be delivering these supplies to the amazing Pam from Wildwood Wildlife Shelter - Glenthompson who Sally introduced me to a couple of years ago along with Sean who's in Timboon who we also met through Sally. Some supplies also went to Shelly Hamilton Wildlife Shelter and they also stopped in Ballarat on their way home and gave some to Sharon at Possum Paws Wildlife Shelter.
A BIG-HUGE Thank you to Alison from Hadlow & Sons Pet Supplies for helping me with the supply of Micro Barley. She is also helping me with an order I am collecting at the end of the week, to go to 3 other shelters. I have a few more things I’m putting together to go up to a rural shelter but once that donation goes out, my “wildlife pantry” will be empty ☹️ As too my bank account!
Thank you to Pinchapoo for the pamper packs. We gave Sally and Shelly a pack each, plus packed one specially for Pam Wildwood Wildlife Shelter - Glenthompson. Plus we gave them an additional 12 packs to distribute to people in their area. We know they gave some to Sharon in Bendigo- she was overwhelmed by them. They are having a big impact on people so thank you Pinchapoo!!
And Thankyou to Paula from Little Urchins Wildlife Sanctuary who dropped off a box of supplies for Pam too.
Shopping is obviously hard at the moment for everyone, but I’ll keep doing what I can to get the best deals and products that are needed by shelters and then get it to them! We had to go to 2 local supermarkets just to get two bottle of multipurpose spray. Our local large store had none and the other smaller store only had 2. Supplies are really hard to get so if you can help physically with any, it would be great. They can be left in the yellow bins at 16 Parook Court, Diamond Creek. Donations can be made to my bank account too.
Thank you to everyone that supports my work and enables donations like these! Our wildlife carers and rescuers really, really appreciate it.
