What’s cuter than a raccoon in a plastic wading pool? Four raccoons in a plastic wading pool! No, make that five … no, now that’s six … let’s just say there’s a lot of raccoons in this pool, and leave it at that.
Take a look for yourself in the video below, and then make sure to read the rest of this post. These Boulder raccoons (74 in all, if you thrive on specificity like I do) need your help.
The good folks at Boulder-area Greenwood WildLife Rehabilitation Center have the story on the cuteness, and it’s not all rainbows and unicorns (just raccoons and their unique needs):
The 74 orphaned raccoons under Greenwood’s care are weaned and have been moved to our outdoor enclosures. We need your help to raise $5,000 to upgrade their caging so they can grow bigger and stronger until they are released back into the wild this fall. Each enclosure needs special roofing that will allow them to stay dry and warm but still be exposed to nature. We need to add planks and logs across their cages so they can work on their balance and exercise their active and curious minds. Pools will allow them to splash and play, as only raccoons can do!
Will you please help us make these improvements to give our orphans the best possible chance to thrive when they are set free? Your generous contribution of $10, $25, $50, $100 or more can make this happen. Click here to donate online or send a check to PO Box 18987, Boulder, CO 80308.
Okay people, let’s get this done. Ever since we here at Your Boulder “adopted” Greenwood as our pet non-profit (so to speak), we’ve been bragging about how generous you all are. Let’s show them.
If we all just dig up just $5 or $10, we can meet the $5,000 funding goal in no time and have these fuzzy Boulder critters properly sheltered and returned to the wild happy and healthy. Let’s get it done — click here to donate online today, and thank you!
