Wildlife rehabilitation needs donations of building materials for larger facility
El Paso, TEXAS —
The Second Chance Wildlife Rescue is a rehabilitation of mammals like raccoons and rabbits to every type of bird you've seen fly above in the borderland.
Josie Karam, President of the rescue has been operating from her home for 19 years.
The facility is running on a half acre of land.
Now she and a team of volunteers are working on a new location in Vinton.
It's a seven acre property with ponds and building to remodel to rehabilitation facility.
The goal is to make the new location the largest rehabilitation facility in West Texas.
The rescue would like to upgrade from their three aviaries-- or flight cages to seven including one for raptures like hawks.
At peak the shelter has had a thousand animals.
Karam has tried to retire for the past 3 years, but she says this is a project she must see completed.
Supplies and volunteers to get the facility up and running.
Only then, can it be inspected and get its permit.
Take a look at the wish list!
