Fundraisers are an important way that organizations raise cash for what they do. One group I like to follow has a fundraiser coming up and it has got to be the coldest fundraiser I know.

Polar Plunges seem like a simple chilly moment in time compared to Friends of the Feathered and Furry Wildlife Center's  (FFFWC) Annual "Freeze Your Butt off Bake Sale". This event is held annually at a Sunoco that is close to the FFFWC.

Bake Sale Benefits the Friends of the Feathered and Furry Wildlife Center

This year's "Freeze Your Butt Off Bake Sale"  is on the calendar for this Sunday, February 11th starting at 10 AM. As much as they need customers that day to buy baked goods they also need people who know how to bake stuff.

They are hoping to get Cookies, Bread, Cakes and Cupcakes. All the money will go to assisting animals at the FFFWC. If you can bake, the FFFWC is asking for you to text or call Dave at (518) 965-1864. Every cookie they get to sell means more TLC for Hudosn Valley wildlife in their care.

Whether they are rehabbing an eagle from a car accident, rescuing an orphan bear, or treating many different animals who have been exposed to lead in the environment the FFFWC is a commitment to Letting Wild Be Wild and is here to help. Numerous animals have come through the FFFWC and have gone on to be returned to the wild.

The Hudson Valley's Coldest Bake Sale is This Weekend

If you can bake great please help. If you are the type that eats desserts more than you make make desserts be sure to stop by 6360 Main Street in Tannersville this Sunday starting at 10 AM. Buying the treats is as important as making them to sell.

Wild Animals in Rehab

When we see an animal that has been hurt or is in distress it is in our nature to want to help but the reality is we need to leave it to the professional. Our job is to report it so that trained people can step in to assist the animal that needs help. Luckily there are many Animal Rehabilitators in the Hudson Valley who are good at what they do.
