ANIMALS IN DISTRESS ASSOCIATION/RUTH MELICHAR BIRD CENTER
WISHES YOU AND YOURS THE
MERRY, MERRIEST OF CHRISTMASES
AND A GREAT 2017!
2016 was a very busy year for AIDA. Due to late season arrivals, several species are being held over the winter for a spring release: bats, cottontails, foxes, raccoons, skunks and squirrels.
Thank you for your continued support of Idaho’s injured and orphaned wildlife. Your donations are monumental to our mission.
100ADA, a new non-profit in Ada County is a ‘giving circle’ created by community-minded professionals.
They have chosen us, Animals In Distress Association (AIDA) to be one of five nominated local non-profits to compete for a cash donation. This September will be their ‘Autumn Giving Event’ in which we will participate.
It will be Thursday, September 22, 2016 from 6-8 pm at Crane Creek Country Club, 500 W. Curling Drive, Boise
Please visit their website to learn about this new non-profit that have banded like minded community members together to help other Ada County non-profits.
Please keep your fingers crossed for Animals In Distress Association.
May the New Year bring a kinder more forgiving world
for all creatures great and small.
This newborn fawn was picked up at Katherine Albertson Park by caring individuals who thought she was orphaned. AIDA took her back to the park early evening and watched from afar until mom came back and the two were reunited.
Thank you to all our wonderful donors, we couldn’t do it without you!
Your year-end tax-deductible gift will help us to continue to care for all animals, feathered or furred, throughout the coming year. Donations may be made through PayPal* or mailed to AIDA, P. O. Box 7263, Boise, Idaho 83707

In 2012, Shydyn’s only wish for his 9th birthday was to receive “money for the animals” from the 35 guests attending his party. With family and friends supporting his generous wish, Shydyn was pleased to present AIDA with the amazing sum of $815.00. What a precious gift. Shydyn, you’re an angel!
