Wishes you all the
Merriest of Christmases!
and a heartfelt thank you for your support
in our mission of getting wildlife back into the wild.
Badger release mid-Oct. 2018
Rescued downtown Boise early September with shoulder wound, worn out and thin.
We hope 2019 brings peace and health to all sentient beings!
The Treasure Valley’s tremendous growth continues to bring us more injured, orphaned and displaced wildlife annually. We deeply appreciate your continued assistance in our quest to get wildlife back where they belong and safe from urban and rural sprawl. Aside from rehab, AIDA spends thousands of hours each year educating the public in how to have a peaceful co-existence with those whom we share this beautiful planet. We couldn’t possibly maintain our objective without the generosity of YOU, our supporters for the past 31 years.
The wildlife thanks you as do we…AIDA couldn’t exist without you. We receive no city, county, state or federal funding. We operate solely on a few grants and donations. We hope to continue for another 31 years and beyond. A million thank yous!
On behalf of Animals In Distress Association/Ruth Melichar Bird Center (AIDA), thank you for caring about Idaho’s wildlife.
Mary Weaver rehabs baby raccoons in Eastern Idaho. She chose to celebrate her birthday this year by collecting donations for Animals In Distress Assn. Her generous efforts brought in $350 for the animals. Thank you Mary for your thoughtful gift!
