AIDA aids 6 immigrant Opossums rescued in Idaho. The mother and 4 siblings were killed by a car, and the surviving infants were raised and released last fall in western Washington

Opossums – Weaning
Opossums – Prior to Release

On the first Earth Day, in 1970, a cartoon poster appeared at rallies in all 50 states. It showed a rueful (Pogo) opossum picking up papers, bottles, cans, wrappers—the detritus of modern life. Superimposed on the image were the words.

That poster has stayed in print for more than four decades and remains as pertinent now as on the day it was created by Walt Kelly. At his zenith, from about 1950 to 1970, Kelly was the most popular cartoonist in America. 

AIDA THANKS LESLIE JACOBS!

For the second consecutive year, AIDA’s good friend, Leslie Jacobs, has honored us with a post on Facebook requesting donations for her birthday be made to Animals In Distress.  This year we received her amazing gift of $336.00.  What wonderful friends she must have gracing her with so much love.  
Thank you once again, Leslie,  for your generosity.

A GREAT BIG THANK YOU

Animals In Distress Assn. and the Ruth Melichar Bird Center want to sincerely thank all of their supporters during our Idaho Gives Campaign as well as those friends who have given for so many years, some monthly and others occasionally. Without the help of our financial supporters and those who help us physically by volunteering at The Ruth Melichar Bird Center, caring for orphaned squirrels, picking up and delivering injured birds and mammals, (and the list goes on and on), we wouldn’t be able to continue caring for Idaho’s wildlife.
