Calendar sales help baby animals

Critter Care also has a wish list of items donors can buy.

Meet the climbing star of Critter Care's 2012 calendar.

Looking for that perfect gift for that animal lover in your life?

Langley-based Critter Care Wildlife Society’s 2012 calendar is now available.

The new edition features some of the baby animals rescued, raised and released by the organization this year, along with fun facts about British Columbia’s wildlife.

The society cares for sick, injured or orphaned animals and returns them to the wild. The facility operates entirely on donations.

Call 604-530 2054 or email or stop by in person to place your order. Critter Care is located at 481 216 Street, Langley.

Proceeds help support the care and rehabilitation of orphaned mammals from B.C.’s south coast and Lower Mainland.

Buying a calendar isn’t the only way to help out at this time of year.

The society hosts its annual shopping spree Dec. 5 to 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Along with calendars, there are Christmas cards, note pads, sweatshirts and other items for sale. Note: The facility is not open for public viewing. You can also shop online at

You can also sponsor an injured or orphaned animal, from a tiny chipmunk to a beaver, fawn, coyote or bobcat.

Critter Care is one of only four bear rehab facilities in the province.

A recent arrival is Jeannette, a bear cub from Whistler. Her mom Jeannie, a local icon in the resort municipality, sadly had to be shot by conservation officers this fall.

Three little bear cubs Rose, Kira and Kaymona arrived Oct. 12, after two of the cubs were trapped inside a dumpster at a school in Coquitlam.

Zoltan the marmot hails from Home Depot in Surrey, where he was running around in the garden centre, and Jasper and Lil are two raccoons found in a plastic bag dumped outside a Vancouver restaurant.

Cash donations are also welcome, along with donations of animal food, household items, yard supplies and miscellaneous items. See for more information.
