The Fast and the Furriest — Critter Care is holding its annual Christmas shopping days from Dec. 2 to 15 at the rehabilitation centre at 481 216 St. All proceeds from sales of their calendars

Critter Care Christmas sale begins on Dec. 2

Wide array of wild-life themed gift ideas for those hard-to-buy-for people on your list

For the person who has everything or for those on your list who want to support a worthy cause, Critter Care Wildlife Society has the perfect presents.

Go wild this holiday and go shopping at the Critter Care Christmas sale, on from Dec. 2 to Dec. 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day at the rehabilitation centre.

Volunteer elves have been busy making gifts specialized to represent the more than 1,500 injured and orphaned animals staying at Critter Care.

That means there are bear cub mouse pads, Critter Care calendars, ornaments, critter Christmas cards, animal pjs, hoodies, raccoon socks and more.

It has been a busy year for Critter Care, said Gail Martin, founder and operator. With 1,500 mammals, that is an increase of 600 injured or orphaned animals over last year.

They have taken in four bear cubs so far this fall.

“They have slowed  down so they should be into hibernation by the end of December,” said Martin.

“With the loss of habitat, the numbers of admissions continue to grow,” said Martin.   “It is never a slow time for Critter Care as our fall and winter is filled with injured animals.  Our year is busy —  filled with building and repairs. A nice new fence adorns the front of the property.”

Critter Care is a non-profit society that relies on donations and some small government grants to purchase food and special formula for each of the animals, whether it be raccoons, fawns, otters or coyotes.

The public is invited to come out and support the local wildlife centre, located at 481 216 Street. Call 604-530-2054 or visit crittercarewildlife.org to learn more.
