Go wild when Christmas shopping

Critter Care rehabilitation centre is hosting its annual Christmas shopping spree with proceeds to feed hungry wildlife

Go wild this Christmas and help out injured and orphaned B.C. wildlife at the same time.

Langley’s Critter Care Wildlife Society is holding its annual shopping spree inside their education centre, offering tons of great Christmas gift ideas. There are plenty of new must-haves like the bear head slippers ($10) and mittens that look like real bear paws.

Avoid the crowds, Critter Care is located at 481 216 St., and will be open Dec. 1 to 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There are also paw print umbrellas, animal socks, hoodies and calendars showing all this year’s animals that have been rescued, from fawns and a baby coyote to a flying squirrel baby, bear cubs and river otter.

“We have 12 cubs with us right now,” said Critter Care founder Gayle Martin.

Also staying over winter is three river otters and 30 raccoon babies.

All the proceeds from the Christmas shopping help feed the hungry animals through winter.

Critter Care rescues orphaned B.C. wildlife and rehabilitates them, returning them back to the wild when they are ready.

The non-profit society relies on donations and the caring of the community to keep them up and running. For more information call 604-530-2064.
