A huge Thank You to Wires for supporting and funding Hunter Wildlife Rescue with food for our fauna in care which will also help our carers whom work so hard caring for the fauna. The funding will now allow us to continue the food bank free still to all our approved fauna carers. Wires have donated $12,000 to go towards a WILDIFE FOOD account to be set up so HWR can purchase fauna food through Newcraft a fauna food suppler in Sydney. Also Wires have nominated and were successful in getting 5 Woolworths stores throughout the Hunter to supply free fruit , veggies and meat to help feed the fauna in care with HWR. This is been done under Wires National Food Grant project and we wish to thank Wires for their support and help and to say how grateful we are receiving this funding and support.
