EXPENSES: As with any non-profit rescue expenses are enormous!! As of 6/1/21 we have had two with large vet bills which combined was over $1,100.00. One female skunk that was spayed had to keep returning to the vet to have her spay incision repaired because she kept chewing it open. The vet finally had to fashion a pair of pants for her out of the sticky vet wrap tape and made it thick enough so she couldn't chew it off. She is finally healed. One male skunk sustained an injury to his tail which became infected and a portion of it had to be amputed. He is well on the mend. Besides the these unusual emergencies, we have the normal expenses of feeding, vaccinating, spaying/neutering, and worming the rescue skunks plus have to purchase supplies like paper towels, disinfecting solutions, etc.
By donating you will be making a life saving impact on a skunk. Any consideration in donating to the skunks in need is greatly appreciated.
