A.R.K. to train volunteers

A.R.K. (Association to Rescue Kritters) is once again preparing for wildlife babies and could use your help.

In the next few weeks, baby bunnies, squirrels, raccoons, fawns and birds will arrive at A.R.K. by people that find them in need of help.

To be sure that there are enough people available to help them, A.R.K. will begin new volunteer training classes on April 22 and 29 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Backus Township Hall, 3888 S. Maple Valley Rd.(F-97) St. Helen, which is located next door to the A.R.K.

Training classes are open to anyone interested in helping wildlife be able to return to the wild. Classes will give anyone interested in working "hands on" with baby animals the training they will need to be able to feed and care for the injured and orphaned kritters. A.R.K. is a 100% volunteer based organization and is funded 100% by donations and grants. It is an opportunity to work hands on with animals that can only be cared for by licensed wildlife rehabilitators, and help them grow, thrive and be released.

If you are interested in attending, or have questions, call (989) 389-3305.
