Newest member of the family!

Goings-on at Maypop Wildlife Rescue:1. Maypop sends her greetings to all of our new followers with a foot-wave! Welcome, everyone! We’re so glad you are here :D2. I will be contacting the good folks who took in the Turkey Vulture to find out how he is doing today! 3. Our local Spay Today has agreed to help us get all of our backyard kitties spayed and neutered! Our mama cat, Astrid, and one of her babies, Nyx, are there today. Unfortunately, they can only do 2 cats at a time, so this is going to be a pretty lengthy process. 4. I was contacted by a woman yesterday who has a pet bunny she needs to surrender. Apparently the bunny gives her terrible allergies that have been bad enough to make her sick. She’s had him for a year and loves him dearly but just can’t keep him anymore. She’s been trying to re-home him for weeks but hasn’t found anyone to take him. She finally contacted us and asked if we’d be willing. We said yes! He will be arriving tomorrow, so prepare yourselves for pics later tomorrow! 5. Thanks to the wonderful people who have donated to our rescue in the last few days, we were not only able to refill our gas tank after transporting the Turkey Vulture, but we’ve also been able to order a big cage for when our squirrelies get older! We are super excited about that. Not only because we got it on a crazy-good sale on Amazon, but also because it was bought with your donations! Honestly, when we took in the squirrels we had no idea how we’d rustle up the funds to purchase a cage they will need in a just a couple weeks. You guys made this possible! I will post about it when it arrives. I can’t wait!

Hey everyone. I just got this vulture in. Haven’t done an exam on him yet (waiting on an extra pair of hands) but it sounds like he was grounded in a neighborhood in Greenville for about 5 days. He will most likely require care from someone who knows more about vultures. The problem is, we cannot afford to transport this guy right now. We need help! Many of you know that we do this work voluntarily and pay for everything out of pocket. If you can, please consider donating to our rescue! This vulture really needs your help! You can donate any amount of money through Paypal, to the email address: roverage@hotmail.com!

If all of my followers donated just 50 cents it would be more than enough to pay for this bird to get the help he needs! Please donate! 

Thank you to everyone who reblogged!

Unfortunately we have still only received $3 to help this guy out!

This is not enough to get the vulture the care he needs! Please help!

I was finally able to do an examination on him and discovered a compound fracture in his left wing elbow joint. This is a serious injury - especially since it is 5 days old now, and he is severely emaciated because of it!

Listen guys, I know it isn’t the usual ‘cute’ animal that is fun to reblog and support. Like a kitten or a dog. But every animal deserves a happy, healthy live. this guy is suffering with pain and starvation and he needs help.

Reblog and donate if you can. It won’t even take that much.

Hey everyone! For those of you who have not seen my page recently, we were able to get TV to more capable hands this afternoon! 
Thank you so much to everyone who donated to this cause! We honestly can’t believe the response we have gotten, and the money we have received vastly exceeds our expectations! :D Thank you to everyone who donated and/or reblogged this message! We couldn’t have done this without you! 
   Please know that all the extra money we have received will still be going into the care of animals! We are still new to the Wildlife Rehabilitation world and have not received many donations at all in our months of doing this work! TV was the third bird we have transported in the last 6 weeks, and money has been very tight as a result. Everything we have had to purchase for the animals in the last few months has come right out of our own pockets. 
   After I dropped off the Turkey Vulture, I drove another ten miles or so to pick up a batch of baby squirrels who need help. This is our first family of squirrels and there are a number of things we will need to purchase as they grow, including a large ferret cage for them to play in when they get older. Because of you all, this is now achievable!  
  So, once again, a HUGE HUGE THANK YOU to everyone! We can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate what you have done :)

Hey everyone! Please read and reblog my post about the Turkey Vulture! I know you may not be a wildlife blog, and it might look ugly on your dash, but this wild animal really needs your help!
