HAWKE Spring Open House set for December 7th, 2014, 2014

HAWKE wants to continue to be there to take your calls when injured wild animals need help. HAWKE needs funds to feed and provide care for orphaned wild birds, mammals, and reptiles. We will be opening our doors for our annual Spring Members-Only Open House under the big oaks at the HAWKE rehabilitation facility in Elkton, FL. The festivities begin on Sunday, April 27 at 1:00 p.m. and continue to 4:00 p.m., featuring tours of the rehabilitation facility, hospital room, ICU unit, feed room, and large wildlife enclosures both inside and outside the center. HAWKE officers, members, and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about the animals, the facility, and opportunities for volunteering to help support the mission of the Humane Association of Wildlife Care and Education.

DSC 0033HAWKE is celebrating 27 years of helping wildlife have a second chance, thanks to generous donations from the community and from HAWKE members. The association provides two open house events per year as a thank-you and so you can see where your funds are going. At the open house, members can visit the hummingbird garden and water turtle pond, our huge land turtle habitat, and can see our resident bobcat, Cherokee, in her new habitat. HAWKE's educational and non-releasable animals and education birds of prey will be on display, but patients being rehabilitated will not be on view. Meet our owls, hawks, Peregrine falcon, swallow-tailed kite, playful river otters, and our other Un releasable "adoptable" critters. Because HAWKE does not receive state or federal support and depends entirely on donations of time, material, and funds, events such as these help us raise funds, raise awareness of the material needs of the facility, and introduce available volunteer opportunities.

All new and current members are invited to attend, and major membership donors ($500 and up) can bring 2 guests. Large donors can also request another day to visit, People who donate services to HAWKE such as newsletter ads, St Johns Vets , volunteers can email This email address is being protected from spambots.
