Every year many orphaned babies find their way to wildlife rehabilitation facilities everywhere. But not all were truly orphaned. Kind-hearted people thought they were. I'm going to tell you a few things that may help you to know when they need your help or not. Because their moms are the only moms they should have.

Last year's Furry Friends 5K in Bolton was a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a fun day that helped raise much needed funds for our orphaned and injured wildlife at Procyon Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Centre.

There will be three dates for the Furry Friends 5K event in which you can participate!

• Sun June 2 - Oshawa Furry Friends 5K

• Sun June 9 - Caledon* Furry Friends 5K Sat

• October 5 - Burlington Furry Friends 5K

Go to https://furryfriends5k.ca/ to register! 

* Please note that the Caledon date is the one that will have a PROCYON team and we will keep you posted on the details as we get closer to the June 9th event.

We hope you will be able to participate in one of these events and hopefully we will manage to raise lots of money for all the baby animals we'll be receiving at Procyon this season.
