A Richmond company has come to the rescue of a local wildlife organization with the donation of a 50 boxes.
The Great Little Box Company (GLBC) responded to the call of the Wildlife Rescue Association of BC (WRA) for carrier boxes for small birds and mammals.
During the summer, the WRA treated more than 1,500 animals and the organization was running low on re-usable pet carriers, which it uses to rescue and release hundreds of animals across the Lower Mainland.
When the WRA put in a request for carriers, staff at GLBC were only too happy to help.
The company quickly manufactured 50 free boxes with carrying handles, which are just the right size for carrying birds and baby mammals.
The WRA receives hundreds of animals each year from Richmond, said Glenn Boyle, executive director of the WRA.
So we are pleased that a local company has been able to support our mission to help animals in distress.
