Kentucky Wildlife Center Director Susan Russell says they took in a record-breaking amount of animals last year. She says that’s causing the center to have to buy more items, such as food, which is taking a toll on its operation costs.
“We are in desperate need of donations to keep this place running,” Emily Mastoroudis said.
Mastoroudis who is the Animal Care Supervisor at the center says raising the money won’t be easy.
The center receives no state funding and relies on donations to stay in operation.
“It takes us $10,000 to run this place in just one month,” Mastoroudis said.
The center is now asking the public for help. If you’d like to donate, you can do so on the center’s website.
