“It was an incredible opportunity to nominate, and be awarded, a community grant for Thunderbird Wildlife Rescue.  We have worked with Thunderbird Rescue for several years, and their unwavering dedication in working with injured and sick wildlife has never faltered.  It was a great feeling for our entire team to be able to contribute financially to their future plans for a permanent wildlife sanctuary.Tanis Ylimaki, Practice Manager, Crossroads Veterinary Clinic (Rosslyn, ON)
