While our animals are always well cared for and provided with enrichment, it is important to "change it up" so to speak - and continually provide novel items for the animals so the enrichment program does not become boring or routine. This is where supporters like you come in - from classroom community projects to group fundraising - your donations from one of our Wish List programs help us provide new and exciting forms of enrichment for the animals in our care.
Oatland Island Wildlife Center welcomes gift cards from home improvement and pet stores in addition to other monetary donations. Here are just a few ideas of physical donations we accept from the public.
Gift cards are always appreciated!
