AWBAR - Abandoned Wild Babies Animal Rescue

In addition to being a member of Etsy for Animals, I am also a member of Team AWBAR. AWBAR is located in Lockport, Illinois and is owned and operated by Amanda Smith. She rehabilitates ducks, raccoons, squirrels, opossums, rabbits, small birds and other small animals.

Relying solely on private donations, AWBAR is NOT a non for profit organization nor is AWBAR attached to any other organization. This is out of the pure love for animals.AWBAR is currently raising money to help offset the expenses of raising and releasing wildlife in 2008. Expenses include: food, shelter, and vet bills. In addition, AWBAR is raising money to help establish not-for-profit status.

You can read more about AWBAR by visiting the AWBAR website and the AWBAR blog.

Amanda has recently cared for baby raccoons that went through a parvo outbreak while in her care. She lost 13 due to the virus and saved many others. She works tirelessly to help the baby animals and her work is very appreciated.

The Etsy Angels team has chosen AWBAR as their August charity. Each member is either donating an item to the AWBAR Etsy shop or donating a percentage of their August sales. Be sure to check out the AWBAR blog for links to the shops of these wonderful, caring Etisans!

That is very neat. There are so many animals that need great homes and to be taken care by loving families.
