Excerpt from todays Ottawa Sun. Read the full story or visit the Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary website.

Her name is Linda Laurus and you can call this crisis: The call of the wild.

A call so important, so necessary, and if you care about helping others in genuine need of help, if you have a heart of compassion for small, wild animals that are orphaned, sick, injured; animals that have a right to live, animals that are integral to our ecology, you can rise to the cause, you can save the Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary from the threatening death that would be so wrong.

You who might be a carpenter. A plumber. A drywaller. A floorer. A septic system expert. A supplier of lumber and building materials. You who might be willing and able to volunteer your services to the Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary for free, or at discount, so as to save from abandonment the small, wild animals in the loving custody of Linda Laurus.

You who might simply want to do whatever you can to help. Because it's the right thing to do. Because, at such moments in life, it's what we, as members of the human family, should do.

It breaks Linda Laurus' heart that, increasingly, she is having to say no to taking in animals for lack of space. But there is an answer. The old, abandoned stable back of the farmhouse that can be converted into a shelter.

But the RVWS needs the money it doesn't have. The estimated renovation cost: $35,000. A start has been made through a few beneficent volunteers, but much more is needed, more expertise.

Are you such a person? Can you offer your skills? Will you step up for the special Linda Laurus, the non-profit charity Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, the small animals, to not let this service of tender mercy die?

Linda, and the RVWS, can be reached by phoning 613-258-9480. You can leave a message, Linda will return your call. You can e-mail: rideauwildlife@ripnet.com. If you wish to donate, you can do so online: www.canadahelps.org. You can write: Linda Laurus, Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, P.O. Box 266, North Gower, Ont. KOA 2TO.

The call of the wild. The orphaned, the sick, the injured. A mercy call for you.
