During the next few days of below-freezing temps, icy and snowy roads, our limited staff of Daniel Andrews and Gail Barnes could use some help. Our raptors must be brought indoors and kept in pet taxis during the coldest days or nights, as they are all compromised in some way. Laundry to keep them all clean is astronomical, and daily chores of food prep, water changes and general housekeeping go on. If you have an hour or an afternoon and can help, give them a call to let them know you'll be coming. 806 799-2142. Any help right now is sincerely appreciated!
Our barn renovation started December 2nd. The interior is all cleared out on all three floors; the new roof is on, and sky-lights are installed.
This is the project we've been saving for during the last 25 years, and now it's finally going to become a reality!
Windows are ordered and more work will start soon. Follow us on Facebook, too!
Founder Carol Lee created a Facebook account in mid-June. The day before, she signed SPWRC up on the GoFundMe website at GoFundme.com so it could be piggy-backed onto my new Facebook account. I hope we’ll get some donations from this site to help us reach our goal to modify our 26 year old three-story barn which has never been completed. For 19 years we were 100% volunteer, but when we had to hire a full and part-time employee, I saw that dream receding into the distant future. Last year, however, we received $189,435.00 from the Talkington Foundation, and this is seed money to jump start this project and makes it become a reality. A “good faith estimate” by our architect and builder estimates the cost at $295,621.00. We’d like to raise the difference - $106,186.00 – so we don’t have to strip our savings. Every penny not used for operating expenses has been put in the bank and we have no debt. Please check it out. If we’ve helped you in the past, perhaps you will help us reach our goal now! The photo above is the current, tired barn.
