Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society Launches Fundraising Campaign for New Wildlife Hospital

The Pacific Great Blue Heron is just on example of the many kinds of wildlife the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society treatsIn 2014, the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society (MARS) treated more than 700 wildlife patients in a converted garage on three acres of land in the Comox Valley. The garage is part of the original facility established in 1995 when the organization was created and is currently home to everything from treatment space to the washing machine.

MARS has outgrown its original facility, and is seeking to build a new hospital building where staff and volunteers can work on the patients in a clean, quiet and efficient environment. A generous bequest from the estate of local resident Michele Woodrow to MARS has given the organization 11 acres to build a new, modern wildlife center. MARS is in the process of trying to raise the money for the infrastructure and a hospital.

Building Links is proud to support MARS. Please join with us to help to build a facility that will give MARS the tools to send more patients home. Together we can do this!
