Carson City State Conservation Officers Raise Funds for Wild Animal Infirmary
Carson City, Nevada – The dedicated employees of the Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) in Carson City, are proud to support local non-profit organizations through annual fundraisers. This year, one of the recipients of their generosity is the Wild Animal Infirmary for Nevada, also known as WAIF.
WAIF is a non-profit organization operated by a dedicated team of volunteers who are committed to providing care for sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife. The organization relies solely on donations to carry out their mission. Once the animals have fully recovered, they are released back into their natural habitats.
In a heartwarming display of support, Suzette Phelan from WAIF was presented with donations raised by the staff at DCNR. To raise awareness about their important wildlife recovery efforts, Phelan also gave an owl presentation in the lobby of the Richard H. Bryan Building in Carson City.
