I have personally used Michele Thomas's kindness and skills in a home visit to help injured wildlife and have followed her career now for fifteen years or more. I also know Craig Thomson who works with Michele and have no doubt of his dedication to preserving habitat as well as caring for wildlife. For this reason I am publicising the modest request for funding for their wildlife shelter below.

Animalia wildlife shelter is currently undertaking the fit out of a new Triage & Treatment room. This room will be utilised on a daily basis for the wildlife in our care, the majority of animals that come into care will start out in this room and as such we have quite specific needs to fulfil to enable it to be what we require of a treatment room. We have purchased so far over $5695 of product and our resident shop fitter John has been hard at work turning it into what we desperately need. The room is near completion and spring has arrived meaning we have animals pouring through our wildlife shelter in need of our help. We are hoping your venue may be able to help us out financially to finish this project off. We have just received a quote from the electricians which is quite an unexpected amount $2000 which we do not have. This has stalled the project, mean while the animals continue to flow through the doors.

We estimate we will need $4000 to finish this project and are wondering if you would be able to
make a financial contribution to assist us towards our goal.

This comprises of the purchase of water tanks and the cost of the electricity being hooked up, being
so close is heartbreaking when the animals desperately need the facilities now.
