We at HOST wanted to send love and best wishes to Amanda and all the poorly furry babies at the AWBAR - Abandoned Wild Babies Animal Rescue. Sadly 3 of the raccoons recently brought to AWBAR were infected with the deadly parvo virus and in the last two days, Amanda has lost 10 baby raccoons :( The virus is difficult to fight and highly contagious but Amanda is battling on with incredible resolve despite being utterly heartbroken by her losses - many of them babies that she had hand-reared since they first opened their eyes. The vet bills are mounting up but Amanda is doing whatever it takes to care for her little patients. So many Etsy sellers have generously donated items for sale in the AWBAR shop to help raise funds for the centre but particularly in the last 48 hours to help raise money for essential anti-biotics and IVs. We would like to thank everyone who has supported AWBAR and express our deep admiration for the stoic work that Amanda is doing - particularly when she has had barely 2 hours sleep in the last 48 hours! Hang in there Amanda - and hang in there furry babies - we are all cheering for you and sending well wishes. If you would like to make a purchase, or donate an item to assist AWBAR with raising finds to cover these new vet bills, please visit the AWBAR shop, or get in touch with Amanda or another member of the team at: http://AWBAR.etsy.com Any support will be most gratefully received; also check out the 'HHH' AWBAR items we have listed (left).
