Food Drive Underway for Rescued Wildlife
As of Aug. 9, Kendalia’s Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation Center — the place panicked Canyon Lake residents call when they find injured or abandoned animals — cared for more than 7,200 animals on its 212-acre sanctuary.
Now the non-profit needs residents’ help feeding the record numbers of animals it’s taken in this year.
Through Aug. 12, food can be dropped off at WRR’s San Antonio location, 1354 Basse Rd., or at the sanctuary in Kendalia, 335 Old Blanco Rd. Drop-off locations are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
