WCS Kids Holiday Wishlist

This year our WCS kids have requested gift cards to local stores and restaurants. Download the Gift Card Wish List HERE. This allows them a fun night out or a chance to go shopping for their families. Our community is always so generous during the holiday season. Please send any gift card donations to Development Office by December 15th so they can be distributed. Or if you wish to make a monetary gift, donate to the Holiday Giving fund HERE. Thank you for your support! 






Purchase a WCS Calendar as a Holiday Gift


Make a donation of $20 or more to the WCS Friends of the Farm fund and receive our festive 2024 Calendar as a gift. The 12 month calendar features one of our unique animals and their stories for every month. Help us continue to rescue and rehabilitate injured wildlife in southeastern CT.  Our goal is to build our Friends of the Farm so that we can continue to care for our menagerie of therapeutic animals. Make a donation here or contact to reserve your calendar!
