FUNDRAISING FOR WILDLIFE

Starting your own fundraiser for the von Arx Wildlife Hospital and all of the animals treated there is one of the easiest ways you can make a real impact. 


How it will help

Starting your own fundraiser can result in hundreds of dollars going toward the care of injured and orphaned wildlife from little more than emailing your friends and family and a few posts to your social media accounts. 


Easy to set up

We've made it possible to set up your fundraising page in just a few steps.

Once you click the Create a Fundraiser button below, you will be directed to a login page. If you have not created a fundraising page with us before, you will need to click the “Create a New Personal Fundraising Page” link, located directly under the login button.

From there, you will be asked to enter some information about yourself. IMPORTANT: None of your information will ever be shared or sold to a third party.


Sharing your new page

The best ways to share your new fundraising page include sharing the link on your social media accounts, sending an email to freinds and family... or both!

However you choose to promote your fundraiser, it's important to explain why raising money for the von Arx Wildlife Hospital is so important to you. If you volunteer with us, you can share a personal story. If you've brought an injured animal to the wildlife hospital, that's a great story to share! If you don't have a personal story about the von Arx Wildlife Hospital but you love the work we do, we've got you covered.

Below, you will find some attention-grabbing images from inside the hospital, along with some example text, that you can use on your social media accounts.




Images for you to use

Simply right click and save the image to your desktop, or wherever you prefer. From there, all you have to do is post the picture to Facebook as you normally would with the link you created to your donation page.

You are also encouraged to use the text we provided underneath each of the following pictures. The text explains what people will see in the picture along with a call to action. You can use the text as is, or edit to use something more personal.

This baby deer was admitted to the von Arx Wildlife Hospital after it was run over by a tractor-styler lawnmower. And because of the hospital's work, this fawn was eventually released back into the wild! Please donate what you can to help me reach my goal and, more importantly, to help our local wildlife.

This image shows one of the staff members releasing a magnificent frigatebird after weeks of rehabilitation on top of the 55-foot-tall bridge that spans between Marco Island and Naples. The bird was initially admitted because it was found entangled in fishing line and hooks.

Help me help animals like this one! This eastern screech owl was caught in a glue trap that was meant for rats. Luckily, he was brought to the von Arx Wildlife Hospital, where vegetable oil was used to free him from the trap. There was damage to his feathers, but he had plenty of time to rehabilitate at the wildlife hospital before his eventual release back into the wild.

Please help me reach my goal and help our local wildlife!
