Give in memory

Celebrate the life of a loved one with the gift of life for wildlife.

Increasingly people who have sadly lost someone close to them are looking for ways to pay their respects and celebrate their life in a meaningful way.

A donation to WIRES given in memory of family or friends can provide a lasting tribute to those close to you and help WIRES in our work rescuing and caring for sick, injured and orphaned native animals.  Every day we put life back in the wild.
