Stanislaus Wildlife Care Center in Hughson to hold baby shower

May 13, 2013 

The Stanislaus Wildlife Care Center in Hughson is holding its annual Baby Animal Shower on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is a way for the center to collect items it needs to care for injured and orphaned animals.

The center is looking for everything from paper towels and receiving blankets to rubber gloves and heating pads. Cookies and punch will be served, videos will play in the lobby all day, and there will be activities for kids.

And of course, visitors will get to meet and learn about the center's educational animals, including Curley the barn owl, Bella the red fox, the snakes Slither and Oreo, Otis the screech owl, and others.

The center is on two acres along the Tuolumne River in Fox Grove Regional Park. For directions and more about the Baby Animal Shower, visit the center's website at
