DOYLESTOWN, PA, June 2, 2022—The Wilderz Wildlife received a $3000 donation from Holiday House Pet Resort & Training Center. Holiday House Pet Resort & Training Center held its annual Dog Prom fundraiser on Thursday, May 12. Clients of the dog daycare program received an official prom portrait of their dog for a donation to the non-profit wildlife rescue organization as part of the special event.

“We are very excited to support The Wilderz Wildlife organization. The generous support from our family of clients is amazing. Our staff works hard to create engaging events that are fun for the dogs and meaningful for the pet parents and the community. We whole-heartedly support Janine and Susan’s mission of passionately caring for animals and sharing the community with the wildlife around us,” said Dr. Laura Weis, co-owner of Holiday House Pet Resort & Training Center and Doylestown Hospital & Holistic Pet Care.

The Wilderz Wildlife is a non-profit animal rescue. The organization was officially formed in January 2022 by Janine Tancredi and Susan Downing. Its mission is to provide rescue and rehabilitation to wildlife needing care, and establish educational resources and programs for the public.

“Susan and I are grateful to Holiday House Pet Resort and to everyone who donated as part of the event. The donations will be used to purchase the equipment and food necessary to transport and care for the animals we rescue,” said Janine adding “partnering with Doylestown Veterinary Hospital for veterinary care has helped many rescued animals achieve successful rehabilitation and release.”

The Wilderz Wildlife volunteers work with the PA Game Commission Capture & Transport and WIN (Wildlife In Need) groups. They have certifications in wound care, fluid therapy, medical intake, raptors, and threatened and endangered animals. The goal is to become a certified rehabilitation center. Currently, animals rescued by The Wilderz Wildlife are transported to either Red Creek Wildlife Center in Schuylkill Haven, PA, or Cricket Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Alburtis, PA for rehabilitation and transition back to living in the wild.

In June the organization will take the PA Game Commission permit test to be recognized as a formal wildlife rehabilitation organization. A sponsor is a requirement to take the permit test. Red Creek Wildlife Center is sponsoring The Wilderz Wildlife, Inc.

The dog daycare prom theme was a celebration of Star Wars: May the Force Be with You. The event was a galactic celebration. Tulle skirts, bow ties, and garments of the Jedi Order ruled the canine universe. The dogs enjoyed a day of friendship, enrichment, and fun. The pet parents enjoyed complimentary snacks and sips at the Prom After Party during daycare dismissal and pick-up hours. Every dog received a star-shaped gourmet biscuit by Brewscuits in Telford, PA.
