It Takes A Village
The rescue and long term care of wild Animals is a massive undertaking. We happily do this in order to provide them with the respect, Love and healthy conditions they so greatly deserve. In order for us to be successful, it requires a team of dedicated individuals, sufficient funding and support from our loving community to keep BJWT running at maximum capacity.
There are several expenses required to rescue and care for the myriad of Animals under our protection. We couldn’t give our “kids” a place to call home without your continued love and support.
Eddie, founder of BJWT does not receive a salary.
