Coordinator Report – Afton Tasler
Another rainy day! We were able to get all tours out as the lightning stayed away for the most part.
We got a mush delivery today. Interns and volunteers got together to get all 200 cases in the freezer.
Food prep got done before lunch. Then all of the interns except for Abbey and Fred went to tours.
Since it was raining, Steph, Mary J, myself, and Fred cleaned the porch of the keeper cafe. Two rat cages got fully cleaned, and we swept under all of them. Staff offices got swept and mopped after having a bunch of foot traffic from doing letters..
Promotions – CONGRATULATIONS!!
The Volunteer Committee is pleased to announce the following promotions
- Dylan Lavigne to Level 5 Intern
- Elizabeth Heath to Yellow Shirt

Photos for the Day
Illithia the serval, BCR’s newest rescue, received her first special enrichment from the amazing Wednesday night enrichment team! She got an adorable flower garden with butterflies made out of paper and cardboard lightly sprayed with scents. She was hissy and skeptical at first… but then stuck her whole face inside the box and then laid near it for the afternoon. By Brittany Mira
