DURAND (WIFR) -- Hoo Haven can now put some money toward a much needed piece of equipment thanks to a local farmer's generosity.
Hoo Haven Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center got a check for $2,500. It's all thanks to the farmers at Hines Farms who nominated Hoo Haven for Monsanto's America's Farmers Grow Communities program. Hoo Haven, which helps nurse injured animals back to health, is putting the cash toward digital x-ray machines.
"When we're out in the field and snow owls or whatever come in here we can do the x-ray, then we work with seven vets. We can call the vet that best represents what we would need for that animal and we let them know what’s going on and we can get them into them right away," Karen Herdklotz, Director of Hoo Haven, said.
Hoo Haven was one of 1200 non-profits receiving checks from Monsanto.
