WE DID IT!!
We are finally moving forward with the construction of our long awaited new facility in nearby Cool, Texas! We’ve worked hard for this moment, but none of this could even begin to be possible without of our generous and loyal supporters. Every time we’ve needed you, you’ve always stepped up, and we can’t possibly thank you enough. Construction has started with completion expected by the spring of 2014 (funds allowing).
We are still in need of donations to finish the flight enclosures, which will include padded floors, stainless steel framing and mesh, aluminum tubing, steel security bars.
The layout has been drafted entirely with the bats in mind as well as those who tend to them, making their stay more comfortable and the volunteer’s jobs much easier. And of course, a larger facility will also allow us to rescue more bats in need.
MATERIALS LIST FOR FLIGHT ENCLOSURES:
Stainless Steel mesh for outdoor enclosure: $4,000
Polyprolene mesh for indoor enclosures: $1,000

The video below honors those we have saved, and it was created as hope for those who are still waiting to be rescued. (Please note that the video depicts a different rendering from above as the design has changed since the video was first made.)
