The wonderful people from CLAWS Inc. are licensed, wildlife rehabilitators that are dedicated to educating the public as well as rescuing and rehabbing wild and exotic animals in need. Any time they have an event, happy crowds of animal lovers are sure to follow! Their latest event was a derby-inspired reception that included a live and silent auction, and a chance to have your photo made with one of the beloved animals of CLAWS. If you missed the fundraiser and would like to help this non-profit, please visit them at www. nc-claws.org.
