The volunteers at Wildlife Rescue Aid Project receive more than 50 striped skunks a year. Then they do what most people would not: they care for the skunks, provide food and shelter, and teach them how to hunt and spray in self defense. These rescued skunks and other mammals native to Oregon are often orphaned or injured and in need of extensive rehabilitation before they can return to the wild. So the volunteers ensure they find proper veterinary care to heal, and spend roughly 20 hours a day in a cycle of feeding and cleaning. When the skunks are ready to go, the volunteers identify each with a marker or cut a specific pattern into its hair to track its progress.
North Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity is one of 33 Habitat for Humanity affiliates in Oregon, and it constructs decent, affordable homes for selected families in need. NWV Habitat builds homes through help from private donations and volunteer labor. The partner families who move into Habitat homes contribute 500 hours of volunteer labor, known as sweat equity, and make modest monthly mortgage payments with zero interest. In the last 25 years, NWV Habitat has constructed 37 homes for local families.
