Ralphie's helps injured wildlife

Posted: Updated:
You have a chance to get a good meal and help a local wildlife rehabilitation center. Nature's Nursery takes in about 3,000 injured, orphaned and sick wild animals every year.

Of course it costs a lot of money to take care of all of them. Nature's Nursery is one of a number of wildlife centers that just lost a big donation. A lab that gave the center tens of thousands of dollars worth of mice and rats has closed. After hearing that story, the folks at Ralphie's wanted to help.

All you have to do is head to one of four local Ralphie's for dinner on Tuesday, May 6th. Laura Zitzelberger is the Director of Operations at Nature's Nursery,"Whether it's a $5 donation, a larger donation or something like this fundraiser it all helps. It takes a lot of money to feed and care for all the animals. For example, two of our animals are having surgery today. It all goes to making sure we are doing the very best job possible."

The fundraiser will be at the Ralphie's in Oregon, Sylvania, Perrysburg and Spring Meadows. 10% of all sales Tuesday night will be donated to Nature's Nursery but you have to bring a flyer for the event with you. If you can't make it Tuesday night, they are also running the fundraiser on May 20th at those four Ralphie's locations.

    The 13abc I-Team taking you to the experts tracking what's going into the Maumee River that's causing that Lake Erie algal bloom. Too much of the toxic algae triggered the "do not drink" order at the start of the August. The Maumee River is one of the lake's greatest water sheds, running more than 130 miles from Indiana through Ohio to the lake. Changes to it could make all the difference. One local university is at the forefront of tracking what's going into the river.
