Raptor House in Selah Needs Your Help to Save Birds of Prey

Posted: Updated:

SELAH, Wash.--The Raptor House in Selah needs your help to keep helping birds of prey.

The founder of the non-profit and rehabilitation center said many of the birds they take in have lead poisoning, particularly Golden Eagles, Bald Eagles and Turkey Vultures. That's why they're hosting a fundraiser Saturday to help raise money for a lead care machine, which will cost around $5,000.

"If we know immediately by being able to do a blood sample and run it through the machine and get an idea of what the lead levels are within that bird, then we can treat it accordingly," said Marsha Dalan, the Founder and Vice President of the Raptor House.

The fundraiser will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday with two special flight demonstrations. It costs $5 to get in.
