Animal Carriers

Have an old animal carrier hanging around the garage or basement? The Nature Connection supports the wellbeing of individuals and communities by providing access to the many benefits of nature through interactions with plants, animals, and natural materials.  Some of our current program animals include a box turtle, chinchillas, rabbits, chickens, hermit crabs, and more!  Used animal carriers that are still in good condition will be greatly appreciated.
