Wildlife Images Offers Free Admission for Furloughed Families

Hot on the heels of a similar announcement from the Oregon Zoo, local non-profit Wildlife Images Rehabilitation & Education Center says it will offer free admission to furloughed federal workers.

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — As the partial government shutdown reaches its 21st day and first missed paycheck, many federal employees and contractors find themselves with extra time on their hands and no income to speak of. In response, local non-profit Wildlife Images Rehabilitation & Education Center says that it will offer free admission to furloughed workers and their families.

"Wildlife Images recognizes the difficult spot federal employees and federal contractors find themselves in during the partial government shutdown. In hopes of providing a respite for families, Wildlife Images is offering free admission to federal employees and contractors, including spouses and children," the organization said in a statement.

The offer begins Friday, January 11 and will continue as long as the shutdown does. Furloughed workers will have to show their federal employment or contract (such as an ID or badge) at check-in to get free admission.

Wildlife Images is open to visitors Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with the park closing at 3 p.m. They are located in Grants Pass on Lower River Road.

Wildlife Images also features a free Wildlife Clinic Talk each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 11:30. The talks are hosted by clinic staff who share details about the current patients in the clinic and why they need care.

According to the non-profit, Wildlife Images helped rehabilitate 1,092 animals during 2018.

The Oregon Zoo announced a similar offer of free admission for furloughed federal employees on Thursday.
