Ash Grove Cement is home to Nebraska Wildlife Rehab
Upwards of 2,000 critters being cared for
Ash Grove Cement’s Louisville plant is home to more than just the machinery and equipment to make cement. Upwards of 2,000 critters being cared for by Nebraska Wildlife Rehab, have resided in the building on the property this year alone.
Ash Grove Cement Company’s Louisville, Nebraska, plant manager signed an agreement extending the use of an on-site building to Nebraska Wildlife Rehab. The agreement gives the rescue center space at $10 per year for the wildlife they receive. Ash Grove first made the building available to the organization in 2010.
“We are happy to provide a home to the center’s staff and volunteers, and the orphaned and injured wildlife they care for,” said Louisville plant manager John Dale.
“The group offers an important service to the state of Nebraska.”
The 4,500-square-foot building is for the staff and volunteers to manage the hotline and conduct animal rehabilitation, education, training and fundraising.
“This facility has allowed NWRI to grow to serve our community and to help exponentially more people and wild animals,” said Nebraska Wildlife Rehab’s executive director, Laura Stastny.
“We have been honored to partner with Ash Grove since 2010 and are grateful for their generosity in their donation of the use of the building for our Wildlife Center.”
