US: Ash Grove Cement Company has announced that its Louisville, Nebraska, plant manager John Dale has signed an agreement extending the use of an on-site building to Nebraska Wildlife Rehab Inc (NWRI). The agreement provides the rescue centre space at US$10/yr.

"We are happy to provide a home to the centre's staff and volunteers and the orphaned and injured wildlife they care for," said Dale. "The group offers an important service to the state of Nebraska."

Ash Grove first made the 4500ft2 building available to NWRI in 2010. The building provides a facility for the staff and volunteers to manage the hotline and conduct animal rehabilitation, education, training and fundraising. It typically sees more than 2000 animals each year.

"This facility has allowed NWRI to grow to serve our community and to help exponentially more people and wild animals," said NWRI 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 centre."
