    A message from the host:

    "Walden's Puddle is one of many animal charities I support. Walden's Puddle provides care and treatment to injured and orphaned wildlife, as well as educational experiences to the community, allowing a greater understanding and appreciation of wildlife. I don't just volunteer at Walden's, I also serve on the board.

    As our communities grow, so does the need for organizations like Walden's Puddle. If you would like to find out more or make a donation please visit .Thank you, together we will make a difference." -- Katie Cook.
