Wildlife Waystation puts out desperate call for money


The animal sanctuary on Little Tujunga Canyon Road is again on the verge of financial collapse and closure, founder Martine Colette says. "After 35 years of taking in animals, the Wildlife Waystation has come to the end of the road," she told the Daily News, breaking into tears. "The economy has devastated fundraising. Unless we get some help, we cannot survive. There are 420 animals here, and they need help."
