Santa Barbara’s 31-year-old Wildlife Care Network, which rescued 3,297 animals of 170 different species last year, hosted a supporters party at its seven-year-old Goleta headquarters.

Just the same day the organization had rescued two six-week-old skunk babies and a fox cub of the same age.

Among the animal lovers turning out for the bijou bash were Penny Bianchi, Gretchen Lieff, new board members Ann Smith and Beno Budgor, Wayne and Sharol Siemens, Anne Towbes, Carole Ridding, Arlene Montesano, Kevin Speer, Veronique Chevalier, Sandy Robertson, and Tom and Eileen Mielko.
