When one of my housemates purchased a bottle of Dawn for our kitchen, there was discussion of the oil spill and how Dawn is used for cleaning oiled birds. We all felt good about supporting a company that does good things for wildlife. What we never dreamed was that the Dawn in our kitchen would later be used to clean an icky bird. This afternoon the raptor center assistant came upstairs, grabbed the dish soap, and took it down to the clinic. Turns out they had gotten a call about a young Red-tailed Hawk that had fallen into a pool of ick at a waste water treatment plant.
Dawn saves another life!
