While we can't show you every single animal we admit, we love sharing some of our more notable patients and remarkable recoveries with you. As of today, we have admitted 1,502 patients so far this year! Check out a few patients admitted this month who are currently in our care:
Patient #18-1111 is an orphaned Grey Fox kit. This male was underweight, weak, and dehydrated upon intake. He’s been making improvements as he receives fluid therapy and a specialized diet.

This Western Grey Squirrel was found injured in a driveway. The finder suspects it was caught by a hawk and dropped. Luckily, he was brought to us right away and was not overheated, dehydrated or malnourished. He did sustain an injury and so far is on the mend while being cared for by staff.

This little Virginia Rail was brought to us after being found injured and orphaned near the coast. The chick is staying warm and cozy in one of our nursery incubators and is eating well on its own.

If you'd like to help these and other patients, the very best way to do that is by making a donation. Cash contributions allow us to make sure our clinic is fully stocked and staffed so that each of our patients receives the best care possible. We can also accept in-kind donations of specific supplies we need. To learn more about either of these giving opportunities, please visit our website.

Do you have a favorite or most memorable patient (past or present)?
Every year there is one patient that really pulls at my heart strings. This spring we had a very dehydrated and emaciated infant raccoon come in who wasn't likely to survive. That weekend there were 9 raccoons to care for on shift. But, this little patient was struggling from one feeding to the next. Every time I would get his formula ready for feeding time, I was hoping he was still alive. I knew this raccoon needed much more than a bottle and a warm bed; so I gave him extra time, love, and care. I monitored him much closer and I prayed a lot. By the end of the weekend he was acting like a little raccoon who was likely to live. I'll always feel special about that little raccoon. 
Supporters like Noemi are a vital part of our community. We are lucky to work with some of the most compassionate people around who ensure that the animals in our care are safe and healthy. We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to all of the volunteers, donors and other supporters who make our work possible. Thank you.
Please join us in thanking Noemi for her outstanding commitment to serving our community's wildlife. 
You can protect wildlife, too. Donate Today!
