Wildlife Rehabilitation
Recent Patients

Winter is typically our "slow" season, with relatively few patients being admitted compared to the summer. However, we've had our hands full with patients like these! 
This adult male California myotis was recently brought to us with a minor wing injury. It is likely he had been disturbed out of torpor as well. He’s recovering well in our ICU!

Patient update: the Western Screech Owl brought to us last month by Benton County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to improve! As the fractured radius continues to heal, the owl remains in good spirits and is eating well in our ICU.

A Warm Welcome to...
Our New Team Members

Bill Quade
Operations Coordinator

Bill grew up running through the forest preserves of the Northern Chicago suburbs along the Des Plaines River. His passion for environmental interpretation and outdoor recreation drove him to pursue a double degree from Carthage College in Environmental Science and Geography, and later a Masters in Natural Resources with a focus in Environmental Education from the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point. After graduating, Bill went on to lead environmental programming in every corner of the country from dog-sledding in Michigan's Upper Peninsula to backpacking trips along the Appalachian Trail.

Before joining the team at Chintimini, Bill spent four years as an outdoor guide in northern New Hampshire, where his work earned him REI's distinguished, international Top Guide award in 2016. When he's not coordinating operations at Chintimini Wildlife Center, you can catch Bill running the trails in the Mac-Dunn Forest, mountain biking at Alsea Falls, or hitting the slopes at Hoodoo.

Dr. Claire Peterson, DVM
Staff Veterianarian

Dr. Claire Peterson is a small animal and avian veterinarian at Frontier Veterinary Hospital in Hillsboro. She graduated with a bachelor's degree from the Johnston Center of Integration Studies in Redlands, CA, and then earned a veterinary degree over 4 years at Oregon State (go beavs!). 

She started volunteering with wildlife when she was 13 years old at Hawk Haven in Estacada, Oregon and hasn't looked back since! She first came to volunteer at Chintimini in 2009 while at veterinary school. In her free time she is a falconer, and currently has a young goshawk named Fletcher. 

Dr. Peterson joins our team to provide veterinary support to rehabilitation patients and resident Raptor Ambassadors alike.
