Patient of the Week
Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

Bald Eagle - Electric Shock
This young Bald eagle was found on Whidbey Island, unable to fly away. He was rescued and we were able to determine he suffered shock from the electrical lines overhead. This is the second bird in our care right now suffering from electric shock. This eagle is in critical condition due to internal bleeding and the severe injury to his wing. We have reported this to the power company, as they do follow up on these situations to make repairs. Time and supportive care is all we can do for now. If the shock causes the tissues to become necrotic, we may be forced to euthanize. Status: released.
