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!

Trapped Turkey Vulture
This patient arrived on 8/21 and sadly was discovered in an illegal leg hold trap. She struggled a while and damaged the feathers on her wings, but the most serious injury is to her foot. She lost one toe and you can see her bright blue bandage. Her condition is guarded but, she is eating well and we are hopeful. Turkey Vultures are amazing birds, so intelligent. Status - Released. See update above October 12.
