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!

These 3 Eastern gray squirrels were rescued from a brush fire last week in Marysville. They were orphaned when a tree was cut down to stop the fire from spreading further. The team of firefighters from the Department of Natural Resources were quick to keep them safe and call us for help. Our interns Lauren and Brittany went to the scene to bring these little ones back to our center. The fire was still active (and sadly was caused by arson) and the interns actually had to make two trips out there, as the squirrels were discovered at different times. Now all reunited, but orphaned due to the complications of their home being destroyed and their mother scared away. They are doing fine and we hope will be released once they are big enough to survive on their own. Thank you to our first responders from a variety of agencies all over the state that are working hard to fight wildfires - it has been a bad year and impacting so many people and animals. Status - released.
