Patient Updates

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!

Young Porcupine

This young porcupine was rescued from a yard in Marysville. A BIG HUGE thank you to our volunteer Joe for going out on this rescue. It was too scared to leave the yard after being attacked by a dog.

Porcupines are gentle natured, slow moving, and have poor eyesight. It was likely passing through the yard with its mother, when the dog cornered them. Mom probably ran up a tree to escape, but the baby ended up losing lots of quills in the attack. There are no punctures, just a raw spot - and it was terrified.

So, we will have this one with us for quite a while. It is too young to be alone, and it will take a long time for the quills to grow back. Porcupine babies stay with mom the first year. This baby was born sometime between April – June. Status - released.
